Luka Doncic and Dirk Nowitzki

Luka Doncic is one of the best young players in the league, and the game comes to him with ease. Luka Doncic is an offensive engine that can uplift an entire roster, and he has a unique combination of size, playmaking, and scoring that has made him a superstar in the NBA.

There is a chance that Luka Doncic will be a Dallas Mavericks legend in the future, and follow in the footsteps of another NBA legend who came from Europe, Dirk Nowitzki. Perhaps he could even surpass Nowitzki, and Nowitzki seems to believe that may be the case. Nowitzki has recently revealed his belief that Luka Doncic is already better than he ever was.

While it may take Luka Doncic some time to rack up the accolades in the NBA, he has certainly shown the world his talent and is viewed as a top-10 player in the league by many. Dirk Nowitzki notably brought the Dallas Mavericks a championship during the 2010-2011 season, as the lone superstar on his roster. While Luka Doncic hasn't gotten that deep in the playoffs thus far, his talent suggests that if he was given a good roster, he could do it. Luka Doncic is clearly a future face of the NBA, and perhaps he'll reach the same legend status as Nowitzki in the future.
