Luka will win ROY

BUT if the Mavs win 50 games (I know I am being very optimistic here)...does look have a case for MVP if her puts up 20 6 and 4 all year??


Any thoughts??

No way Luka will win an MVP Award this season. Giannis has 34 // 13 // 6 at the moment..

I dunno about MVP, but All-Star might be in the cards.

Well I wasn’t saying he would win it but I think he would have a good case. Some of those other guys are clearly going to put up some better numbers and their teams might be better. But Lukas play has been great and if he helped lead us to 50 wins after last season and into the playoffs, that make him the Mavs MVP and again make a solid case for league MVP. I understand that with him being a rookie it’s very very unlikely.

Either way, the kid is a lot more exciting then I envisioned and I love his passion and game overall.

I hope Doncic is really happy here because I want him to be a Mav for life. Also he needs to get a max contract from us. Luckily, we have time for that, but he'll be worth it.

We know AD will be injured around that time, so replacement maybe?

Can Dennis Smith Jr. and Luka Doncic play together?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jy4EHrCIDgA

nice little montage and discussion
obviously a work in progress but more and more I think we just need to be patient as they learn to play with each other

Luka got ROY locked up if he doesn't get injured

I love the work jordan put in as rebounder and defender need a younger more athletic version of him to pair up with luka

What will go a long way is if DSJ takes just a bit of a back seat offensively and continues to work on his defensive game...It's ok if DSJ is only the #3-#4 option on offense moving forward..

It's an interesting conversation for sure. Would we all be OK if he became a better version of say....Avery Bradley?

Per Rick Carlisle, Luka Doncic (hip) is much improved and looks like a good chance he returns Tuesday against Blazers after missing Sunday vs. Clips. Maxi Kleber a little less certain with right knee soreness. Dennis Smith Jr. getting a root canal today but should be fine Tuesday
Dude is getting wrecked like Dirk— but also bounced back quick like Dirk

If you like me plan to tune into the latest "30 thoughts for 30 teams" Ringer Podcast and hoping for a solid Mavs / Luka take, I can save you some disappointment. You are going to wait the full pod only for them to play out the show with "Halleluka".

Fake news got me again! I was thinking he's won 3 RotM awards (Oct, Nov, Dec?)? And I was also thinking how did Trae win it with him?

https://www.basketball-reference.com/awards/rom.html
This was the first RotM award this year.
Trae was the East winner and Doncic was the West.

Does anyone have any insight as to what the camera work is like overseas? Is it more wide shots with less of the closeups in between the action? I notice that Luka seems to get caught making goofy faces and things more often than others. Maybe he just doesn't care, but I was wondering if there was any difference in how those games are televised that might explain some of it.

Here you go, a YT video from a EUROLEAGUE match. Double ankle breaker and reaction. He is just a kid who is enjoying playing basketball, and does this in a fantastic way.

Greetings from Slovenia.
