    Luka Doncic is a modern day Larry Bird. He's gonna bring the Dallas Mavericks back to prominence.

    The last player to remind any of us of Larry Bird would be Dirk... Though even a Dirk in his prime couldn't pass like Larry nor could play defense like Larry... Nor the BB IQ Bird had... Im not saying Luka will be Larry Bird... But if you watch highlights of Luka play, he plays a lot like Bird... For being so young his IQ for the game is special... No one disputes his passing ability... If Luka can develop & get really consistent with his shot, thats the only thing that can hold him back from being really special... If Luka can shoot in the NBA & create for others like many think he can... Hes gonna remind a lot of people of Larry Bird! Bird wasn't some athletic freak... Larry could shoot, run the offense, play defense, rebound, all around player... Luka I think is the closest player the NBA has seen that can play a similar style to Larry Bird. Anyone know what Larry's Rookie stats?

  • sam millr
    sam millr 2 months ago

    Tough to project out to the NBA. Great skillset, low athletic ceiling. Fortunately he's not 7'3" like kristaps, so should have a relatively long, injury free career in which to develop.

  • VaingloryScithiro
    VaingloryScithiro 2 months ago +1

    His only question mark is his athleticism he was a kid playing against grown men let him grow into his body and he's going to be great

    • Moritz Sk
      Moritz Sk Month ago

      Yea and if you watch him full speed he's pretty fast. And his athleticism already improved a lot in the last year

  • Jonas Juarez
    Jonas Juarez 2 months ago

    A lot of people like to disregard physical athleticism when it comes to basketball. Correct, basketball is a very technique and skill driven sport but athleticism is so important in this game. I'd even go as far as saying about 70% of NBA players could of easily became professional track athletes; with the right training of course (Not bashing on Track at all) But just the rawness of these athletes that play in the NBA is absurd...

    • Moritz Sk
      Moritz Sk Month ago

      Definitely not track athletes. People 6'6 or over generally are slow with only a few exceptions. Compare centers/powerforwards even small forward speed with other sports and you'll see how slow they are. And if u watch doncic run full court you can see he's got good speed for his size

  • Izaya Orihara

  • Arguing With Stupid People

    Mark my words, pundits will label him with typical NBA racist stereotype assumptions: "Not very athletic, but has a high basketball IQ." He will ultimately be relegated to a 3-point specialist.

    • Moritz Sk

      Those stats are per 40 meaning per 40 minutes. Because in europe basketball games are shorter and theres a lot of rotation he didnt play as many minutes as nba players do.

  • Zane
    Zane 3 months ago +2

    I think Doncic>Ayton>Bagley III. The reasoning is that Doncic proved at 19y old he can carry a team by being mvp in the euroleague during playoffs. Ayton is very talented but less established and I think Bagley III does not have the same potential as doncic or ayton.

    archyleach 3 months ago

    Yeah, plays most like Harden but with less wiggle and is bigger and a little slower. But big enough to be more of a post threat and better rebounder, especially if gets a little stronger. Also a bit like magic and bird, should really study those two who excelled despite limited athletic ability. And should keep working on ball handling and shot.

  • Dusty151
    Dusty151 3 months ago

    I’m excited about seeing him but I don’t expect too much for the first few years. 15 points 7 rebounds and maybe 4 assists a game would be a good rookie performance. He’s still really young.

    • Francisco Prieto
      Francisco Prieto 3 months ago

      I think he can average more assist and less rebounds. Only I miss a true shooter in Dallas. But Dirk opening the 4th and Smith creating with drible...maybe Luka should play P&R, P&P with Dirk and Jordan...good opportunity to increase his assit potential

  • Gabriel Miramontes

    This past draft was a horrible draft class. I do not believe anyone from this draft will be relevant in 4 years. There is a sad downward trend in 🏀

    • Francisco Prieto
      Francisco Prieto 3 months ago

      Not. Knox, Sexton, Ayton, Young...maybe none will be All Star in 2-4 years, but surely great players with talent and great roles in their teams. I guess Knox and Luka fight for ROY

    • Gabriel Miramontes

    t_goat 3 months ago +1

    Take away the traditional athleticism from Lebron and put in a perfectly balanced shot and threat beyond the arc, you have Doncic. The court vision and bball IQ are very very comparable.

  • Sport School
    Sport School 3 months ago +4

    It's so funny how people say Doncic is gonna be a bust... anyone that says that clearly is ignorant of the game of basketball... NO ONE WITH GREAT FUNDAMENTALS IS EVER A BUST... And to those geniuses that say that he's a bad athlete... he's not... he's an average athlete... so is Harden... but he's the MVP I think... hmmm... I guess Harden must have cheated...
    Anyway, the point is, whoever says Doncic will be a bust has no idea what basketball is and how it's really played...

