The defender of the Dallas Mavericks Luka Doncic has been playing for the NBA less than two years. During this period, the Slovenian has achieved brilliant results. Luka exceeded all expectations and even broke Michael Jordan’s record.
Doncic is setting such incredible achievements as if it is the 1960s and 1970s, the eras of the dominance of individuals like Oscar Robertson and Karim Abdul-Jabbar. By the way, Luka surpasses these outstanding basketball players with enviable constancy.
In December 2019, in the NBA regular-season game, the basketball player scored more than 20 points, 7 rebounds, and 8 assists. Luka surpassed legendary Michael Jordan’s record. Jordan surprised everyone with the longest streak. He managed to score 20/5/5. To clarify: Doncic at that time was only 20 years old, while Jordan was 27 years old at the peak of his career.
Doncic was the first who scored more than 30 points, about 11 rebounds, and more than 15 assists in a game that lasted less than a half an hour.
December 2019 again, the Mavericks played against the Golden State Warriors. He reached the figures described above. No one has done anything like this in such a short period.
Doncic is the youngest player of the league to complete a triple-double with fantastic achievement. He scored 30 points and 20 rebounds.
The record was broken during the restart of the season in Orlando. In the match against Sacramento (Luka has a special love for the club, which refused to pick him in the 2018 draft) Doncic scored more than 30 points, 21 rebounds, and 11 assists in less than 45 minutes. He was 21 years and 158 days old– no one did anything like this at such an early age. The most interesting thing is that the season is not over yet, which means more surprises await us.
