Leading up to the NBA Awards show on June 24th in which Luka Doncic will officially be announced as the KIA NBA Rookie of the Year I wanted to take a trip down memory lane and revisit some of Luka’s top moments during his incredible Rookie season.
This may have not been the most exciting season for Mavs fans, as the team is again at the bottom of the NBA standings, but the opportunity to watch the young guys grow and to watch the GOAT ride off into the sunset, has made this a season I will never forget.
There have been some incredible individual Maverick performances this season, even if they may not have always resulted in wins. One of the best parts of being a Mavericks season ticket holder is that on any given night you might see greatness. What may appear to be an uninteresting game mid-season can quickly turn into memorable moments and performances.
A look at the top 5 Rookies from the 2018 NBA Draft class.
The 2018 NBA Draft was loaded with top level talent, there have been numerous Rookies to make a significant impact for their teams this season, but there have been 5 Rookies that have separated themselves from the rest.
All-Star voting breakdown and projected Western Conference Froncourt Reserves.
2019 NBA All-Star Starters were announced on Thursday and much to the dismay of Mavericks fans and Luka Dončić fans across the world, he was not selected. However, the dream of sending our WonderBoy to the All-Star Game in Charlotte, NC on Feb. 17 is not dead. Now that the Starters have been determined, it is now time to figure out the Reserves.
Luka Dončić is raking in the fan votes, but unfortunately that is only half the equation.
We are in the midst of All-Star voting season and all Mavericks fans and Luka Dončić fans are committed to sending the 19 year old Slovenian Sensation to the 2019 All-Star game in Charlotte, NC. A few weeks into voting and a few weeks left to go, it is a good time to review how the All-Star starters voting works and see what kind of chance Luka Dončić has of joining the court with the worlds best ballers. Remember, fan voting is just half of the equation, so what else does it take for this dream to become a reality?
This 2018-2019 season has been a blast so far for Mavericks fans. We get to watch the greatest Maverick of all time play with the best prospect the Mavs have ever had. With the long time greatness of Dirk Nowitzki and the meteoric rise to stardom of Luka Dončić, it is easy to forget some of the other great players that have worn Dallas across their chest in the 39 years the franchise has been in existence.
I am not going to get into why Luka Dončić should be an All-Star this season, I will leave that to my last few articles on the subject combined with Luka’s nightly performance for the Dallas Mavericks as why he should be on everyone’s All-Star ballots.
For those of you who are already looking to maximize your Luka Dončić All-Star votes here is an easy daily routine to make sure you give Luka the best chance to share the court with the best basketball players in the World where he belongs.
All Star voting has been announced. Here is when and how you can vote for Luka Doncic to be a 2019 NBA All-Star.

Luka Doncic, age 19, just 23 games into his NBA career, has already proved to be the best player on his team and one of the most clutch players in the league. Being clutch is nothing new to Luka, he has been doing it for years in EuroLeague where Pros 10 years older than him defer to the teenager and allow him to have the ball in his hands in clutch moments.
Cruising through Mavericks youtube videos I stumbled upon this video of interviews from September when Mavs opened training camp. With Dirk returning soon it seemed relevant to hear him speak on his role this season. There are also some great moments from DeAndre Jordan, Dennis Smith Jr, and Luka Doncic.
