Thing to watch for at Dallas Mavericks open practice: 1. Luka Magic
Luka Doncic is going to put on a show for Mavs fans on Sunday afternoon. It was a shortened offseason made smaller by Luka’s run to the Olympic semifinals, but it left the 22-year-old in fantastic shape and ready to hit the ground running. He will be ready to showcase his incredible skill set in front of the American Airlines Center crowd at Fan Jam.
Doncic added a few things to his game this offseason, and fans should be on the lookout for changes. In year two, Luka became a better finisher around the rim, especially with his left hand. Last season, he improved his jumper and added a deadly mid-range game. What is next for the Mavericks superstar? Sunday is fans' first chance to find out.
Doncic is no stranger to pulling out some wild tricks in preseason and exhibition games. Fans may remember this beauty from a 2019 preseason game against the Pistons.
Fans can expect Luka Doncic to put on an absolute show at the team’s open practice on Sunday afternoon. He signed a historic contract extension this summer and talked about how Dallas felt like his second home. The 22-year-old will want to show off for his supporters for the first time in the 2021-2022 season on Oct. 3.
Dallas Mavericks fans cannot miss this event, so be sure to head down to the American Airlines Center or watch the live stream, and check back to The Smoking Cuban after the scrimmage for all the latest.
