From a German to a Slovenian, the scepter of the strongest player in the history of Dallas Mavericks it remains an entirely European question. A handover that, according to what he said Dirk Nowitzki, has already happened.
The blond from Würzburg in fact, on the eve of Race 7 of the series against the Los Angeles Clippers, interviewed by TMZ Sports, when asked if and when Luka Doncic he would have overtaken him in the ranking of the strongest Mavs ever, he replied candidly “He already did”.
A strong statement, given that unlike him, at the moment, Doncic has not yet won the ring with Dallas. But that, looking at personal statistics, it can easily be. In his 21 years in Texas, Nowitzki averaged 20.7 points, 7.5 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game against the Slovenian’s 25.7 points, 8.4 rebounds and 7.7 assists per game.
Doncic’s champion of seasons played is still too small compared to Wünder Dirk’s, but the start was not bad. To evaluate the continuity over the years, to understand if the GOAT title of the Mavs can pass from a German to a Slovenian.
