Andres Nocioni expressed his excitement for everything Luka Doncic has accomplished in his career so far.

Nocioni and Doncic were teammates in Real Madrid (2015), when the superstar of the Dallas Mavericks made his debut as a professional player.

“What Luka has achievesd in these five years is something historic, something that will remain in everyone’s memory for many years because at his young age, he’s been EuroLeague MVP, EuroLeague Final Four MVP and is becoming an NBA superstar at a young age.

At 21, he already seems mature, leaving the impression that he dominates the game in the NBA, the same way he did when left Real Madrid, when he was dominating the game in Europe. That’s not something that is seen every day.

The most important thing Luka has achieved in these five years, is going from being a promise to a reality. Very fast. The truth is that the way in which he achieved this in five years is crazy.

He went from starting to rub shoulders with veterans, to dominating the NBA in numbers. For now, it doesn’t happen in results but it does in statistics. I think it’s one of the most explosive and extraordinary appearances of FIBA basketball in its entire history,” Nocioni told Basquet Plus.
