The Mavericks struck gold when they got Dirk Nowitzi. Its very rare to keep a hall of fame talent on your team from the start to finish of their career. And since he is in the twilight of said career, great as he has always been, the Mavericks around him have been seriously lacking in star power.
Until the 2018 draft. The Mavs land Luka Doncic with the 3rd overall selection and even as a rookie he looks ever bit the part to be able to handily fill Dirk's massive shoes when he leaves. It's also interesting to note that the Mavs are basically handing over the reigns from one European superstar to another.
Do you think I'm right that the Mavs finally have a true superstar replacement for Dirk, or is it too early to tell simply because its just his rookie year? I think this conversation/debate will be had and brought up for years to come..
Here's a good vid of ESPN heaping praise on the guy:
