Russell Westbrook had more triple-doubles than Jokic, Luka and Sabonis combined… and still didn’t make the All-Star team in 2021. PM

More on this storyline

If he earns All-NBA in 2023-24, Doncic would then become eligible to sign a five-year projected $318 million supermax extension. He is not allowed to sign the extension in 2024 because he will have only six years of service but he will have met the criteria (All-NBA in two of the immediately preceding three seasons) and will be able to sign an extension in 2025 that would kick in for the 2026-27 season. Note: If the salary cap increases 10% over the next three years, the Doncic extension would be $367.5 million. The last year of the contract would be $83.6 million. -via ESPN / September 17, 2023
