About a month ago, an internet user asked LeBron James who was his preferred player under 25 years old. The Lakers player replied with enthusiasm : « LUKA. This is my favorite player !! » In the last episode of his talk show“The Shop,” in addition to his dream of becoming the owner of an NBA team in Las Vegas, he further said on Luka Doncic.
What makes the 23 -year -old Slovenian special, is first of all « to size. I hear from there that it is gigantic. A 2m03 game manager, he weighs 102 kilos. He controls the balloon. And more importantly, his vision. That’s why I love it. »
A vision if developed, like that of LeBron James, which allows him to turn 8 decisive passes on average since the beginning of his career. It’s a little more than the Lakers player, who has turned around rather around 6 caviars per game in his first four seasons but is not playing as a leader.
“King” was made by a body-dimensional rappeler with a triple All-Star, much bigger and costly than the main men who contested the playoffs for example (Stephen Curry, Chris Paul, Ja Morant, Jrue Holiday, Kyle Lowry ). But this physical advantage does not do everything.
« He can control a match, he doesn’t even need a shootercontinue LeBron James. He can literally push the balloon ten times in a row to get into his zone each time, simply according to his rhythm. One of the keys, according to him, is his “pick-and-roll” reading and his ability to analyze how opposing defenders are going to cover it up.
« He knows he can get out because he has this shoulder (pour aller au contact) and that when he comes in front of the third line of defense, if he slows down and uses his pivot foot, without even shouting, just using the euro-step, one-two, this guy passes by each time . »
The whole genius of Luka Doncic, capable of ballad no matter what defender of the league while playing at his own pace, summarized in a few words.
