KIA MVP Ladder Mailbag: Where Are Luka Doncic And Pascal Siakam?
Written By: Sekou Smith
Despite the way it appears, there are no agendas or conspiracy theories with the first Kia Race to the MVP Ladder of 2019-20.
Dallas wunderkind Luka Doncic and budding Toronto star Pascal Siakam weren’t featured prominently enough (Doncic) or at all (Siakam) on that edition, an administrative oversight that will be rectified this week.

Doncic has the Mavericks looking like a playoff contender in the West, leading them in points (28.3), rebounds (10.3), assists (9.1) and steals (1.1). He’s already gone toe-to-toe with LeBron James and looked every bit the future superstar many he thought he’d be after his Kia Rookie of the Year season.
Meanwhile, Siakam is continuing the breakout performance he put on in The Finals, his skill-level finally on par with next-level energy and effort. At 26.3 ppg, 9.5 rpg and 3.9 apg, he’s doing his best to fill the franchise anchor-sized void left by Kawhi Leonard’s exit.
