Oh boy, Luka Doncic is on fire! In 2025, he’s gonna be swimming in a pool of cash. We’re talking a five-year, $367 million supermax extension if he nails the All-NBA First Team in the 2023-24 season. That’s a whopping $73.4 million per season. Just let that sink in.

Right now, the dude’s making $40.04 million. Not too shabby, right? This is all part of a five-year deal with Dallas, worth $215.16 million, that he signed back in 2021.

And guess what? The betting sites are buzzing. Doncic’s got the fourth-best odds to snag the MVP title this season. But, he’s got some stiff competition. Names like Nikola Jokic, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, and Giannis Antetokounmpo are also in the mix.

Here’s a tweet that dropped like a bomb: “Mavericks Luka Doncic note: when he makes the All-NBA team, 1st team once again this season, Doncic is eligible to sign a projected 5-yr, $367 million supermax extension in 2025.” And yes, we’re talking $73.4 MILLION A SEASON! #MFFL. That’s from Kevin Gray Jr., folks.

Doncic’s current deal? It’s sweet. Includes a 2026-27 player option worth $48.96 million and a 15% trade bonus. Remember, the Mavericks picked him third overall in the 2018 NBA Draft. His rookie contract? A cool four years, $32.46 million.

Now, let’s talk about Jaylen Brown for a sec. The Boston Celtics star just inked a five-year, $304 million supermax contract extension. That’s the biggest contract in NBA history. But, back to Doncic.

He’s on track for his fifth straight All-NBA First-Team nod. Through 46 games, all starts, he’s posting career highs. We’re talking 34.3 points, 9.6 assists, and 37.6 minutes per game. Mind-blowing, right?

Another extension seems likely. But wait, there’s more.

Doncic isn’t just playing; he’s leading the NBA in points per game with a career-high 73 points. Six years in, and he’s shooting 49.1% from the field. His 3-point range? A career-best 37.9%. Foul line? 77.5%.

More importantly, he’s topping the charts this season in points per game (34.3) and field goal attempts (1,082). He’s also third in points (1,579) and fifth in assists (440). Plus, he ranks high in value over replacement player, usage percentage, and triple-doubles.

In a game against the Atlanta Hawks on Jan. 26, Doncic scored a career-high 73 points. He also grabbed 10 rebounds, dished out seven assists, and snagged one steal in 45 minutes.

Breaking news hit when Doncic agreed to sign a five-year, $207-million supermax rookie extension. His agent spilled the beans to @wojespn. That game? He shot 25-of-33 (75.8%) from the floor, 8-of-13 (61.5%) from deep, and 15-of-16 (93.8%) at the line. He tied with legends for the fourth-highest scoring game in NBA history.

Doncic joined an elite club, becoming the fifth NBA player with at least 70 points and 10 rebounds in a game. The others? Chamberlain, Baylor, Robinson, and Embiid.

His game score? A career-high 64, second only to Michael Jordan’s 64.6 in 1990. Kobe Bryant and Embiid are right up there with him.

Lastly, NBA sportsbooks are eyeing Doncic for NBA Clutch Player of the Year. But, Stephen Curry, Lillard, and Gilgeous-Alexander might give him a run for his money.
