Luka Doncic - performance discussion

We were all wrong about his scoring most of us thought 20ppg would be his prime he’s doing that in his rookie year
Agreed I think a lot of people (myself included) thought he would be more of a 15-17 PPG type of scorer but it certainly looks like averaging 20 PPG won't be a problem for him. With that said I don't anticipate him ever being a 25+ PPG scorer but that doesn't matter if he can get you 19-22 along with all the assists, rebounds, and running the offense that's all he needs to do.

Dallas still needs to get another big time scorer though because let's face it......Harrison Barnes basically sucks and Wes Matthews really sucks. Neither is a "winning" player. I thought Barnes possibly was going to be a few years ago but he just doesn't have it. He's fine as a role-player but he should not be a Top-3 option. Matthews literally does nothing well besides score and he really doesn't do that all that well these days either.
 
DJ does not let anyone else rebound ("I got it!!! Get out of here!!") so his rebounding numbers might suffer. :).
So, you feel the need to preemptively qualify his rebounding numbers?
even I did not think it would be like this!

Don't be deceived by DeAndre Jordan's solid statistics. He has been a major disappointment for the Mavs. He has rubbed teammates the wrong way with what they perceive as selfish play, the most blatant example being when he stole an uncontested rebound from Luka Doncic by putting his forearm in the prized rookie's back and tipping the ball away. Jordan's disinterest in playing help defense has been a big problem as Mavs opponents light up the scoreboard. -- MacMahon

I remember posting the video clip of that and some used it to attack Luka somehow. Lol

DJ has been outperformed in almost all his games this year
