Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr praised Luka Doncic for his excellent performances so far in the season.

Here is what the experienced coach told the media:

“I think he’s already an All-Star. I don’t know how the vote is going to shake out, but he looks like an All-Star player to me,” Kerr said prior to Sunday’s game between the defending champions and the Dallas Mavericks.

“The guy doesn’t look like a rookie. I didn’t know much about him and I never saw him play before playing against Dallas for the first time and watching him on TV before that.

He’s confident beyond where you would expect someone in his shoes to be. Coming from a different country and being 19 years old. He’s a brilliant player,” he added.

Doncic had a team-high 26 points against the Warriors, but Golden State stood tall and claimed the road win (114-119).
