1. Luka is spending unbelievable amount of energy creating on offense. Please let me remind you - historically most efficient offense. So all this "poor shot selection and inefficiency on offense" leads to most efficient offense. Are you really sure you are not overly critical and focus on trees instead of the whole forrest? Luka is taking tough threes. But he is taking them to keep defense honest, which gives him more room to drive - one inefficient shot leads to numerous efficient ones. I have never seen an opposing defense that would just dare Luka to shoot open threes.
2. Driving attack after attack is taking huge amounts of energy. I don't think there is any player that can endure this through whole season. Luka is not a problem. The problem is, that other Mavs players are just looking at him to do some magic without helping him a lot. I think it has become clear that all the demands are taking a toll on his performance. But he is not the one putting together the team or coaching it.
3. Spending this huge amounts of energy also results in less effort on defense.
4. I think you are way overly critical, speaking like Luka is a problem in Dallas. Yes, less effort on defense makes me angry too, but you have to take a look at the whole picture. He has made a huge jump in production from last season and greatly contributed to Mavs becoming a winning team. He lifted his performance so much that a line of 20-8-2 in an easy victory is considered as alarmingly bad performance. Yes, I agree he needs to become better and improve. However, it is obvious he is working on all aspects of the game. So far he only had one summer to improve.
