In his second season as a Dallas Maverick, Luka Doncic let the world know just who he is. In just 1.1 more minutes per game, Doncic increased his points per game average by 7.5 points. He also increased his assist average by 2.7, and his rebound average by 1.5. These jumps were good enough for me to believe he had a case for the Most Improved Player award, but let’s be honest: Doncic should be considered as an MVP candidate.
No, I don’t think Doncic should win the award, but a finish outside of the top-five feels like a mistake. Doncic averaged 28.8 points per game, 9.4 rebounds per game and 8.8 rebounds per game. His team finished second to the last in their conference just last season. This year, his team finished seventh in the West and went to war with a far-better Los Angeles Clippers team in the playoffs..More on mavsmoneyball..
