4. Luka Doncic

Despite being only 24 years old, Luka Doncic already has four All-Star selections under his belt. Since 2020, he has never missed out on that or the All-NBA First Team, and unsurprisingly, his name has to be in the conversation once again. 

Averaging 32.7 points, 8.3 rebounds, 9.1 assists, and 1.3 steals, he is constantly flirting with a triple-double. He ranks second in the league in scoring behind only the reigning MVP Joel Embiid, third in minutes per game, first in field goal attempts, and fourth in assists. 

Those are All-Star numbers, and to top that off, the Mavericks are also winning with a 16-9 record. Doncic leads the team in points per game, rebounds, assists, and steals—every major category except for blocks. 

After they gave up pretty much all the defense they had to trade for Kyrie Irving last season and then missed the playoffs, it seemed that the Mavericks were not in a great position to compete in the West. So far, it has been going well, though, and Doncic is the engine behind their success. 

As a team, the Mavericks average the sixth-most points in the NBA at 199.9. They still struggle to guard opponents, but that number is often hard to beart, and it is not unlikely that they will have an All-Star to go with their winning record.
