San Antonio Spurs head coach, Gregg Popovich, praised Luka Doncic, after his team’s win over the Dallas Mavericks (101-105).

Here is what the legendary coach told the media, per Brad Townsend of the Dallas Morning News:

“I think his demeanor. He has pace about him that is never frantic. He’s calm in everything that he does. He understands spatial relationships and understands where everybody is on the court, what’s needed at the time and he’s got courage.

He’ll take big shots and do what needs to be done to try to win a basketball game. And he obviously attracts the respect of his teammates. That’s pretty tough for a rookie to do as quickly as he did. All of that makes him one hell of a basketball player and person.”
