Rookie of the Year frontrunner and Dallas Mavericks sensation Luka Doncic is wowing everyone with his rookie season. Even himself.

Doncic believes that he is playing better than many expected him to as he transitioned to the NBA from the EuroLeague, where he was named their MVP.

“I played professionally with a lot of good European players. So, yeah,” Doncic said of his transition to the NBA, according to Michael Lee of The Athletic.

“It’s just basketball. I want to enjoy it. I think I’ve played better than expected. I’m happy about it, but this keeps going.”

Doncic has posted 19.6 points, 6.7 rebounds and 4.9 assists per game this season for Dallas.

Dallas Mavericks guard Tim Hardaway Jr. knows what it’s like to be traded as he was recently dealt, for the second time, from the New York Knicks to the Mavericks as part of the Kristaps Porzingis trade from a few weeks back.

“Yeah, it’s mind-blowing and it’s kind of weird when you go back to a team and they trade you again” Hardaway said, according to the New York Daily News’ Stefan Bondy.

“So it’s weird but at the same time you have to move forward.”

Hardaway was draft by the Knicks back in 2013, and was traded to the Atlanta Hawks in 2015, but would return to the Knicks in 2017 via a four-year, $71 million deal.

Hardaway remained on the Knicks until the aforementioned trade went down, sending him packing yet again.

As he winds down his career, Dallas Mavericks legend, and future Hall of Famer, Dirk Nowitzki is seeing the appreciation for his career demonstrated throughout this season.

Still, despite the opinion of others, Nowitzki doesn’t consider himself the greatest international NBA player in league history.

“I would never say that myself” Nowtizki said, according to Dwain Price of Mavs.com.

“There are so many great players that I respect, starting with (Detlef) Schrempf, obviously who is German, (Toni) Kukoc and (Drazen) Petrovic, who obviously his career got cut so short, unfortunately. (Vlade) Divac. There’s too many to mention – players that I respected kind of. . .paved the wave the way for me. And if I helped change the game in a way or helped some Europeans down the line, then that’s obviously an honor and that’s great.”

Mavericks’ Luka Doncic Explains Difference in Scoring in NBA and Europe

Published

Dallas Mavericks rookie sensation Luka Doncic recently sat down with NBA TV and discussed the differences between scoring in the NBA versus scoring in the EuroLeague.

Doncic claims it is easier to score in the NBA as opposed to Europe, which isn’t hard to believe considering the NBA’s lack of defense, and officiating favored, seemingly, towards the offensive side of the ball.
