NBA Hall of Famer Julius “Dr. J” Erving talked on the Dallas Mavericks point forward Luka Doncic:
“Luka is probably not top-ten yet. He has one year in the league and had a great year as a rookie and was phenomenal. Sometimes it could happen quickly for a guy years one through three more so in my estimation when a guy is in the league. His fourth and fifth year is when you really what you got.
The fact that he started playing professionally at age 16 or 17 hasn’t hurt him so he might be an early bloomer than some of the guys, who go to the universities in the U.S. The one and done guys, but he had a great season, and he is a great replacement for Dirk,” Erving said, per ClutchPoints.
This past season, Doncic averaged 21.2 points, 7.8 rebounds, 1.1 steals and 6.0 assists per game.
