Luka Doncic Named November Hickok Belt® Award Winner


ROCHESTER, NY – A select panel of National Sports Media Association (NSMA) voters has chosen basketball superstar Luka Doncic, point guard for the Dallas Mavericks, as the winner of the November 2022 Hickok Belt® Award. He was selected a second time as a monthly winner for his outstanding performances during the month. A few of these amazing records include: becoming the second fastest player (in number of games played -280) to score 7,500 points, 2,000 plus rebounds, and 2,000 plus assists, recording his 51st triple-double 41 points, 12 rebounds, and 12 assists and tied Dirk Nowitzki for second-most 40-point outings (20) in Mavs history. Luka Doncic is being compared to megastars Wilt Chamberlain, LeBron James, and Michael Jordan as the 23-year-old continues to move forward in his remarkable career.