  • Eric Jefferson
    Eric Jefferson 3 months ago

    Darko looked great also and that was per Joe Dumars.

    • Francisco Prieto
      Francisco Prieto 3 months ago

      In the past, the Gasol's and Dirk's hype made a disaster. Every 7 ft that can shoot was the next big thing...Nikola Thisisbilly (¿?), Milicic, even Bargiani...In Spain for example, the teams are very polite to give the team keys to a younger promise in this skills, Gasol was a risk when Barcelona decide to turn him into the starting five, he was gold, but a risk. Also his brother has to pass through a smaller team like Girona to show the Barsa staff that he can be a good spanish Sabonis, as he shown in the last 6 years, creator, rebounder and defender in the post position.

    • Moritz Sk

    Doubletake Broom 3 months ago +1

    Natural athleticism is always preferred but you can change your body and make yourself more quick and smooth in your movements. He should also strengthen his core and focus on explosiveness and handling. He could be a very good player.

    • Moritz Sk
      Moritz Sk 3 months ago

      A lot of other players have to work on those things too. And doncic has a good base, 6'8-230, decent speed and hops.

  • The Black Wing HQ
    The Black Wing HQ 3 months ago

    Doesn’t box out but he’s an “elite” rebounder? Struggles against athletic and long defenders? Gee... I wonder what type of players are predominantly in the L???? 🤔 He can’t stay in front of Euro league top talent.... and he’s going to somehow do that now vs NBA level talent???

    • Moritz Sk
      Moritz Sk 3 months ago +1

      He was 18 playing against guys who were 30 and 260 pounds ofcourse its gonna be hard to box out. In college he would have had an easy time rebounding. And he doesnt really struggle against athletic/long defenders, he had one game where he didnt play well and ppl like to point to that. Everyone in the draft have had bad games and against way worse players than doncic. And he can stay infront of people.

  • Mad Wired 1
    Mad Wired 1 3 months ago

    Got a very good basketball mind but his quickness ain't great, no way he play point in the NBA. Like his size and weight but it's going to be difficult to separate from NBA players. Not as great in this era, would have been more dominate in Dirk's era, if you can't defend in this NBA you are getting exposed badly. Talented bud the lack of athleticism and lack of foot speed are huge red flags.

    • Moritz Sk
      Moritz Sk 3 months ago

      Yea but so did every guy in college you wont beat your man every time. And the thing with him is in a lot of those clips he was 17, 18 playing against veterans with way more experience, so at times he will struggle against them. I honestly believe if you had put him in college, he'd been one of the better defenders because his IQ translates to defense too, and he's got good size, can steal/block and stay infront of most.

    • Mad Wired 1
      Mad Wired 1 3 months ago

      Moritz Sk No I like his game a lot I think he is mad talented but I'm a defensive guy just as much as I'm a offensive guy. Honestly I don't see the quick first step and at times he struggled against some Euro player of the dribble. Yes in transition he picks up a lot of speed but he also got burned quite a few times in iso situations. Let's just see what happens but he's a great offensive player with a high IQ!!

    • Moritz Sk
      Moritz Sk 3 months ago

      Luka doncic doesnt have a bad first step for someone who's 6'8. We have to look at the plays he goes full speed not when he goes slow and looks for a pass. And he's made so many defensive plays in his career already, and has shown that he can move his feet. Because of his size and good hands he can switch on multiple positions too. And I wouldnt say harden is a supreme athlete. And curry definitely isnt. They get past defenders with handles not speed. To me the defense criticism is mainly because you ant really find much else to criticise him for, I guarantee he wont be a defensive liability moreso the opposite.

    • Mad Wired 1
      Mad Wired 1 3 months ago

      Moritz Sk Curry doesn't have great top speed but his first step is actually very good. Harden is a supreme athlete with one of the best 1st steps in the leauge, just doesn't have defensive skills. Also being 6'8 he needs to have quick feet and unfortunately he doesn't, he might get better if he trims down but at this point it looks like he might struggle a bit on defence.

    • Moritz Sk
      Moritz Sk 3 months ago

      Not true. Curry, Harden, Kyrie and a bunch of other guys are a lot worse defenders than doncic and mvp candidates. And he doesnt really lack athleticism, if you watch him in transition you can see he's fast for 6'8-230, faster than a lot of nba players, and he can jump too.

  • Alper Ozcan
    Alper Ozcan 3 months ago

    As much as I love to see Luka play, "does things never done before in Europe" is much far fetched. Drazen (RIP), Sabonis, Naumoski, Bodiroga comes to mind very quickly and countless others have been equally if not more successful at his age and his level. Let's wait and see, but I would love to see him grow into the best European PG ever.

  • Carefreeblues
