Utah Jazz point guard Ricky Rubio spoke with the Spanish newspaper Marca and referred to Luka Doncic and his potential.

Here is what the Spanish player said:

On Doncic’s talent: “I knew what he was capable of because I had seen him at Real Madrid. Many didn’t really understand that he was in the best European team of last season.”

On the young Slovenian’s potential: “Being an MVP of your team is very difficult, especially at such a young age, but he is a very special player.

I don’t like talking about him too much to avoid creating bigger expectations, but he’s one of those players you have to talk about. For me, he is going to be a very dangerous player and the best European of all time.”

On whether Doncic can exceed the expectations: “I know how hard it is to get here at a very young age and with very high expectations. Sometimes you get distracted.

At the end, all you want is to play basketball and enjoy the sport. However, I think Luka is very mature, he has shown it from the beginning of his NBA career being an incredible leader.”
