Luka Doncic is establishing himself as one of the superstars in the NBA. The 21-year-old sophomore is projected to have a very bright future in the world’s top league.

The Brooklyn Nets superstar Kevin Durant regards Doncic highly. “I think he’s built to be a star for sure. I think he understands who he is, how he wants to play, and what the future holds for him,” Durant told Richard Kleiman on The Boardroom: Out of Office podcast as transcribed by Frank Urbina of HoopsHype.

“Now what that looks like on the marketing side, I think Steve (Stoute) can answer that a little bit better, but as a talent in the NBA? He transcends a lot of things because at that age, to be that smart and to be that polished it’s just rare.”

Kleiman then said “So the bottom line is Luka Doncic to me, is…” which was completed by Kevin Durant with: “A f*cking problem.”

This season, Doncic is averaging 29.8 points, 9.4 rebounds and 8.8 assists per game for the Dallas Mavericks.
