Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis have lit up the NBA this season. Conversely, their combination on the court is deadly and has left opponents reeling. Mark Cuban, the owner of Dallas Mavericks has stated that he is very pleased with the position of his team and the relationship between their star players.
Mark Cuban even went on to compare Doncic and Porzingis with Dirk Nowitzki and Jason Terry. The iconic duo was prolific for the Mavericks in the mid-2000s. Cuban said, “I’d compare it to Jet and Dirk. If you remember, when we first got Jet, Dirk was not a fan. Dirk did not like him. And we lost in a playoff series because Jet made a mistake against Nash and that just made it even worse.
Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis don’t hang out off the court, and they've had "dust-ups," says Mark Cuban.

He further continued, “They weren’t best friends at the beginning, but they grew to like each other and grew to be great friends and that’s just part of the process when you’ve got young kids who are growing up. It took forever before Dirk and Jet did anything off the court together. A long time. Yeah, I mean, KP and Luka get along fine. It’s just that they’re different people. They like to do different things.”
The Dallas Mavericks this season has relied on the star duo. While Luka Doncic has put in match-winning performances in almost every game, Porzingis has played a good supporting role to the 22-year-old.
The Mavs are sixth in the Western Conference standings. Following that, they are well in contention for the playoff spots, presently. Moreover, their star players have started to fire at the most opportune moment. Coach Rick Carlisle will be very confident with the position his team is ahead of the business end of the campaign.
