As we continue with our string of off-season podcasts with basketball writers and thinkers, both from Mavs Moneyball and elsewhere, on Thursday I was joined by Iztok Franko.

In this episode, we talk about his recent article on Luka Doncic’s quest for a Most Valuable Player award and what he needs to do to get there. Consider it recommended reading. We get into some of what drew him to this topic as well as what stood out in the data while he was preparing his argument. The conversation drifts in and out of being Luka-centric, talking about the team’s pace, Doncic’s shooting, turnovers, Rick Carlisle, and more. I can’t wait to have him on again during the regular season.
