    The fact that Luka thinks this is some scary stuff. He's almost averaging a trip dub in his second year and he doesn't think he's playing that good. He's going to be incredible. He already is, he's really really going to be special.

    This dude is unbelievable. Everybody doubted if he would transition into the nba from europe well. Because he wasn t even so dominant in europe in my opinion. But he s playing like he is owning the nba . He is up there with lebron giannis amd steph .

    1 question, where is his defense??????? It's funny no one talks about that about him. No defense is why they are low in the rankings. just like Dirk no defense but a great offensive player. Dirk won one Chip due to a Lebron Meltdown?????? I'm not hating on Luka, I think he's a Great Player. but stop making him great for the wrong reasons!
