The Dallas Mavericks traded up to secure the rights to Luka Doncic in the 2018 NBA Draft. It cost them two first-round picks, but the teenage prodigy quickly became a superstar. He won Rookie of the Year and has made two straight All-NBA teams. Luka is about to lead Dallas to the playoffs for the third straight year and has become a perennial MVP candidate.
Doncic is no stranger to making history. He already has the most triple-doubles in Mavericks' history, and he continues to become the youngest player to accomplish countless feats. The 6’7 point forward is going to keep improving, but the rest of the league is already on notice.
Luka turned 23 years old on Feb. 28, and here is a look at his three game-winning buzzer-beaters to celebrate.

Dirk Nowitzki hit three game-winning buzzer-beaters in his legendary 21-year career with the Mavs. Luka tied that mark earlier this season when he sank a deep 3-pointer against the Boston Celtics. Fans can watch all three of his game-winners, including his unforgettable playoff make inside the bubble against the Clippers below.
Doncic has ice in his veins, and he thrives in the biggest moments. The 23-year-old superstar is never afraid to take those clutch shots no matter how tight the defense tries to guard him.
Fans are just witnessing the beginning. Yes, Luka is already in his fourth NBA season, but the 23-year-old is still years away from his peak. Doncic is on pace to become an all-time great and inner-circle Hall of Famer. Expect him to keep improving on his way to be the best player in the league during his prime.
Luka Doncic is white-hot right now. He averaged 31.4 points, 10.3 rebounds, and 8.9 assists in 36.2 minutes per over the last 20 games. Defenses are throwing everything at him, but the Dallas Mavericks superstar keeps putting up incredible numbers. Happy Birthday to Luka, and the best is yet to come from Doncic, so stay tuned.
