Steve Nash calls Mavs’ Luka Doncic, Kristaps Porzingis ‘incredible difference-makers’
In a Q&A during the Dirk Nowitzki Pro Celebrity Tennis Tournament at SMU, Nash said that it’s an exciting time to be a Dallas fan. He pointed out that not only do the Mavs have two “difference-makers” in Doncic and Porzingis, but they also have talented players who understands what it takes to win and play in a team.
“I think it’s a super exciting time to be a Mavericks fan and to play and work for the Mavericks,” Steve Nash said. “You’ve got two players that are incredible difference-makers, if they can form a bond and a chemistry and an understanding. They both fit the modern game extremely well, you have some talented players around them as well, some role players that are happy with their role and they can exceed expectations at their role and not necessarily feel like they need more, which could kill a chemistry, kill a team and its chemistry.
“It’s going to be exciting to watch them develop together this year.”
The Mavs didn’t make a lot of noise in free agency, largely striking out of the big-name stars. However, they made some solid additions in Seth Curry, Boban Marjanovic and Delon Wright. The team also drafted a promising young big man in Isaiah Roby in the second round of the 2019 NBA Draft.
Dallas are one of the most exciting teams in the NBA in 2019-20, especially with Luka and Kristaps playing together for the first time. The Mavs are considered to be dark horse playoff contenders, and they will go as far as their Euro one-two punch can take them.
