Dirk Nowitzki Talks Development of Luka Doncic

Dallas Mavericks superstar Luka Doncic continues to tear up the league each season, and has improved since the Mavericks drafted him, with a big jump in his play this season by leading the Mavericks to the Western Conference Finals.

Mavericks legend Dirk Nowitzki recently spoke about how Doncic’s development has gone, noting how quickly the young star has taken to the NBA game.

“Usually guys come in and they are raw and develop, and with experience and hard work they just take that next level,” Nowitzki said, according to Eurohoops. “But to me, the way he already reads the game and makes decisions, off the pick-and-roll, when to pass and when to shoot. He is already playing like a 30-year-old. I have been super impressed. From day one, he came in just reading the game, his basketball IQ is just on another level.”

Doncic will be looking to put in another MVP-level performance this season as the Mavericks look to build on their success.
