Luka Doncic is getting ready for his rookie season in the NBA, as a member of the Dallas Mavericks, and is looking forward to facing LeBron James.

In a recent ESPN roundtable discussion with his fellow top rookies, Doncic stated he is so excited he will play against LeBron James.

“It’s definitely LeBron James because he was my idol. He is my idol. That will be fun,” the 2018 EuroLeague MVP said.

The 2017 European champion with Slovenia also picked the “King” as the favourite to win the MVP Award.

“LeBron James. I think it’s going to be tough for him [in Los Angeles]. They’re a young team, but it’s still LeBron,” Doncic mentioned.
