The Dallas Mavericks are a flawed team in desperate need of some reinforcements.
However, Luka Doncic won’t just sit around and wait until Mark Cuban and the front office sort things out and get him some much-needed help.
He’ll take matters into his own hands and try and lead his team to success, no matter what he needs to do or how absurd his stats need to look to get the win.
While that may not be sustainable in the playoffs or a winning formula by any means, that has definitely helped his case as one of the best players in the league and one of the greatest talents to ever lace them up.
As a matter of fact, Doncic has recently joined Michael Jordan in yet another club, becoming the first player aged 23 years old or younger to average at least 40 points over a 10-game span since His Airness pulled it off in 1986.

Jordan also struggled to lead his team the distance during his earlier days in the league.
The Mavericks weren’t as bad as the Chicago Bulls used to be when Jordan arrived, but it also took him to some time to get past the toughest rivals in the Western Conference to reach the NBA Finals.
So, hopefully, the Mavs will one day surround Doncic with the supporting cast he needs to thrive.
He’s on pace to have a historical career already, and he might as well enter Mt. Rushmore territory if the team actually gives him a helping hand.
