Dallas Mavericks guard Luka Doncic is just one of six players in NBA history to record at least 2,300 points, 600 rebounds, and 600 assists in a single season.

Michael Jordan leads the list with 2,633 points, 652 rebounds, and 650 assists in the 1988-89 season. Russell Westbrook is second with 2,558 points, 864 boards, and 840 dimes in 2016-17.

Per to a few NBA betting sites, Doncic holds third-best odds to win MVP this season. Sportsbooks are showing better odds for Nikola Jokic and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander.

Oscar Robertson holds the next two spots with 2,480 points, 783 rebounds, and 868 assists in 1963-64 and 2,432 points, 985 rebounds, and 899 assists in 1961-62.

Doncic, 25, has tallied 2,370 points, 647 rebounds, and 686 assists through 70 games (all starts) this season. James Harden (2,356-659-907 in 2016-17) is sixth, followed by John Havlicek (2,338-730-607 in 1970-71).

Dallas Mavericks’ Luka Doncic could become the 10th NBA player to average at least 34 PPG in a season

Last week, the five-time All-Star was on pace to become the 10th player in NBA history to average at least 34 points per game in a single season. However, he’s now below the mark.

Through 65 games (all starts) this season, he’s averaging a career-high 33.9 points per contest on 48.7% shooting from the field and career bests of 38.2% from 3-point range and 78.6% at the foul line.

Wilt Chamberlain tops the list with an average of 50.4 points per game in the 1961-62 season. Jordan is second with a 37.1 PPG average in 1986-87, followed by Harden (36.1 PPG in 2018-19), Rick Barry (35.6 PPG in 1966-67), Kobe Bryant (35.4 PPG in 2005-06), Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (34.8 PPG in 1971-72), Elgin Baylor (34.8 PPG in 1960-61), Bob McAdoo (34.5 PPG in 1974-75), Tiny Archibald (34 PPG in 1972-73), and Doncic.

Additionally, in Dallas’ 115-105 win over the Utah Jazz on March 25, Doncic became the second-fastest NBA player to record 75 career triple-doubles in his 392nd career game.

Oscar Robertson leads the all-time list with just 182 games needed to record 75 triple-doubles. Jokic trails Doncic for third with 511 games, followed by Magic Johnson (518) and Westbrook (661).

Moreover, Doncic is one of nine players in NBA history to reach 75 triple-doubles. The six-year veteran is currently tied with Harden (77) for the eighth-most triple-doubles in league history.

According to ESPN’s Bobby Marks, Doncic will become eligible to sign a five-year, $367 million supermax extension in 2025 after he makes All-NBA First Team this season. Of course, he would earn $73.4 million per season on such a deal.
