Michael Jordan, the eternal basketball emperor, praised Luca Doncic, who is spending his second year of his career.
Doncic, who made his debut in the NBA last year after calming the European stage, raised fans’ expectations by winning the Rookie of the Year award. In his second year, Doncic is even more likely to play MVP, surprising many.
With an average of 29.1 points and 9.6 rebounds this season, the Dallas Mavericks are playing a crucial role in taking the top spot in the Western Conference. Doncic, who was recently sidelined due to injury, returned to the San Antonio Spurs match on Wednesday to contribute to his team’s victory.
With his sensational performance continuing, Donchich has even signed a contract with Jordan Brand. While Puma, Under Armor and New Balance have tried to join hands with the NBA’s next-generation stars, Doncic’s choice was Jordan, Nike’s subsidiary.
“It’s an honor to be part of the Jordan family,” Doncic, who signed an official contract with Jordan on Wednesday, said in a video. The players with Jordan are all world classes. I look forward to leaving my mark in the future of the brand,” he said.
Jordan also lavished praise on Doncic. Jordan said, “Doncic is a truly phenomenal player at that age. They have the skills that others need to develop over the years. Watching Doncic develop in the league would be really huge. We all welcome the Jordanian family’s money-making process,” he said, expressing his expectations for the Doncic.
