He came to the first Real Madrid team and soon gained his first-class status, came to the NBA and received the status of the invincible Dallas Mavericks. Although Luka Dončić has not reached 20 years, he plays as legends of world basketball.
Statistics in the last ten matches are at Luki Dončič admirable. 24.7 points, 7.8 rebounds, and 7.2 assists are the numbers under which a Slovenian young man who plays as the best basketball player in the NBA was signed. During this period he also reached two triple twins, a historical event, because no teenager could ever sign such successes before him.
Many skeptics were ahead of the season. In fact, before the start of the NBA. The clubs that chose the first did not want to risk and bring their Europeans in their own way, as some have already burned in the past. Luke is a great secret for all. Also for Atlanta she chose as the third, she replaced fifth Dallas. Now clubs are likely to react differently when they see what a Slovenian young man does with the world's best basketball players.
Luka Dončić: Dirk, do not say too many names, please
Third in the last 20 years?
Basketball enthusiasts around the world loved him and gave him a tremendous support in voting for the All-Star match. Since the voices of the players and the media were also counted, he could not reach the top five, but everyone wondered if they would be among the seven midfielders on each side of the game of all the stars.
After Goran Dragic another Slovenian would be the one who achieved this kind of success, and only a third newcomer in the last twenty years. In 2011, it has succeeded Blake Griffineight years ago to the Chinese Yao Mingu. The latter came to star because of the great influence of China because at the time of the bold season it did not have commendable numbers – 13 points and 8.1 rebounds per match.
In the last century, newcomers have got more options in the game of all stars. Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Shaquille O'Neal, Hake Olajuwon, Patrick Ewing, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Oscar Robertson, Wilt Chamberlain there are just some famous names …
Doncic stole the record for the best and listened to praise #video
In legend society
If we only look at the season of modern basketball, we see that Luke is statistically among the best who were mostly older when they entered the NBA. Air Jordan, which has six titles, has been in the NBA for 21 years. King Lebron James he was only 18 when he came to the NBA, but in the cross-season he showed excellent performances, which in his subsequent career brought him to three master rings.
James and Antetokounmpo are preparing, but now they are a central star
But in the graphic above, we can also see how some of the current NBA stars spent a different baptism than Doncic. James Harden, which has a crazy season this season and an average of 36 points per game – a 61-point record this year – played 22 minutes on the game after entering the NBA, reaching 9.9 points per game.
Captain of one team at this year's All Star Game, Greek Giannis Antetekounmpohe needed time to get used to playing the world's best. In the first season he scored only 6.8 points in the second, 12.7 points and in the sixth season he was already among the league's top stars (26.5 points, 12.6 rebounds and 5.9 assists).

Doncic's peasant Trae Youngwho participated in the exchange between Atlanta and Dallas, is 100 percent sure he will make a big step forward and will be better than the Slovenian basketball gem in five to ten years of playing in the NBA. "This is the competitiveness I have in my blood, so it's an obvious answer for me," Young said recently, but stressed that he had appreciated Dončić's achievements.
In the past, many have said that Luki is bordeaux in the sky so he will be interested in watching his ongoing basketball trip in the NBA. Maybe the new door opens on February 17, when Charlott plays all the stars. It is clear that he belongs to the All-Star weekend because he will play in the race of rising stars.
