Luka Doncic is an absolutely transcendent talent. 


During the NBA Draft process, many draft 'experts' worried that even though Doncic had been a success in the Euroleague, his game wouldn't translate over to the NBA. This caused him to drop to No. 3 overall and get traded from Atlanta to Dallas for Trae Young.


Well, it looks like everybody who was worried about that was just about as wrong as you can possibly beIn fact, Doncic could be on pace to finishing with the greatest rookie season of all time. 

Doncic completed his second career triple-double Sunday with an astonishing 35 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists in a 123-120 loss to the Toronto Raptors. This comes just two days after he had 32 points, eight rebounds and eight assists against the Detroit Pistons. He is truly putting up numbers we've never seen before. 

Doncic is also the first teenager to put up both a 20-point triple-double and a 30-point triple-double, further adding to his accolades. He's also insanely clutch when the game is on the line


Doncic appears to be the future of the NBA and even this year's NBA Rookie of the Year, and he should be a force for the Dallas Mavericks for years to come.

He still has a long way to go before being put in the same conversation as Lebron James and Kobe Bryant. But if his rookie year is any indication, he's going to do some special things in his career. And the Phoenix Suns, Sacramento Kings, and Hawks are likely going to be kicking themselves for passing on him.
