The Dallas Mavericks signed Luka Doncic to a historic extension this offseason, but that was only the beginning. Now, they have to build a championship team around their 22-year-old superstar. Doncic qualified for the enhanced extension because he made two All-NBA teams in his first three seasons. There are no questions about his play, but the supporting cast must improve for Dallas to win at the highest level.
Luka is a human highlight reel with his incredible no-look or behind-the-back passes, fancy finishes, and those unbelievable step back threes. The Mavericks star puts on arguably the best show in the league.
The NBA is celebrating dunk week by showcasing the best jams of the season. Doncic took the opportunity to have some fun with it. Let us take a closer look.
Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic trolls his dunk ability
The Mavs posted Doncic’s best dunks to celebrate the week, and Luka added his thoughts on Twitter. See both below.
That prompted Ballislife to repost a video of the Mavericks superstar dunking before a game that had Doncic laughing.
Luka can get up and throw one down, but he cannot jump out of the gym. Doncic won’t be winning the dunk contest, no matter how much he dreams about it. The 22-year-old will be one of the best players in the league this season, and fans are going to see the best version yet. Other teams are dreading facing the Dallas Mavericks because Luka is impossible to slow down.
Expect Luka Doncic to set up plenty of dunks this season. He will throw down a few but expect him to save them for special moments. The 22-year-old is unique and brings joy to the game. The Dallas Mavericks are lucky to have him, and the best is still yet to come from both Luka and the team. Stay tuned.
