Dallas Mavericks Luca Doncic received the honor of his former league, as the Point Guard Mavs were called Euroleague’s multi-racial team in the 2010-2020 Tuesday.
No other player has achieved as many results in such a short time and at such a young age as the last player to be declared a full member of the Euroleague in 2010-20!

Doncic has expressed his gratitude for the prize by tweeting the clip with some of his best moments with Real Madrid.

However, Luca Doncic’s latest award has received mixed reviews, as he only played three seasons before being included in the NBA draft in 2018 and then sold to Mavs.
Doncic is truly one of the most talented newcomers ever to the NBA, and all the prizes speak for themselves. In just three seasons with Real Madrid, the 1.80m player has become a single Euroleague champion (2018), a single MVP (2018), the last four MVPs in the Euroleague (2018), the first team in the Euroleague (2018) and a double Rising Star in the Euroleague (2017, 2018).
Doncic, who was only 18 years abroad last season, scored an average of 16 points, 4.85 rebounds and 4.3 assists in 33 Euroleague matches. He has been considered a basketball champion from day one and even made his debut in the oldest category in Slovenia in 2016, when he was only 17 years old.
The days of the Euroleague Mavs security forces are over. Doncic has been storming the competition since he was a rookie and now he has taken a big step towards becoming a superstar.
Before the NBA was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic, it averaged nearly three times the score – 28.7 points, 9.3 rebounds, 8.7 assists and 1.1 steals.
