Luka Doncic is an All-NBA First Team member for the 2019-20 season.

On Tuesday afternoon, the ESPN’s The Jump announced the various All-NBA teams from the 2019-20 season as voted on by a panel of credentialed NBA media members. He’s joined by Giannis Antetokounmpo, Lebron James, James Harden, and Anthony Davis on the first team.

Doncic is the third youngest player to earn All-NBA first team distinction and had the season ended on time he would’ve been the youngest player ever. He’s also first player to do so in his first or second season since Tim Duncan in the 1998-1999 season. Doncic is the first Dallas Maverick player to make any All-NBA team since Dirk Nowitzki in the 2011-12 season and the third Maverick ever, joining Dirk and Steve Nash.

Following his Rookie of the Year campaign last season, Doncic took a leap in 2019-20 where he averaged 28.8 points, 9.4 rebounds, and 8.8 assists. He came out of the gate on fire, earning NBA Conference Player of the Month in November when he averaged 30.6 points, 9.9 rebounds, and 9.6 assists as Dallas jumped to an early 13-6 record. Those early performances set the tone for a year where he’d win multiple accolades including his first All-Star game selection as a starter for the West.

He led the league in triple doubles with 17 and put up some truly wild statistical performances throughout the season. This is yet another honor for a player who is on a Hall of Fame career path. See the rest of the All-NBA teams below.
