Does Trae Young really think he has a chance at ROY? Or even Donovan Mitchell whobsaid TY shouodbwin it? Are these guys for real? Luka likely had better numbers than he (Mitchell) did. Should be unanimous.

Is that Trey Young or a Hawks fan brain? You be the judge.

Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle recently joined the Dennis and Cowlishaw show on ESPN Dallas 103.3 [KESN-FM] to provide some insight on the offseason ahead for Luka Doncic. Here are some of the highlights:

https://sportsday.dallasnews.com/dal...-offseason?f=r

What are we going to see in Luka Doncic's growth if he puts in the same kind of work in his first offseason guys like Dirk Nowitzki and Steve Nash did in their first couple of offseasons?

Carlisle: "The possibilities are really infinite. He can really take this to whatever level he commits to. Our job is going to be to give him the tools for success by being there for him, being in the gym with him, giving him the right things to work on, giving him the right conceptual things that he needs to do to help our team to continue to get better - but it's a slow climb.

"Go back to when Dirk was a rookie - and he didn't have this kind of success his rookie year. In his case, that really drove him even harder. And one thing that Luka is going to have to take away from this -- which is difficult if indeed he does win rookie of the year, which I agree with you he will - to not over-celebrate that success and just feel like you've kind of arrived. That's one of the traps that can happen.

"We talked to him about that [Friday] and how, look, this gets harder and you're going to have to dig in even more. We had a great meeting with him, and I think he has an understanding of what needs to happen. But from this point going forward, it's all about the work."

What is his summer going to look like - the balance between work and rest?

Carlisle: "Well, there will be a period of rest now. He'll be back in Dallas for a week in May and a week in June with our other young guys to do a developmental week twice. And I'm going to go to Slovenia at a certain point - I don't want to advertise when it is because I don't want it to be a media circus - to get in the gym with him along with one of our other staff guys.

"Look, we've got to set the tone for the importance of this summer for him. It's got to be the right amount of rest, and the right amount of hard work. He hasn't had this long an offseason in any time in recent years. All the EuroLeague stuff has been going well into June, and he's always been on one of the good teams. And so every day is going to be a day where he's got to decide - what is it today? What is it today to move to tomorrow and keep getting better?

"If he approaches this summer the way that I believe he's going to, he's going to have a chance to keep moving his career upward and upward and upward."

Have to hope his early success doesn’t go to his head. I’ve already seen him doing ads for Bose and a watch company. He’s got plenty of things he can add to his game to become elite.

That's OK, though. He's got to learn to conquer both sides of being a young star. The endorsements only ease his financial state of mind while getting his personality out there. I think between the Carlisle comments and Luka's demeanor, he has the right mind to approach it. Can't hurt learning from Dirk either.

As legacy, stars, market, fanbase, etc goes then as we all know Dallas Mavericks isn't on same level as big clubs like Knicks, Lakers, Celtics, Bulls and Warriors. One might even say, that they need to catch Rockets, Nets, etc before.

Nowitzki era with Mark Cuban ownership helped Mavericks to become top10 most valuable NBA club, but to make next step, Mavericks needs another really big star. There is golden opportunity at least catch up with Bulls and maybe even Celtics when Luka era goes well. Hopefully also Dallas as a city can become so called "world class" city.

Luka Doncic is one of the most marketable young NBA star there is and he can help Mavericks to become one of the major clubs. To do that, only winning isn't enough. He needs to build his brand. Thankfully he is friend with Kobe Bryant. He was master at balancing training and brand building.
