That is high praise from a future Hall of Famer, but you can see why LeBron enjoys watching Doncic so much.
Doncic nearly averaged a triple-double during the regular season with 28.4 points, 9.1 rebounds and 8.7 assists. He’s a multi-dimensional player and one of the game’s biggest stars. He had 33 or more points in four of the Mavericks’ seven games against the Phoenix Suns last round.
In addition to amazing skills, Doncic has shown he has a great winner’s mentality from the time he came into the NBA. He’s easy to root for, so we get why LeBron is such a big fan.
