Mark Cuban made an interesting comparison between Luka Doncic and Los Angeles Lakers and NBA legend Magic Johnson.

The owner of the Dallas Mavericks opened up about what makes Doncic the closest thing to Magic Johnson in the modern era of the NBA.

“He can pass the ball, see from the top, get where he wants from the court. Knows how to pass to guys on time and on target. Clutch player in crunch time.

Will take on responsibility against anybody, anytime. Great teammate. Fun Kid. Magic will light things up with a smile, Luka’s the same way for the Mavs.

He’s got that charisma that Magic has,” Cuban said during his appearance on the Danger Show with Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.

Doncic was an MVP candidate last season, as he averaged 28.8 points, 9.4 rebounds, and 8.8 assists for the Mavericks.
