The Dallas Mavericks have the best young player in the entire NBA in Luka Doncic. He’s going to be a legit MVP candidate this season as he looks to carry the Mavericks to the playoffs for the second straight season.
We broke down the Mavericks’ depth chart for the 2020-21 season below. We’ve also previously published a summary of the Mavericks’ offseason.
- Can the Mavericks stop anyone on defense? Last season, they had the most efficient offense in NBA history but were among the league’s worst defensively. If they can be a mediocre defensive team, they could be looking at a top-four seed in the Western Conference.
- Is Kristaps Porzingis going to be healthy on a consistent basis? To this point in his career, his knees have been an issue. In fact, they kept him out of some of the most crucial games in the playoffs last season. Without a healthy Porzingis, the Mavericks aren’t nearly as much of a threat.
