The Dallas Mavericks have won seven of their last nine games to surge to fifth in the Western Conference. Superstar Luka Doncic is still working his way back from a ten-game absence, but he continues to put up outstanding numbers as he looks to make his third straight All-Star team.
Doncic slipped to third among Western Conference guards in the latest release of fan voting. He is 14th in the league with over 1.4 million ballots cast for him. Fan voting counts for 50 percent in selecting the starters, so MFFLs need to get out and make their voices heard if they want Luka starting for the third straight year.
If Luka’s fan voting total does not improve, he could be in danger of missing out on the game altogether, so here is a closer look at why supporters need to get out and cast their ballots.
Luka Doncic slips to 3rd among West guards in 2022 All-Star voting
The race for positions in the Western Conference is tight. Among guards, Stephen Curry, Ja Morant, Chris Paul, Devin Booker, and Donovan Mitchell all can make cases to be selected over Doncic. The frontcourt has two clear options in LeBron James and Nikola Jokic before having a plethora of toss-ups.
Luka was the only Maverick to appear in the top ten at any position in All-Star fan voting. This is the second round and voting closes on Jan. 22. Fans can cast their votes on Twitter, NBA.com, or inside the NBA app. MFFLs need to vote Doncic once per day if they want to see the 22-year-old superstar in the game in Cleveland.
Expect Luka Doncic to make a comeback in the voting. If he is not chosen as a starter, the 22-year-old could still be selected as a reserve by the league’s coaches. Everyone loves watching him play, so expect number 77 to find his way to Cleveland in February for a special weekend as the NBA celebrates its 75th anniversary. The easiest way to get him there is to vote for Luka to start, so do not forget to do your part.
