LeBron James isn’t quite used to not playing basketball at this point in the NBA season, but he’s been doing a lot of watching, with his Los Angeles Lakers having missed the playoffs this year. The superstar veteran entertained fans in a Twitter Q&A on Monday night and, asked who his favorite player under 25 is, named Luka Doncic while making it clear the Slovenian is his favorite player outright.

Doncic is having himself quite the season and is gearing up for what should be a hard-fought series against the Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference after leading the Dallas Mavericks to a Game 7 victory against the Phoenix Suns on Sunday night. The 23-year-old scored 35 points along with 10 rebounds and 4 assists to close the series out in blowout fashion as the Mavs ran off to a 123-90 victory.
