Dallas Mavericks prediction for 2022-23 season: 2. Luka Doncic wins MVP

The time is now for Luka. The 23-year-old just lifted the Mavs to the conference finals, but it did not raise the team's expectations from the national media. Most are expecting Dallas to take a step backward, but Doncic is still the favorite to win MVP. It speaks to his greatness, and the 6’7 point guard joins the all-time great this season.

Luka increases his scoring, leads the league in triple-doubles, and keeps the Mavericks in the top four in the West. Number 77 wins his first NBA MVP honors this season in runaway fashion.

Doncic will lead the league in usage, and it should climb without Jalen Brunson. Spencer Dinwiddie is the team’s only other lead playmaker, so number 77 will have to handle a bit larger workload this year. Luka is at his best with the ball in his hands, and he will have it plenty in the 2022-23 campaign.

Fans will never forget his 60-point performance or how Luka lifted his team into the West’s top four. It is going to be a magical season for Doncic, and fans should be excited to watch every second of the action. Luka wants the Mavs to win, and if they do, their superstar will win MVP this season.
