Goal for Luka Doncic this season: 1. Lead Dallas Mavericks on deep playoff run
This will be Luka’s only true goal for the season. He does not care about individual accolades because all Doncic wants to do is win games. The 22-year-old was not shy about the Mavs’ goal heading into last season, and he won’t be this year either. Luka wants Dallas to win a championship.
It often takes baby steps in the NBA. First, a superstar makes the playoffs, and then, things grow into making the second round or conference finals. It is a slow climb to title contention for most players and teams.
Luka Doncic will set the goal at winning the championship, but the Dallas Mavericks making it to the second round is more realistic. The 6’7 guard will be relied on heavily, but he always rises to the challenge. The Mavs have not won a playoff series since 2011, but Doncic works hard everyday to change that in 2022.
Mavericks fans should be excited about the upcoming season. They will get to watch Luka Doncic put on a show every night as he tries to lead the Mavs on a deep playoff run. Expect a monster year from Luka, and please, check back to The Smoking Cuban for plenty more on the Mavericks this season.
