Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic is impossible to stop

Luka has seen every defense, and he knows how to exploit them. The 23-year-old is the best pick and roll ball-handler in the world right now. He uses the screens to attack the paint, pull up in the mid-range, to go to his step-back jumper, or free a teammate for an open look. Doncic’s size allows him to see over the defense, and his passing chops are second to none.

Luka is the best shot creator in the NBA. He makes his teammates better by getting them open and feeding them the ball at the right moments. The Mavs superstar is also an elite finisher at the rim, a deadline mid-range marksman, and a stellar 3-point shooter.

Kevin Durant is a better pure scorer than Doncic. Stephen Curry is the superior shooter. Other top talents have edges on Luka, but none of them can match his offensive game. Add in his 6’8 frame and strength, which allows Doncic to hold his own on the defensive end of the floor to make him the best player on the planet.

Luka Doncic is the best player in the NBA already. It is the combination of offensive skills that separates him with his playmaking being the standout in his arsenal. Doncic puts up historic numbers on a nightly basis, and he always does something more important.
