If there’s one thing I know it’s that numbers do not lie. Look at this, from the premier public basketball statistics website on the internet, Basketball Reference:
Luka Doncic is averaging 20.4 PPG, 6.4 RPG, and 4.0 APG this season.— Basketball Reference (@bball_ref) October 30, 2018
The last rookie to do that was...oh pic.twitter.com/GbkIGTipM7
What’s that? You can’t read the list of names of rookies to average 20 points, six assists, and four rebounds? Here, I’ll make it bigger for you:
Michael Jordan. Larry Bird. Sidney Wicks, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Oscar Robertson, and Elgin Baylor all averaged 20-6-4 as rookies. Pretty good company for Luka to join. But wait, we’ve got more Luka facts to help explain to both your friends and enemies that Luka Doncic is the best rookie of all time.

Thru 7 gms, Luka Doncic has 143 PTS, 45 REB, 28 AST & 6 STL. No one in NBA history hit all those in their 1st 7 gms.
Drop the qualifiers to 135, 35, 20 & 5, and you get the following: MJ, Terry Cummings, Grant Hill, Walter Davis, Magic & Odom.https://t.co/Wrg54nczVG
THAT’S RIGHT. LUKA IS PUTTING UP HISTORICAL NUMBERS. 143 points! 45 rebounds! 28 assists! Single digit steals! My smart friend Andy Bailey assures me no one else has done this through seven games in the history of ever!
There’s no other way to look at things. Revel in this, Mavericks fans. The future is now.
