    this is amazing,, i believe that the end of the world is coming ,, aliens have invaded US and they took human form, Doncic is way better than every one in this draft, Bagley would be right now a bench player in a good European team and Young for sure (in 4 years he would be good ),, so let’s sit comfortable and enjoy the rookie year of Luka together with the Mavs fans who are very lucky ,, this is a comedy the stupidity of the Hawks is monumental,, they are comedians, probably there is something wrong , a curse maybe, that all the GMs there dangerous and stupid( except Ferry and we see what happened to him ),, let’s talk again in 6 months,, every year I am waiting for the Hawks picks to made my day,,,

      it might be but given the past two teams who won the title and where the nba is going. wouldn't it be better to just get a big man that can effectively run the pick and roll and play defense?

    GeneralEY 23 11 months ago +2

    He is the most NBA ready prospect in this draft by far. He is ready to make an immediate impact wherever he goes. The fact that his floor is already pretty high and higher than other players in this draft, makes me wonder how high his ceiling is. Will he get much better than he already is and be a superstar or not is the question. I believe players like Ayton, Jackson Jr and Porter Jr have higher ceilings but wont make an immediate impact like Doncic will.

    Big Reaper 11 months ago

    everyone is really on this doncic train.
    Also Pablo is crazy defense and pick roll defense is crucial for big man but not doncic. Who will doncic guard. You have to be a transcendent talent like harden, curry or kyrie for people to ignore your defense. if your ok and cant play defense you will only start for suns or the magics.

      Bleckyyyy 11 months ago

      I don't get it... If you were actually honest you'd admit european defense is better than nba... When i watch Harden Westbrook and rest of the so called athletic stars... ON DEFENSE... I could guard like that let alone Doncic xD Yeah he's bigger... But that makes him LOOK slow :D He already succesfully guarded Westbrook when he was 16 y old. But whatever... Remember my comment once the season starts...

    • Big Reaper
      Big Reaper 11 months ago

      Trevor Ariza or Igoudala or clay will easily guard doncic. He will not play guard. he is just too slow for that position. Lets just hope he gets into shape so he can guard anyone on the floor. Also he needs to be faster to get his own shot off. Lets be honest euro league doesn't compare to the NBA. All I'm saying is he needs a lot of physical training before he can compete in the NBA. With a lot of hard work he will get there

    • Bleckyyyy
      Bleckyyyy 11 months ago

    I find it funny how more than half of the NBA teams & fans don't understand/realize that the NBA has changed... You haven't been able to play big men vs the Warriors for damn near 3~5 years! The best big men in the league put up monster stat lines vs the Warriors & still lose by 20+ LMAO!!! Houston figured it out, you need an elite back court (CP3/Harden) that can match the Warriors 3 point consistency/output. I'm not a Warriors fan but the Warriors have set the standard & the Rockets represent the blueprint to competing/beating those standards.
    You're not winning the chip with a traditional big in today's NBA!!!
    I had Luka Doncic #1 from day 1 & still....

    • Asmosis Jones
      Asmosis Jones 11 months ago

      right cause you only play the warriors death about teams stop switching and play man to man...cause usually 90% of the time there is a center out there with another center that switches onto a guard reason or stays on perimeter to switch onto wings...the warriors for example had za za west bell looney mcgee any of them even shoot from mid slow and old school bill wennington types..dont tell me the nba is small when the best team has 5 bigs who dont shoot 3's put there to guard...capela embidd hoford ad23 kevin love gobert jonas are real quick guys lol..thats what suceeds in the playoffs...thosr slow bigs...

  • Zach S
    Zach S 11 months ago

    His lateral quickness seems to be a problem. The dude has game but his biggest question mark isn’t even his fault, it’s the fact that Euro style players have historically struggled to adapt to the NBA. Yes there have been exceptions but those aren’t as likely. That being said Bagley is the safest pick, all he needs is to get better defensively.

  • Bearboy193

      ASAP BAS you don’t know how his game will translate into the nba as far as a defender giannis was never projected to be a defensive player he has potential it’s easier to guard some one like Luca then it would be to guard a 7footer who can shot like towns and kristaps and Joel.

    • Basim Israr
      Basim Israr 11 months ago

      Airven Francis but how many bad defensive point guards are successful in the league? Harden, curry, Westbrook Barely even tries on defense, Kemba Walker, Kyrie Irving... and how many good centers are bad on defense? Would you rather have a bad defensive point guard or a bad rim protector as your center?

      i dont believe those measurements are accurate. if they are, then a fair comparison of someone that size would be guys like scottie pippen and kawhi leonard. he's nowhere near as athletic as them.

