Dorian Finney-Smith calls Luka Doncic “Best Rookie in the NBA” (FV Exclusive)
Dallas Maverick power forward Dorian Finney-Smith gives his perspective on Luka Doncic’s play thus far.
The rookie class of each year is one many eyes love to watch for many reasons. One of them being these players are the future of the NBA. Last years rookie class was filled with sensational players: Ben Simmons, Donovan Mitchell and Jayson Tatum.

Nonetheless, his teammate is not lying when he says Doncic is playing like the “best rookie in the NBA.”
