    I'm a Luka fan and the question is stupid. What he has to do is do exactly what he's doing now and continue doing it for 5, 10, 15 years and things will come his way. Predicting it now is just playing Nostradumbass.

    Wel, if he is American, than he would be no.1 superstar in the League, but unfortunatelly he is not, and thats the problem.

    Spears always gives the black guy more credit than deserved, and never gives any credit if the player isn’t black.
    That’s every single black analyst in any sport.
    Luka has gone against the best this generation has to offer and he’s proven he’s the better player.

    ESPN is getting worse everyday with this nonsense. The quest should be what does Luka need to do to be considered a great player right now. No one should be talked about an all time great in their second year. I don’t care who they are. Does Luka have the potential to be an all time great, absolutely, but we can’t talk about him in that category when he isn’t even half way through his second season.

    Mavs are having an amazing season, a sophomore 20 year old European is crushing it and the grumpy old man is like: but that one game

    The black guy represents every black guy who likes basketball. They are too salty to accept that the next generational player aint black, is a white guy from europe whocan speak 4 languages and makes look bad ever single NBA annalist.

    .....Put in his time. He is off to a great start of his career. However, I have seen this before. And some do not continue it. He is playing like a monster. He only has to keep it coming. And his team will have to win. If all of this falls in place, then we will compare him to the greats of the game. He is ascending right now at a rapid rate. That is fantastic! I could nitpick his stats and game. I am not going to. I believe he only needs to keep on performing at this level, and the rest will fall in place.

    Why name a video like this if you're not going to talk about that at all? Sure you mention luka but not what he needs to do to be one of the greats. Click bait title.

    20-5-5 Wow. That benchmark is a bad game for Luka. :)

  • Jim Hollywood

    He is doing it. Hopefully he is doing it as a Mav for another twenty years. He needs to win a championship. Which means the pieces around him need to come together more. Maybe they acquire another player to balance him. Porzingis needs to keep recovering and hopefully reach his potential.

    He lost to the kings on a back to back it was not a good argument, and they also have wins against big teams it happens

    How about play more than 1 1/3 seasons. ESPN is so desperate to crown the next one. He has won Rookie of the Year. Everybody has incredible numbers, Westbrook averages a triple double for like 3 years in a row. Harden gonna lead the league in scoring with 40 points a game. The Lakers have the best record. Well I guess he will have to be the best player at 20 not leading the league in ANYTHING.

    Luka Doncic is ridiculous. it's scary to think that this guy still has 10-15 years of solid basketball play left. hopefully he won't get any serious injuries

  • WilliamMax
    WilliamMax Month ago +1

    All he needs is more seasons to play, he has been in the league for 2 years and he already prove that he is a great player. But he still needs to show us more, more than 2 years

    Dude trippin over an L to the Kings but failed to realize that was the Mavs 4th game in 6 days. Both back to backs! 🙄 Plus this Kings team is better than what their records suggests. They went the next night and beat the Rockets on the road on a back to back. Stfu