    • thehomiealan
      thehomiealan 11 months ago

      ben simmons doesn't need to shoot if he can get to the rim without resistance. if teams start finding a way of stopping his drives to the basket, then he must develop a shot. he should really start working on it now to avoid that issue.
      one of kristaps's big strengths pre-draft was his athleticism for his size so idk where that came from. the concerns for him were the physicality of the game which still linger bc of his injury issues. although, he's already proven that he can be dominate when healthy.
      steph curry doesn't need elite athleticism bc his handle is world class and he can any type of shot from anywhere. steph's game is purely finesse and works bc he gets his defenders off-balance.

    • thehomiealan
      thehomiealan 11 months ago +1

      you can be white and athletic. gordon hayward is white and athletic. he just doesn't look explosive enough on tape. if he can find success with that, then good for him. but i haven't seen many guys in his position that lack great athleticism be very successful in the nba.
      james harden has world class handle and in the gym range, same with steph. klay is a lockdown defender and a knockdown shooter. they have world class traits. if luka's IQ and vision are truly world class, then he can find success. but for me, i just worry about the athleticism holding him back from being great.

      Yes, i watched every single game from Luka this season and i've never seen a 18-19 years old playing like a 35 years old veteran in the second best league in the world. Deandre Ayton is good and has a lot of potential but i think Doncic is the guy everybody wants to start a winning franchise. Imagine a player with his basketball IQ and a guy with a killer 3pt shot like Devin Booker that drains every assist from the wonderboy!

      I love reading this comment and replies now 7 months later. I will say that you were quite correct in that statement and other commenters here would probably want to alter their responses now as well.

      He's not holding any grudges. He flat out said that if a cellar dwellers drafted him, he'd extend his contract with Real Madrid until they traded away his draft rights.
      He went third and neither of the two teams that passed on him (including the team that drafted him) were teams he was willing to play for to begin with.

      Brandon Martin dirk is white kristaps is white there have been plenty of successful white players 😂 there are other facts that you seem to be ignoring. Ayton was a no show in the tournament, while doncic won a title in euroleague which is significantly harder to win than the March madness tournament/national championship. He is considered the best player in euroleague and ayton was considered the best player in NCAA and players in the euroleague are significantly better than college players. If a player can play he can play whether he’s white or black lol

      Native BeastMode lol Yea, N.O., Hou, POR, Bucks, PHI, BOS, MN, OKC, UTAH, WAS, TOR, CLE, MIA etc. can't shoot. But all were in the playoffs.
      Houston & Clev fell to GSW b/c neither team could shoot. Houston missed 4,000 three-pointers in a row lol BOS couldn't shoot. That's why they lost to Clev. Smart, Rozier, and Brown were awful shooting that Game 7. Clev couldn't shoot against GSW. That's why they were blown out.
      Clev. is the only team I listed w/o a 7'0 guy that they rely on. But they have Lebron.

      Native BeastMode I was AGREEING with you. I was pointing out how GOAT said that the new NBA was about "shoot, dribble, pass." I was saying that is not true. Big men in the NBA are still dominant. Almost every team but Cleveland had a really good big man, even GSW w/ the 7'0 Durant. NBA teams can't really shoot. They use big men for defense or 7'0 guys shall I say.

      Benny Ehud what are you talking about? That had nothing to do with my comment.

    • Benny Ehud
      Benny Ehud 11 months ago

      Native BeastMode The NBA can't shoot. GSW can shoot. Add Kyrie and Hayward to BOS, and they will be a team that can shoot. The rest of the NBA can't shoot. Yet, everybody is acting like 15-20 teams in the NBA can mirror GSW. No, they can't lol BOS, HOU, WAS, TOR, UTAH, OKC, NO, MN, CLE, MIA, Bucks couldn't shoot. Yet, they were all in the playoffs.

    Luka...not a Bust or a #1 Pick! More like a young Ginobili.

    • Paolo Bianchi
      Paolo Bianchi 11 months ago

      yeah I know Ginobili is great, luka is bigger though and has accomplished more at a younger age than Manu, so i'd take him #1.

      You know he's 6'8/230 right? He's physically closer to Lebron and hasn't even started lifting or working with NBA trainers yet.
