Doncic has been out with an ankle injury but is averaging 28.8 points per game for Dallas this season. He has made quick work of his opponents on numerous occasions, and even put up a historic performance in a single quarter earlier this year.
When your name is cited as the benchmark for dominance, you know you’ve made it.
