Mavericks’ Luka Doncic, Kristaps Porzingis could be an ‘all-time’ dynamic duo
Terry, who also played for the Mavericks and won a title, believes that Doncic and Porzingis’ asset is their youth. As such, they can still learn so much and get better as teammates. Speaking on the Dennis and Cowlishaw show on ESPN Dallas 103.3 [KESN-FM], Terry said:
“They’re still headed down as one of the all-time dynamic duos in the history of the game, if they continue to win and then have success in the playoffs, and hopefully take us to another NBA finals and win a championship. Because they’re so young. When you have two young stars as KP and Luka, and the talent that they possess, they have yet to really reach their full potential and I think the chemistry that they’ve gained this season by playing together is going to continue to grow,” as transcribed by The Dallas Morning News.
Terry also claimed that both Porzingis and Doncic are at the point in their careers where they’re learning more about their own game in relation to one another.
“KP is learning that ‘hey maybe it might not be at the four position, maybe at the five position where I can be most dangerous and effective.’ Luka is also understanding ‘hey I might not have to take over an entire ball game, I can kind of conserve my energy and be the closer very similar to what Dirk [Nowitzki] was and kind of let KP get off early in games.
All in all, Terry believes it’s a good time to be a Mavs fan today and in the coming years.
