Dallas Mavericks All-Star Luka Doncic was named to the 2019-20 All-NBA First Team with a total of 419 points which included 59 First Team votes.
The Slovenian is the third player in franchise history (Dirk Nowitzki, Steve Nash) to be named to any All-NBA Team and the first since Nowitzki in 2011 (First Team). Nowitzki and Doncic are the only players in franchise history to be named to the First Team.
He also becomes the first player in over 20 years, since Tim Duncan for the 1998-1999 season, to be named to the First Team in their first or second season. He is also the sixth player ever to receive a First Team selection at the age of 21 or younger.
Aged 21 years and 168 days at the end of the seeding games schedule in the Orlando bubble, Doncic becomes the third-youngest player ever to be named the All-NBA First Team.
Here's a look at the complete list available, as per Mavs PR:
|Players||Season||Age (at end of regular season)|
|LeBron James||2004-05||21 years, 110 days|
|Max Zaslofsky||1946-47||21 years, 114 days|
|Luka Doncic||2019-20||21 years, 168 days|
|Kevin Durant||2009-10||21 years, 197 days|
|Tim Duncan||1998-99||21 years, 359 days|
|Rick Barry||1965-66||21 years, 359 days|
If the 2019-20 season would have ended as per schedule on April 15th, Doncic, at 21 years and 47 days, would have been the youngest ever to receive an All-NBA First Team selection
