Luka Doncic has been having an MVP-type season with the Dallas Mavericks this year. He has done it all for the team and has them red hot heading into the playoffs. There are very few people, if any, who can accomplish what he can do on the offensive side of the ball.

Former head coach Stan Van Gundy has seen and coached amazing players over the course of his career. When discussing some of the great offensive talent he has seen, Van Gundy called Doncic the greatest offensive player he has ever seen.

“I think the best offensive player now that I’ve ever seen is Luka Doncic”

Stan Van Gundy said on the Dan Le Batard Show

The 25-year-old superstar for the Mavericks is having a career year with the team. He is currently averaging 33.9 points, 9.2 rebounds, and 9.8 assists per game in 70 games played. As Van Gundy said, Doncic is able to impact the Mavs offense in every possible way.

Doncic is capable of scoring the ball from anywhere on the court. He is the engine that makes the Mavs run. By all accounts, he should be on track to win the first scoring title of his career this season.

“There is literally no one who can match up with him and when you bring a second defender, he can pick you apart.”

The Mavericks look to be one of the hottest teams heading into the NBA playoffs. With a 50-30 record, they will battle against the Los Angeles Clippers in the first round of the playoffs. While he may not win MVP this year, Doncic will have the opportunity to show the world that he is the best player in the NBA.
