How Jason Kidd will unlock Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic: 1. Improve strengths

Mirin Fader wrote a book on Giannis Antetokounmpo that drops on Aug. 10. An excerpt was published by The Ringer after the Bucks won the championship. Jason Kidd plays a central role in the piece as he tries to help Giannis reach his potential. There is talk of improving his ball-handling and playmaking ability, while forcing him to play to his strengths. It is a must-read piece for Mavericks fans if you haven’t already.

Kidd worked 1-on-1 with Antetokounmpo a lot, and he figures to do the same with Doncic. The Hall of Famer is going to help Luka improve his strengths. The Mavs star will have more confidence to take step back 3-pointers, unleash his playmaking ability, and score the ball. Kidd took Giannis’ best attributes and made them significantly better. If he does that with Luka, the Mavs superstar is going to be the best player in the league.

Luka Doncic will be scary good under head coach Jason Kidd. The Hall of Famer will help the 22-year-old reach his potential. There will be defensive improvements to go along with the upgrades across the board of the offensive end of the floor. Expect Doncic to win his first MVP award under coach Kidd, and the team’s offensive potential is limitless with Luka running the show.
