Goal for Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic this season: 4. Lead number one offense
The Mavs led the NBA and produced the highest offensive rating of all-time at 115.9 during the 2019-2020 season. Their record was eclipsed by seven teams last year as Dallas dropped to eighth in the league at 114.6. The main difference was the swap of Seth Curry, one of the best 3-point shooters, for Josh Richardson, who is a below-average one. Dallas was hoping it would improve their defense, but they regressed on that side of the ball too.
The Mavericks will be one of the top offenses as long as Luka Doncic is leading their charge, but they cannot settle for that. If Dallas wants to climb into title contention, they must return to being an elite offensive unit.
The additions of Reggie Bullock and Sterling Brown should be massive as both players shot north of 40 percent from 3-point range last season. Bringing in two elite shooters to space the floor will make the Mavs impossible to stop.
Luka Doncic should make it his goal to lead the best offense in the NBA this season. The Dallas Mavericks will need health, chemistry, and some improvements, but they could lead the league in offensive rating for the second time in three seasons.
