The Dallas Mavericks are all in on winning a championship within the next few years as they re-signed Kyrie Irving to a three-year deal (with a player option after the second year) and still have Luka Doncic under contract for the next four seasons (with a player option after the third year and he'll most likely opt out for more money).
With all of that being said, the Mavs' window to win the NBA Finals with Doncic and Irving at the helm is short. All of the role players will have to click quickly with this dominant duo, or things won't go as planned for the Mavs.
Changes could be coming if Doncic and Irving don't work out together, and it'll be interesting to see what the Mavs do if this duo doesn't start making some deep playoff runs.
Here is a look at the Mavs' dream starting five in five years.
PG: Luka Doncic
No shocker here, the Mavericks' dream point guard of the future is Luka Doncic.
Doncic has played five seasons for the Mavs, and having him in Dallas for another contract would be a dream come true for Mavs fans. In five seasons in Dallas, Doncic has averaged 27.6 points, 8.6 rebounds, 8.0 assists, and 1.1 steals per game.
Doncic has turned into one of the league's best players right in front of Mavs fans' eyes, and losing a generational talent like Doncic would be heartbreaking. But they have to start winning if they want to keep him happy. There have already been rumors that Doncic could request a trade if Dallas doesn't improve (which he later turned down), and Dallas missing the playoffs again could drive him out of town.
If Doncic's game continues to develop and he gets better every season just like he has, he could have multiple MVP trophies at this point, and he will be the leader of the Mavs for years to come.
