Why The Dallas Mavericks Do The Deal

The Dallas Mavericks do this deal because a healthy Kyrie Irving would pair with Luka Doncic to give them the most talented backcourt in the NBA.

They could surely use some playmaking talent alongside the star Slovenian. The team has become synonymous with the term “heliocentric offense” over the past few years. That means their attack begins and ends with Doncic on the ball.

It’s an approach that can rack up numbers and regular-season wins. It’s not one that’s resulted in a lot of NBA championships. Having more than one player who can generate his own offense makes a team’s strategy less predictable.

It’s easy to envision the fit between Kyrie Irving and Luka Doncic. Realistically, it’s a very similar fit to the one the Nets envisioned between Irving and Harden. Doncic would be the primary playmaker, while Irving would mainly focus on scoring. Suddenly, this Mavericks team could attack you in a variety of ways.
