Congratulations to Luka Doncic as he Celebrates his Birthday today

In the midst of an incredible season, Mavs star Luka Doncic celebrated his 25th birthday with a game against the Toronto Raptors.

TORONTO: As part of a four-game road trip, Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic celebrated his 25th birthday with a game against the Toronto Raptors.


When asked about celebrating his birthday, Doncic—who finished with 45 points, 14 assists, and nine rebounds—joked that he’s getting old after the Mavericks’ 121-119 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday.


“No, my age is increasing. I’ll require further care tomorrow. Playing hoops is fun for me,” Doncic remarked.


Even though Max Strus’ 59-foot jumper at the buzzer caused the Mavs to lose badly, Doncic said the squad needed to remain focused because they had a back-to-back game against the Raptors the next night.



“Obviously, this one’s tough to swallow, but we got a game tomorrow, and I’m enjoying playing basketball,” Doncic stated.


Doncic has one of the greatest NBA career starts in history thanks to his achievements before turning 25. He has already been selected to four All-NBA First Teams. Not only was he the youngest player to receive at least four of these nominations in his first four seasons, but he was also the only player to do so, along with Tim Duncan, George Gervin, and Larry Bird.



Doncic had averaging 34.5 points, 9.6 assists, and 8.8 rebounds through 50 games this season going into Wednesday’s contest. He trails only LeBron James (13,927) and Kevin Durant (12,258) most points scored before turning 25 with 10,825. But before he was 25, Doncic had the most 3-pointers made (1,114).

The superstar from Slovenia is ranked second among players under 25 in terms of triple-doubles (66), and he is also ranked second in terms of triple-doubles at 20 points (61), 30 points (38), and 40 points (eight).



The only players to score 60 points or more in several games before turning 25 are Doncic and Michael Jordan. The only player to record a 50-point triple-double before turning 25 is Doncic.
