Luka Doncic is a unique kind of talent. He's been torching opposing defenses since the U-14 team back in Slovenia and became a bit of a living legend when he played for Real Madrid.
But even with his impressive résumé at such a tender age, a lot of people still doubted if Doncic had what it took to step up and dominate in the NBA.
Needless to say, the Dallas Mavericks young star silenced his critics in almost no time. He proved to be a generational talent and is already one of the faces of the league, taking his game even further in the playoffs.
And, even though he has yet to win a playoff series, he's still been more than impressive during his young career, giving the Los Angeles Clippers a lot of trouble over the past couple of years.
That's why Hall of Famer Charles Barkley jokingly said that Doncic was getting back for all the white folks that used to be scare to go to the hood in Los Angeles:
"Used to be white guys were scared to come to the hood, now they're coming to the hood and kicking your *ss," Barkley said.
Doncic torched the Clippers for 42 points, 7 rebounds, 9 assists in 3 steals in one game. He also had a 43-point, 17-rebound, 13-dimes performance in the same series, capping it off with 38 points, 9 boards, and 9 assists. Also, he became the youngest player to hit a buzzer-beater in NBA playoffs history.
Sadly, the Dallas Mavericks have yet to figure out the Los Angeles Clippers and as great as Doncic is, he just can't win on his own.
Hopefully, this will be the season when his teammates step up and help him carry the load to get his very first playoff series win once and for all.
