Despite playing just 42 career games so far, Luka Doncic has already proven he's a special talent. In fact, Doncic has even received more All-Star votes than future Hall-of-Famers Steph Curry and Kevin Durant.

Kevin Durant didn’t explicitly say it, but he is clearly not pleased with Luka Doncic being ahead of him in the All-Star voting... (which is very understandable) pic.twitter.com/ZXsYq4lSDU— Drew Shiller (@DrewShiller) January 14, 2019
While Luka's season has hardly flown under the radar, the rookie's unparalleled play in crunch time hasn't received nearly enough attention.
In fact, Luka is shooting 57 percent in clutch situations this season, which ranks second in the entire NBA. And, stop me if you've heard this before, he's only 19-years-old.
Top 5 Leaders in clutch FG%— Hoop Central (@TheHoopCentral) January 14, 2019
Victor Oladipo - 63.2%
Luka Doncic - 57.1%
Nikola Jokic - 53.5%
Bradley Beal - 52.0%
Evan Fournier - 51.4%
While these numbers are certainly impressive, it should be noted that Luka has displayed this leadership ability for years. After all, he became the youngest player ever to win the EuroLeague MVP this summer, and he was the best player on a Real Madrid team that won the title in Spain's top league last season.
