NBA analysis: Luka Doncic needs to learn to wait to win

Michael Jordan It took seven seasons to win its first title. Lebron James It took nine seasons and two useless trips to the NBA Finals before becoming champion. Shaquille O’Neal was swept in his first final. And the newly crowned champion Boston Celtics lost in the finals in 2022 and lost in the Eastern Conference Finals last year before breaking through.

The lesson, as everyone knows: winning the jackpot almost always takes time. Not always. But usually.

That is the reality of Luka Doncic. At 25 years old, he is already one of the best players in the world, if not the best of the group. But he is not a champion. Still.

The wait for their first championship will now extend to at least 2025, which shouldn’t be all that surprising. Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks They were not a logical opponent in this series against the Celtics; one was a 50-win team that caught fire at the end of the regular season, the other was a 64-win team that was better than everyone from the start. Insiders said Dallas would fall in these finals, and that’s what happened. It ended Monday night in Boston, with the Celtics winning 106-88, an 18-point margin to win their NBA-record 18th title.
