LeBron James spoke with the media and referred to Luka Doncic and the other European players in the NBA.

Here is what the “King” said: 

On Luka Doncic and the European players: “I think European players are developed faster than the NBA guys, meaning American players.

I think he’s been in a pro development stage now for how many years? Since he’s 15? So I don’t think this is intimidating to him. I don’t think this game is something he hasn’t seen before.”

On European Basketball: “I think that’s the best thing about European basketball, pro basketball over there. They develop their players so early.”

On his former team-mate, Cedi Osman, being such an example: “I’ve seen it with Cedi Osman last year in Cleveland. He was a rookie as an NBA player but you could see that his development was better than some NBA players.”
