Luka Doncic gained a lot of attention from NBA scouts during his time overseas

Doncic began his professional career in 2015 when he made his debut for Real Madrid. He was 16 years old when he made his debut and became the youngest player ever to play for Real Madrid in the ACB.
During his time playing overseas, he transitioned from a young 16-year-old player to one of the top players overseas. In 2018 he won the EuroLeague MVP award after averaging 16 points, 4.9 rebounds, and 4.3 assists per game over 33 EuroLeague games. The NBA quickly took notice of Doncic and saw the potential he had at a young age. In March of 2020, he was selected to the 2010-20 EuroLeague All-Decade Team.
After an impressive overseas career, Doncic joined the NBA in 2018. There was a lot of hype surrounding Doncic, and people were eager to see how he would perform against NBA players. Doncic was ready for the challenge, and he did not disappoint.
Luka Doncic made sure the NBA knew who he was during his rookie year
Doncic did not waste any time making a name for himself during his rookie season. He immediately became one of the top players on the Dallas Mavericks. During his rookie season, he showed how talented he was on the court. He could shoot, pass, dribble, and drive to the lane and finish with contact. There wasn’t anything he couldn’t do, and he quickly became a fan favorite across the league.
During his rookie season, he became the youngest player in NBA history to record three triple-doubles. He finished the season with eight triple-doubles, which was fourth in the league.
