Bold prediction for 2021-2022 Dallas Mavericks: 3. Luka averages 10 dimes and wins MVP

Luka Doncic is going to take his game to another level this season. His jumper improves again, the free throws woes become a thing of the past, and the 22-year-old shows off a few new tricks on his way to a monster season.

Doncic improves across the board, but the biggest increase comes in his assists. He averages over ten per game under Jason Kidd. The Hall of Fame point guard wants to get the ball moving and increase the tempo. That will mean more opportunities for Luka, and fans know the 22-year-old superstar will take advantage.

It also helps Luka increase his scoring to over 30 points per game. He is going to have plenty of opportunities to attack, and Kidd will help Doncic improve his efficiency. The result is 30-plus a night and finishing second in points per game to Stephen Curry.

The increased stats coupled with the Dallas Mavericks jumping up in the standings helps Luka Doncic win his first NBA MVP award. He makes his case for his best player in the world and becomes an all-time great after just four seasons. Luka also leads the league in triple-doubles in an unforgettable year.
