    That step-back is killer and he can take it to the hoop. Or find the open guy with a pass. He is the complete package.

    Here's hoping he can get another triple double against anti-white Ty Lue and his Clippers. Lot of black supremacist energy on that team like how they treated Kleber and Porzingis. Getting swept will be justice.

    He is an extremely talented “ head case”. There will be many strange things to happen throughout the next decade. It’ll be Josh Hamilton-esque, although Josh was a good dude with demons. Luka is something else altogether.

    I don’t think Luka is that bad. He is extremely competitive and a complete alpha. Every time he steps on the court he knows he is the best player. He has an ego, but that is ok.

    I would like to see Dallas build a better team around him; some spot shooters would be extremely helpful. Giving Boban more consistent minutes also a plus. Porzingas should be healthier to start the season and I expect him to put in a 20 point, 10 rebound season and rediscover his terrific early career defense as his health improves.

    It's amusing that there would be a naysayer early on Page 2 of the Luka Doncic thread, which regardless of page count will last for 12 more years, forum permitting. I enjoy the musings of 'DWF Upside' because of his contrarianism, but I haven't yet registered any of the counterpoints he's tried to make (including that Porzingis is, as of this day, a top-3 or better white player in the NBA).

    I don't really know what else to say. Euros don't learn to defer to blacks when they grow up playing basketball, that's why they are occasionally successful when they're thrown into the NBA cesspool. If you played an intramural, rec, pickup game, whatever with a mixed-race crew anywhere in USA, blacks will ALWAYS try to rip a white point guard and often stop checking a white player with range who gets free. This is just an ingrained instinct in black players vs whites, who are coached to be cautious and avoid turnovers. If he hits the three, it's ok if you didn't get in his face. For whites, avoiding turnovers is likely very overemphasized.

    Luka Doncic is doing things no NBA Player is doing and is already in the history books for so many things. Day one hall of famer but that's years away. I think he is a better player than Nikola Jokic who won the
    NBA MVP this year. Glad Jokic won but in the long run over a career I would take Doncic over any player in the league. When all is said and done people will look back in his career in awe. He is the best player in
    the league already in my honest opinion and I'm a life long basketball fan. Let's sit back and enjoy what this kid does over the next decade!

    Luka "Magic"! The kid can do anything on the basketball court. He is like poetry in motion. So smooth and he cannot be stopped! I expect him to possibly lead the nba in scoring next year!

    apparently no one has noticed what Luka”Magic” is doing across the sea ... well, to surmise:

    Luka led Slovenia to their first-ever Olympic Games appearance, then he followed that up with an absolutely MONSTER opening game, as Slovenia BLITZED Argentina. en route, Luka set all manner of records, as he dominated the game (highlighted by his 48 points). he makes the game look so easy. see below some of the action.

    The behind the back pass at 3:09 was unreal! Looks like he is having a great time with his countrymen. I think they have a chance against USA just because of Luka.

    I agree El Gringo. They interviewed Luka Doncic before the Olympics started. The media asked him if winning an Olympic Gold Medal would be equal to winning an
    NBA Championship? He said he would love to win both but if he could only win one of the two he would choose for Slovenia to win the gold medal. He is very proud
    of his country, his heritage and traditions. The guy also speaks 2 or 3 languages. Very smart guy and in my opinion the best basketball player in the world.

    That is a very cool thing for Luka to say! I hope they can pull it off. The only teammate on the roster I recognize is Zoran Dragic.

    I think they have a shot, its obvious for anyone to see that many team USA and even NBA players have tuned out the woke, phony, pathetic lowlife that is Greg Popovich, this so called man has lost all credibility with the brothas as they know he is a blowhard and see through his pandering BS.

    Good point on the old commie.

    No one likes extremely “liberal” whites. Not normal White people and especially not other racial groups. They are obnoxious, annoying and un-relatable. The previous USA teams that had success did so under Coach K. A coach that actually commands respect and was able to meld the many black divas into a formidable squad. The current squad has very little chemistry.

    Got a good laugh at those last two comments! He just looks miserable all the time like all old commie bastards!
