Doncic had a phenomenal rookie season. But like all neophytes, he was somewhat up and down in terms of his level of play. So far in his sophomore campaign, Luka looks to have figured things out and has become the definition of consistency.

There really is no ceiling for this kid, and he continues to defy expectations night in and night out.
