It didn’t take long for Dallas Mavericks guard Luka Doncic to assert himself as one of the NBA’s best players. After the Slovenian star took home the NBA Rookie of the Year a season ago, Cool Hand Luka is putting up Oscar Robertson-like numbers this season. Through 23 games, he’s averaging 30 points, 9.8 rebounds and 9.2 assists per game. The 20-year-old already holds the NBA record for the most triple-doubles by a player before his 21st birthday.
