Luka Doncic has the entire NBA running for their money after what he did during the Dallas Mavericks playoffs run this season. He put up consistent stellar performances clinching crucial matchups during each series. This also helped the team land one of the top spots in the NBA seeding overall. The Mavs have a bright future ahead of them with Luka as a leader.
This season he averaged 28.4 points, 9.1 rebounds, and 8.7 assists per game shooting 45.7% from the field. He entered the MVP ranking hitting the fifth spot in the race late in March 2022. The player has always been a solid candidate for the league’s most prestigious award and it seems like he might be on his way to winning it next year potentially.
Luka Doncic rips through the first and second rounds of the playoffs
Luka Doncic has been another player who became the key to their team’s success. He managed to elevate the Mavericks into the playoffs during his sophomore year averaging 31 points, 9.8 rebounds, and 8.7 assists per game. The following year he averaged 35.7 points in a seven-game stretch but exited in Game 7 against the Los Angeles Clippers.
Once again, Doncic put up an average of 31.7 points, 9.1 rebounds, and 6.4 assists in the 15 games he participated in the playoffs. He became one of the only players to average consistent numbers as such joining Giannis Antetokounmpo. The Mavs faced a Game 7 elimination against the Phoenix Suns but he managed to brush through with ease. He put up 32.5 points per game and finished the final matchup with 35 points on the board.
Andre Iguodala praises Luka Doncic calling him a potential GOAT
The Golden State Warriors took an early lead in the Western Conference Finals leaving Dallas in a 0-3 deficit. Game 4 shed some hope into Dallas’ title run but the Dubs ultimately won in the closer last night. “I’m still learning. After this season is done, wherever we are, I think we’ll look back and learn a lot of things. It’s my first time in conference finals in the NBA. I’m 23, man, I’m still learning a lot.”
Warriors’ veteran player, Andre Iguodala revealed that he was very impressed by the way the young all-star is playing. He said, “I wanna talk about somebody that has our attention, by our I mean the Warriors, but he’s had mine for a few years now. Luka Doncic, this white boy is a problem and it’s getting to a point where I don’t think he’s white anymore.” Doncic finished his season landing a spot in the first team All-NBA and by the looks of his offensive prowess, he will potentially be a threat to LeBron James’ all-time records.
