Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving encountered obstacles in their collaboration in the prior season, however, Doncic remains optimistic about the upcoming year.

While teaming up on the court, the duo managed to secure a 5-11 record post Irving’s transition to Dallas in February.

Doncic is certain that an entire season, encompassing a training camp, will bring about significant enhancements in their bond.

Expressing his convictions, Doncic mentioned post-Wednesday’s morning practice, “There will certainly be an improvement. He came on board midway through last year, so our time was limited. We immediately delved into gameplays. Establishing a strong connection requires time, particularly within the game itself. We missed out on a full training camp or preseason. That’s why I anticipate a much smoother ride this time around.”

Mavericks’ head honcho Jason Kidd mirrored similar sentiments and underlined the essence of time in fostering the rapport between Doncic and Irving.

“Often, we desire instant outcomes, yet we will persist in nurturing that rapport,” Kidd elucidated. “There’s already a connection, and now, post-summer and preseason interactions, they’ve had the chance to solidify their camaraderie. It’s vital to ponder, not if they can coexist, but how the team around them fits. Occasionally, our perceptions may be askew. If they are surrounded by the right components, they will harmonize. And right from day one, they harmonized at a remarkable level.”

Unquestionably, the Mavericks are striving to elevate their 38-44 standing from the preceding season and advance beyond the regular phase.

The prior year marked the initial instance the Mavericks failed to qualify for the playoffs since Doncic’s debut season.
