Will Luka Doncic Win the NBA MVP Award This Season?

On the evening in which Luka Doncic celebrates (with a victory) his 400th game in the NBA – the only one together with Oscar Robertson to have collected at least 10,000 points, 3,000 rebounds and 3,000 assists in the first 400 NBA games – his Mavs teammates gave him they prepare a nice surprise and take to the field in the pre-match warm-up at the Kaseya Center with a special overshirt. It says “Pravi MVP” and to decipher the message you need a Slovenian dictionary: in Doncic’s language, in fact, “pravi” means “true”, and the message that Dallas wants to convey throughout America is that their n°77 deserves the award of best player of the NBA season. “We knew that this year would be special for him – said Kyrie Irving – because he stepped up as a leader, even vocally, challenging me first and every player on the team to give their best: and this is the sign of a true MVP . His statistics speak for him: he’s like a brother to me, and I want to see him win the MVP award – even though I know that winning, as a team, is his priority, what matters most to him.” “His resume is better than any other player’s,” adds PJ Washington. “I don’t think there is a player who can confidently say that he had a better season than Luka. Today he plays the best basketball on the planet: he is the MVP.”

Kyrie Irving: “If he doesn’t win this year, he will soon”

The Dallas coach is also convinced of this, Jason Kiddwho however sees a danger due to Doncic’s “too much” talent: “He makes things look too easyand this is what happens with some of the strongest of all time: we take his talent for granted”. To support these opinions there are obviously all the numbers you want: the ones you see Doncic best scorer in the NBA (con 33.9 points in the evening) or who see it in first place for points created per game (I am 57.3 every night), with a team record of 44 victories and 24 defeats with him on the pitch. Yet, say those in the know, it is difficult for the MVP award not to end up (yet) in the hands of Nikola Jokic. “If he doesn’t win it this year he will soon,” concludes Kyrie Irving. It’s hard to blame him.
