Luka Doncic 21 Points/8 Assists Full Highlights (2/11/2019)

Luka Doncic has taken the next step in his evolution as a basketball player. Most players, they never take this step, and if they do, it takes them several years of NBA experience before taking it. The step I’m talking about is the “put up good numbers while having a not-so-good game” step. This is…

“Hey Dave.” Dave, one of the Dallas Mavericks’ lead nutritionists and the formulator of all the players’ individualized meal plans, looked up from his computer to see Luka Doncic standing in front of his desk. “Hey Luka. It’s cool that a star like you can lower yourself to associate with us commoners,” he joked. “I…

Luka Doncic Triple Double 19 Pts/10 Rebs/11 Asts Full Highlights (2/6/2019)

It did cross my mind that I needed to punish Luka Doncic for going 5-of-20 from the field in this game. Not only did it cross my mind, but it stayed on my mind, and I dwelled on it for some time. I even withdrew into my little-used “highlights hermitage”, which is located high up…

Luka Doncic paced impatiently in the hallway in front of the locker room door. The team bus was going to leave for the airport soon, but his food delivery from GrubHub hadn’t arrived yet. After checking the time on his phone for the tenth time in the past five minutes, he glanced up and saw…

Luka Doncic Triple Double 35 Pts/12 Rebs/10 Asts Full Highlights (1/27/2019)

The mood in the locker room was subdued after the loss.

“What did you say this place was called again?” Luka asked, looking around curiously at the restaurant’s decor, which seemed like it had been ripped straight out of the 90’s. He shifted his legs uncomfortably in the too-small plastic booth, then decided to prop them up on the seat opposite him for maximum comfort. “Taco…

Luka Doncic Triple Double 18 Pts/11 Rebs/10 Asts Full Highlights (1/21/2019)

Luka Doncic is now the second-youngest player in NBA history to record a triple-double. He is 10 days older at the time of the triple-double than Markelle Fultz was. Now, I’m just saying, if Thon Maker can pretend to be like three or four full years younger than he actually is, it shouldn’t be too…

Luka Doncic 25 Points/8 Assists Full Highlights (1/16/2019)

This game marks a very important milestone for Luka “Lukadris” Doncic. No, not that he became the first rookie since Steph Curry to score 25 points in five consecutive games, although that is a fun and cool stat (one could even call it a “fun fact”). No, the real milestone is that Doncic had a…

Luka Doncic 26 Points/5 Assists Full Highlights (1/13/2019)

I watched much of this game live, which is a change of pace for me, given that I form most of my opinions on NBA basketball by looking at box-scores and making up stuff that sounds good in my head.

“Come find me, Luka,” Dirk Nowitzki whispered into Luka Doncic’s ear as Luka patiently answered questions from the flock of reporters that surrounded his locker. “After these guys leave.” Luka subtly nodded to let Dirk know he understood, and as Dirk retreated to his own locker to answer comparatively fewer questions, Luka wondered what Dirk…
