Dallas Mavericks storyline to follow this season: 1. Luka’s MVP chase

For the second straight year, Luka Doncic enters the year as the favorite to win MVP. The 22-year-old struggled out of the gates last season and could never work his way back into the conversation, but that will change if the Mavs are near the top of the Western Conference standings.

Luka is going to put up massive numbers, but will he win the award? Dallas needs to be a top-three team in their conference with Doncic producing nearly a triple-double per game. He also must create a few unforgettable moments like his game-winner against the Celtics and Grizzlies last season.

Luka Doncic is one of the best players in the world, but to cement his status as the heir to the throne, the Dallas Mavericks need to make a deep playoff run as he takes home his first NBA MVP honors. All of that is possible in the 2021-2022 season if things break right for Doncic and the Mavs.
