“Unbelievable. But we were talking about if he can keep this up, and I was like, ‘Yo, if somebody can keep this up, it’s him,'” said veteran Mavs guard J.J. Barea, who serves as a mentor for Doncic. “He plays on the ground. He’s super smart. He’s shooting the ball well. He’s finishing really well. I see him keeping it up. “It’s not hard for him to do this right now. He’s not forcing crazy s—. It’s just coming. That’s why I think he can keep this up. He’s making it look easy.”
You’re out of the rotation since your first or second year in the league. How tough is that to deal with? Jose Juan Barea: It’s been tough. I’m coming off an injury, so maybe it’s a good thing that I get a little more time to get ready. But it’s definitely tough. I’m used to grinding and being in the fight with my teammates. But it’s a different situation and I understand that we got a lot of guys here, a lot of young, good talent. I just got to be ready. I was ready the other day, they put me in, I did a good job. So I just got to stay ready and wait for my time.
