Why Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic is underpaid in massive extension: 1. Best player in the world

Luka’s 48-point performance against Argentina to open the Olympics brought back the conversation about who is the best basketball player in the world right now. Does LeBron still hold the crown? Has Giannis taken the mantle after two MVPs and winning the title? Is it Durant or Curry? Do not forget Nikola Jokic is the reigning NBA MVP. Doncic is in the conversation, but in three years it may be unanimous.

Consider this, three years ago Luka was third overall in the 2018 NBA Draft and now he is a top-five player in the league. What can he do in the next three years? Doncic is already an unstoppable offensive force, but fans can expect his jumper and conditioning to improve. There will be more clutch makes and game-winners to cement his standing.

The best player in the league is always underpaid. Luka Doncic will soon be that man if he is not already. Everyone expects him to win multiple MVPs and championships. He is that special.

The Dallas Mavericks should be thankful that Luka wears their uniform and wants to stay in Dallas for the foreseeable future. It is a journey fans will want to be a part of moving forward, so stay tuned.
