Luke Doncic, to no one's surprise, is having another stellar season early on. He came into the 2022-23 season as the betting favorite to win the MVP, and some could even make the argument that the 23-year-old Slovenian star is already the best player in the NBA.

Luka is actually off to a historical start to this season, one even maybe his most devout backers could not predict — scoring 30-plus points in each of his six games, which culminated in a 44-point performance on Sunday.

The last player to start a season with six games of 30-plus points? None other than the GOAT himself, Michael Jordan.

Anytime you are mentioned in even the same breathe as Michael Jordan it's an accomplishment, and when you're mentioned alongside him in a scoring category? That's surely one to hang on your fridge.

Despite Doncic's amazing play, Giannis Antetokounmpo actually now leads the way in MVP odds at +320, although Luka is right there on his heels at +330, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest odds.
