Watching Luka play

You lost bro? Blake thread is that way -------------->

He was the #146 player over the last 2 months of the season. Efficiency is terrible and defensive stats are bad. Is a player like that worth your 2nd pick? 

This is the best pure basketball player in the NBA. You guys are watching the next MJ, Lebron, Kobe. He might not be the most athletically dominate but his basketball IQ is on par with Lebron and his skill set is one of the best in the league. His bag is deep and full of skills and tricks.

LOL chill out. He has been amazing no doubt but that is an overreaction. Should we just ignore the stars who have been dominant for years for Luka who hasnt even played a year and half yet in the NBA? Harden is the best and smartest player in the league hands down

Sure, right now, but Harden is 10 years older than Luka. Luka's only scratching the surface.

Exactly. This kid is 20 putting up stat lines I’ve only seen from the greatest of NBA players. I really don’t even care about the numbers. It’s the eye test. He is greatness. People can point out sample size but he’s taking the league by storm at 20 and the arrow is just pointing up.

The mix of skills and IQ is unmatched. He's plenty athletic, it doesn't matter. People need to forget that, it was something that talking heads slapped him with to validate their prejudiced against him when he entered the league. It's all they had and they should be embarrassed.

Oh he’s definitely athletic. I just meant he’s not a 6’8 brick house like Lebron, or a 6’10 beast like Giannis. He’s not overly big or fast, but still gets it done. But yes, the skills and IQ is absolutely insane at 20 and he has the brightest future in the NBA right now.

Indeed. We may be watching a top five all-time great from the beginning. This is special.

So is Luka regressing? Percentages were through the floor last week. I didn't think his early numbers were sustainable, but don't think he's going to struggle like this for too long, but haven't seen him play at all since he got back from his injury.

 

Averaging 30/10/9 on 45% shooting in month of Jan and dude is "struggling".

I think he was referring back to November when he averaged a triple double and shot 49%.  Probably thought that was Luka's B game.  But yeah his steals have dropped a lot.  Seems like he's getting a little tired performing like a MVP all the time and carrying Porzingod on his back.
