Luka Doncic and Kawhi Leonard have both failed to make the NFL Finals over the course of the last two seasons. However, both players remain amongst the 10 top hoopers in the NBA, due to their consistency and clutch play with their respective teams. Since moving to Los Angeles in 2019, Kawhi has found it hard to establish his presence in the Western Conference and lead the Clippers to the finals.

Luka and the Mavericks got off to a flying start during their first-round playoff series against the Clippers in June. Despite taking a 2-0 lead early on in the series, it was Kawhi’s team who fought back to progress to the next round by winning Game 7.

Meanwhile, Slovenian international Luka Doncic has a net worth between $5 – $8 million. but it’s just a matter of time till the former MVP signs a new long-term deal. We predict it might make him one of the top earners in the league, by a considerable margin. Either way, Doncic is here to stay in the NBA for the long run, so we might as well bask in the greatness of this future superstar.
