As if written in stone Mavericks rookie Luka Doncic is one of three rookies to waiting to named Rookie of the Year. The TNT crew announced all NBA awards finalist before game 2 of Eastern Conference Finals. If Doncic wins the award, he will be the first Maverick to win since Jason Kidd shared the trophy in 1995.
Luka is one of the league’s rising stars thanks to all the things he can do on the court but how does he stack up against his compatriots? Of the three finalists, he played the second most game, 72. He led all rookies in minutes, points, field goal attempts, three-point attempts, free throws made and attempted per game, triple-doubles, and total fantasy points.

Where he falls short against the other finalist, Trae Young and DeAndre Ayton, are rebounds, total points scored, free throw percentage, assists, blocks, and wins.
The Mavericks rookie may have a leg up on the competition thanks to his media presence. He’s the heir to Dirk’s throne and Rookie of the Year crown would mark the beginning of his rule.
