Former NBA player and coach Sam Mitchell has boldly declared that Luka Doncic currently holds the title of the best player in the NBA.

During a segment on SiriusXM NBA Radio, Mitchell emphatically praised Doncic’s performance, highlighting his impact on the court.

“Luka Doncic, the way he’s played, he’s the best player in the league right now,” Mitchell said on SiriusXM NBA Radio.

Mitchell asked Brian Geltzeiler who would get his MVP vote if the voting was re-cast based on playoff performance. Geltzeiler’s pick was Doncic, who finished third in this year’s MVP voting behind Nikola Jokic and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander.

Despite finishing third in this year’s MVP race, Doncic’s postseason heroics have been nothing short of spectacular.

Averaging nearly a triple-double with 28.8 points, 9.6 rebounds, and 8.8 assists per game, Doncic has been the driving force behind the Dallas Mavericks’ remarkable journey to the NBA Finals.

Under his leadership, the Mavericks have defied expectations, securing their first Finals appearance in over a decade.

In addition, Doncic leads the playoffs in multiple key statistical categories, such as points, rebounds, assists, steals, triple-doubles, double-doubles, three-pointers, field goals, free-throws, clutch assists and game-winners, as observed by Basketball Forever.
