NBA Legend Dirk Nowitzki praised his former teammate and current leader of the Dallas Mavericks, Luka Doncic, for his accomplishments.

“I got to be honest, I thought he would have a tougher transition here in year two. Just because he was so phenomenal last year with all the triple-doubles, I thought people were really going to hone in on him.

But, he seemed to have gotten even better. I guess I was wrong. Even the experts can be wrong. He’s looking fantastic,” Nowitzki said, per USA Today.

The legendary German power forward/center was in attendance on Sunday’s game between the LA Lakers and the Dallas Mavericks at Staples Center and received a standing ovation from the Lakers fans.
