Sports analyst Skip Bayless gave his take on Luka Doncic and his game. While praising his passing ability and his rebounding, which Bayless compared to that of the legendary Dennis Rodman, he criticized other aspects of Luka’s game.

According to Bayless, Doncic is a defensive liability for his team. Also, he is a subpar three-point shooter.

“Luka Doncic is a gifted passer, but he’s also an incredibly gifted rebounder. He is Rodman-esque to me. … But when it comes to shooting the basketball, he’s about from here to Boston to catch Larry Bird,” Bayless said.

The young Mavericks’ star is averaging 29 points, 9.5 rebounds and 8.8 assists per game in his second NBA season.
