It was in June that the name Luka Dončić was first officially called in front of NBA fans.
In the 2018 NBA draft in New York, Luka Dončić was nominated for the Atlanta Hawks in the third round of the first round. However, it took less than a day for the logo on the head of Don Chichi to change from Hawk to Maverick. On the day of the draft, Luka Dončić wore a Dallas uniform with Traysley of the University of Oklahoma, who was ranked fifth in the rankings and rated "NextCurry." It was a trade experience with the NBA.
About half a year has passed since then. Now there are no NBA fans who do not know the name of Luka Dončić. It does not matter how he is named and how he gets the Dallas uniform. Now Luka Dončić is a rising star who has been attracted to NBA fans around the world.
Don Chichi's step back jump shot shared via Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube is hit like every day with Like. It may be a little unspectacular, but it may be that the NBA has finally come up with a new European icon to follow Dirk Nowitzki. Now, Luka Dončić is showing a strong performance.
It is often said that basketball is a sport that can not be explained by records alone. That's right. Basketball is not a sport with records. You can see the player's reality by watching the court-play with the record.
But Luka Dončić is already a rookie beyond the record. He averaged 18.2 points, 6.5 rebounds and 4.1 assists in the NBA's first 23 games. It is also a powerful shooter who shoots 2.3 points of 3 points per game with 38.4% probability. The season's batting average is down slightly to 43.6% due to the upsurge in the shooting, due to recent injuries. However, Luka Dončić is a powerful attack that can generate a goal at any time in a situation with a ball. Now Don Chichi is the ace and leader of Dallas' attack.
Luka Dončić's reign was revealed again in the Dallas Mavericks and Houston Rockets game on September 9. Luka Dončić scored 11 of his 21 points in the clutch time of the game. What is even more impressive is that the 11 points came in succession at the most important time of the game. It was his step-back jump shot, which was his trademark 11-point performance. Luka Dončić had a crossover dribble against Houston 's big - man Clint Capella, who had been trying to stop him with a switch, and overturned the game with a stunning step back three - point shot. The remaining time is only 57 seconds. In the end, Dallas retained the lead and won a thrilling victory against Texas rival Houston.
