NBA Official Who Remains Unnamed Claims Luka Doncic Doesn’t Promote Team Growth for Dallas Mavericks

As Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks face the Oklahoma City Thunder in a 7-game series, a recent anonymous report has surfaced that questions Doncic’s leadership skills. To the few who may not know, Luka is the franchise star for the Mavericks and is the biggest reason the team has established itself as a postseason contender in recent times.

Although Doncic is one of the best players in the league and a front-runner to win the MVP award this season, he has also been subject to a fair amount of criticism. While the official who was the source of the report did not clarify his identity, a closer look at his thoughts on Luka may interest fans.

An assistant coach believes the Mavericks feel at ease when Luka Doncic is not on the court

An unnamed assistant coach from any potential team in the league just sent out a report indicating that members of the Dallas Mavericks feel comfortable with Luka Doncic temporarily exiting the game and heading to the bench. This implies that there are certain aspects or characteristics about Doncic that his teammates do not find attractive.

“There’s a sense of, ‘Hey, now we can play.’ It’s hard to have any rhythm if you don’t touch the ball.”

While Luka is certainly the best player on his team, there’s no denying that his high usage rate prevents others from his squad from getting into a sense of momentum. However, it is also important to remember that Luka also knows how to facilitate teammates and is a capable playmaker when he is not scoring.

Therefore, it would be unfair to claim that the Mavs are unable to play when he is not on the court. If this report is to be taken as legitimate, the members of the Mavericks would have to ask themselves where they would be if they didn’t have Luka on their team.

Where would the Dallas Mavericks be without Luka Doncic on their roster?

It’s pretty hard to create a hypothetical world in which Luka wasn’t on the Dallas Mavericks. Be that as it may, it would be easy to claim that they would have been play-in-team at best had Luka never joined the Mavericks. Even if the team had Trae Young, it is highly unlikely that they would have done as well in a more competitive Western Conference.

In any case, fans are left free to decide if they agree with this anonymous trainer for themselves. While Luka may need the ball in his hands, he is much better compared to the other members of his squad. Therefore, one can certainly understand why there is a mix of emotions when he leaves the court.
