Luka Doncic recently asked the Dallas Mavericks to revamp their roster and seek his help before the February 9 trade deadline.

The Mavs have limited business assets to offer him the co-star or superstar he needs to lift him to a championship, and it looks like they’ll be stuck in the boring “good but not great” category for the foreseeable future.

For now, all Doncic can do is channel his frustrations into productive play on the field, and that’s exactly what he’s been doing since late December.

In his last 12 games, he averaged 37.3 points, 10.2 rebounds and 9.2 assists for a Dallas team that has won eight of those contests.

During that time, he had one 43-point game, two 50-point games and one 60-point game.

That was good enough to put Dallas in fifth place in the Western Conference with a 24-22 average.

The silver lining for the team is that the West is weaker than it has been in years, which leaves the conference race wide open.

That means, at least in theory, the door is open for a virtual one-man team like the Mavs to make a run in the NBA Finals.

Sure, they made it to the Western Conference Finals last season, only to be swept by the NBA champion Golden State Warriors.

On the other hand, the Mavs’ task was made more difficult as big man Christian Wood, perhaps their second best player, was sidelined with a broken thumb.

How long can Doncic keep going without burning out?
