The Dallas Mavericks can brag about having an elite building block for their future.
Even if the Kyrie Irving experiment doesn’t play out, they will still have Luka Doncic to build their team around, and that’s more than enough to be considered a dark horse playoff team year in and year out.
Doncic is one of the most unique and talented players in the history of the game, and his never-ending bag of moves and tricks just keeps getting bigger.
That was evident in a clip shared by All Things Mavs (via ClutchPoints) that showed him knocking down an epic trick shot during practice with Team Slovenia.

Doncic has found success in every single place he’s gone.
He thrived at Real Madrid and proved that he was more than ready to take his talents to the U.S., regardless of what the doubters said at the time.
Then, he took his national team to new heights, and it seems like they will always have a legit shot to take down one of the biggest powerhouses in European basketball just because he’s on the court.
Even so, some believe the clock is starting to tick on him in the NBA.
He’s been too good for too long but has no awards or silverware whatsoever to show for it, and some believe he complains way too much.
He’s in the best shape of his career, though, and that’s terrible news for the rest of the league, so don’t sleep on him next season.NEXT: Stephen A. Smith Opens Up On Feud With Kyrie Irving
