Luka Doncic NBA MVP Odds
Note: This snippet is from Matt Moore’s larger MVP piece. See his analysis for all major candidate here. Odds as of Thursday, October 17.
I am not a Mavs believer. I don’t think they’ll be anywhere close to .500, let alone the 50-plus wins you’re going to need for him to be in serious consideration.
I have him here because he’s a popular player on a team getting a lot of buzz. He’s a complete player, in that he passes, scores, shoots, rebounds … he does everything offensively.
If Kristaps Porzingis unlocks everything and the Mavericks just shockingly rattle through everything on pace to 50-plus wins, Doncic is going to be in the discussion.
But a defensively-limited player who struggled after the trades of veterans last season on a team I don’t think finishes .500? I’m out.
