Luka Doncic Makes NBA History as the League’s Leading Scorer

Luka Doncic is the NBA’s leading scorer. The Slovenian becomes the first European player to achieve the feat and wins the award ahead of Joel Embiid, who has achieved 34.7 but has not been able to count enough games to qualify for the award (58, stipulated in the last agreement and 65 to qualify for the MVP) after his meniscus injury to put himself ahead of Doncic. In his sixth year of the NBA, Luka has scored more points than Michael Jordan (33.6) and LeBron James (28.4) in the same situation.

The Slovenian is an icon in world basketball and is eligible to win the next MVP of the season as he is one of the top contenders for it along with Nikola Jokic and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander. And it seems that on an individual level he couldn’t do better. As for his team, the Mavericks have finished fifth in the standings and will play the first round against the Clippers, a great feat that Doncic has achieved accompanied by Kyrie Irving, statistically far from his teammate but key in the same way.

The Slovenian has not only managed to be the top scorer, but has also finished in second position in assists: 9.8 followed by Jokic, a Serbian player, who finished third: 9.0. Both behind Tyrese Haliburton, who finished with 10.9. They have not been the only Europeans to have finished at the top of some of the main statistical categories: Sabonis occupies first place as the top rebounder: 13.7, followed by Gobert, second with 12.9. Also in the blocks there is a European in first place, Víctor Wembanyama, the French player for the Spurs who concludes the season with a figure of 3.6 per game.

Doncic is considered one of the best passers and rebounders in the North American League. The player stands out for his versatility on the field and his contribution to the Texas team is fundamental in the competition. Luka has a 48.7% field goal percentage and in six years he has 11,440 points. His average is 3887 shots in 8257 attempts. A legend that has no roof.
