    Luka Doncic is legit!

    http://www.espn.com/video/clip?id=25...xHVGUGWAwLMPOA

    He's done some awe-inspiring stuff already this season, but tonight's performance went to yet another level: he single-handedly speared an 11-0 run to help his team to a win. Stone killer at just 19 years of age.

    His compact and efficient fakes, moves, and the degree of difficulty on his shots are amazing to watch. You know who he's gonna get compared to, and for once, I truly see it. I never really thought Dirk Nowitzki was much like Larry Bird in terms of his style of play (both were obviously great shooters/scorers, but that's about all they had in common), but Doncic genuinely is a lot like Bird: limited athleticism, but his handle, court vision, hand-eye coordination, and variety of dead-eye shots (including in the clutch) are pure vintage Bird. We haven't had a player like this in decades. It's interesting that such a surgical skill-set still translates in the loosey-goosey, frenetic modern game.

    It's a great comparison, I agree! I really enjoy watching players who are limited in athleticism, yet make up for it with incredible craftiness. He's reminded me a lot of James Harden, who is also one of my favourite players. He's almost like a SF version of him in a lot of ways. However, I think Doncic will be a way better defender. His basketball IQ is already sky high, and among the top players imo, that's another aspect that impresses me because he's at such a young age. It will be interesting to look back at that trade years down the road.

    He's also got good physical size at 19. Maybe that keeps him from wearing down some in his rookie year. It will be interesting to see how he handles more double teams.

    To me, if you could combine Luka and Dirk, you'd have Bird ... Bird was that special.

    However, I agree, Doncic is marvelous and a lot of fun to watch play ...

    Another huge night with clutch shots late in the 4th to give Mavs a victory! Still just 19 years old. He's unbelievable.
