Luka Doncic, at 20 years old, is an NBA All-Star starter. He becomes the third player in Mavs franchise history to be named an All-Star starter, joining Dirk Nowitzki and Jason Kidd.
“I used to wake up 3, 4 in the morning and watch it. Now I’m here. It’s just a blessing. I never really thought I would be here, but it’s a dream come true.” Luka said after the results were anounced. Just as the incredible numbers keep rolling in for Luka, so do the honors, as he’s the youngest All-Star starter since 2005, when LeBron James was voted in.

The All-Star Game is Feb. 16 at the United Center in Chicago.
