|So serious question. What if Doncic really is one of the greatest players in NBA history?
There are no words to describe what he's done through the first 19 games. Even the most optimistic Mavs fan has to be astonished.
Even Dirk said he expected Luka to face some adversity as teams focus on stopping him. Turns out, the attention has just made him better.
Cuban is giddy. Teammates sound awe inspired. He's being compared to legends of the game by Hall of Fame coaches. He's having the best season for a 20 year old in history and it's not even close.
No one could have expected this. Surely not Carlisle or even Donnie.
So, how does this change things? IMHO
The Mavs BT went into the offseason looking for a dynamic playmaker to ride shotgun. Kemba Walker was the main target, along with some defensive help and shooting.
Well Kemba didn't work out .... so the Mavs put the ball in Doncic's hands ... and that IS working out. Mavs now boast the best offense in NBA history.
I'll argue that Doncic has risen so quickly that the Mavs are Championship contenders and this will certainly change how the BT approaches additions to the roster and trade deadline.
Gentlemen and women, we are now in win now mode.
The Mavs can play with any team in the league and win on any given night.
Now the focus shifts to matchups versus the big dogs. All trade options are on the table. Future assets be damned. We don't need picks. Think we need a versatile wing to defend Kawhi? It's time to go get one. Think we need a bruiser to bang with Harrell? Go get one.
We need players who are ready to go win an NBA title. The time is now.
