These are just what the numbers say people

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:

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.

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.
