Luka Doncic Should Be a Permanent Fixture on Your Fantasy Team

Everybody knew that Luka Doncic was going to be a great NBA player for years to come. However, what nobody could have predicted was just how quickly the young Slovenian would adapt to the NBA.

The third pick in the 2018 draft started playing regularly for the Dallas Mavericks at the end of October and hasn’t looked back. Doncic is currently on course to be the most successful European player who has recently joined the NBA and bookmakers already have him as the firm favourite to win the NBA Rookie of the Year award. We here are all on the Doncic bandwagon and if you are like us you can click over here to place a bet on the talented youngster and earn some money in the process.

Dallas Wanted Him for a Reason

Doncic was set to be the first pick of the 2018 NBA draft. He came from the second best basketball league in the world (the Euroleague) and also came from one of the most decorated basketball clubs in the world, Real Madrid. If that wasn’t enough, Doncic bossed the Euroleague in the 2017-2018 season and convincingly won the MVP award. About the only thing he can’t do is swing a golf club (see video below).

However, before the NBA draft for one reason or another concerns started creeping in regarding his NBA readiness. Many people claimed that Doncic wasn’t athletic enough and that he didn’t have enough stamina for the NBA.
This resulted in the Slovenian dropping down on draft day and the first pick turned out to be Arizona’s Deandre Ayton. Doncic didn’t get picked second, either (with Sacramento grabbing Marvin Bagley III), and was close to being left out of the top three when something amazing happened.

In a move that is set to become part of Mavericks’ history, Dallas saw the potential in Doncic and offered the Atlanta Hawks Trae Young (who the Mavs had taken fifth overall) and its 2019 first round pick in a bid to land Doncic, who Atlanta had taken with the third pick.

The Hawks agreed and the talented youngster became the player that Dallas will rebuild its franchise around. This should be enough of a reason for all Fantasy players who are having second thoughts regarding Doncic to include him on their teams. If Dallas went to such great lengths to acquire the Euroleague MVP, then you should do the same.

Stats Don’t Lie

If Dallas scouts are not enough for you to make up your mind and pick Doncic on your Fantasy team, then maybe his impressive stats will convince you.

Despite a recent skid, the 6’7″ forward is shooting over 43 per cent from the field and has hit an impressive 35.5 per cent of his shots from behind the three point line. He’s scoring 20.5 points per game and pitches in with almost seven boards and 5.4 assists per game.

Remarkably, Doncic is the first teenager in NBA history to put up more than one triple double in a season. He’s also the youngest player to record a triple-dub with at least 30 points. The previous record holder? Some dude named LeBron James. You may have heard of him.

Speaking of rare company, if you compare Doncic’s numbers to other all-time great rookie seasons, you can see that the only players to have had better numbers than the Slovenian are part of an elite group. This group includes players such as Michael Jordan (who actually averaged fewer boards), Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (who had fewer assists), Larry Bird (fewer assists) and Grant Hill (who had fewer points, boards and assists). That should convince you how good Doncic is and what kind of ceiling he has.

RotoRob Tune of the Day

English rockers Supertramp has been churning out masterpieces since 1969. In 1974, the band released its third album, Crime of the Century, which would prove to be its breakout effort commercially. The big hit on the album — at least in the U.K. — was “Dreamer.”

Now here’s a dude that hasn’t really gotten any Fantasy love, but with all the injuries in The Big Easy, Frazier is getting a chance to shine. He shook off an ankle woe and started Friday, putting up a dozen assists in the process. Frazier is solidifying his job on the Pelicans for next season while averaging nearly 15 points, 10 assists, 1.5 treys and two steals over the last five games.

The Wire Troll: J.J. Barea Torches It up in Dallas

January 2, 2016 | by Adrian Wallace | Comments Comments Off on The Wire Troll: J.J. Barea Torches It up in Dallas
Barea is 31 now, people, but you wouldn’t know that looking at his recent stats (no offense to the vets still going strong at the 30 year mark). He made his way into the starting lineup and has been torching since — especially beyond the arc (five treys on Wednesday). It’s hard to find a solid point guard who’s also a three-point shooting gem that’s available on the wire this deep into the season, so Barea needs to be picked up now without a doubt.

The Wire Troll: DeMarre Carroll Doing it All in Atlanta

February 1, 2014 | by Bob Raymond | Comments Comments Off on The Wire Troll: DeMarre Carroll Doing it All in Atlanta
Waiters was the fourth overall pick in the 2012 draft and is finally starting to show the offensive consistency that he hinted at in the Summer League. He has scored 21 points in each of his last two games, totaling five treys and four steals in the two games. Slowly but surely Waiters has improved his passing skills leading to increased assist totals.
