”He's better than Kevin Durant” — Chris Broussard says Luka Doncic will “absolutely” have a better career than KD

Luka is toying with the league right now, but to say that he will have a better career than KD might be a bit premature.

Kevin Durant and Luka Doncic

Luka Doncic is already one of the best basketball players in the world right now. But according to outspoken NBA analyst Chris Broussard, the Slovenian national is on track to have a better career than Kevin Durant.

Wild take?

That is certainly a wild take from Broussard, but not that surprising, given his penchant for making some absurd predictions on his shows.

There is no doubt that the Dallas Mavericks star has what it takes to be the future of the NBA, as is the case with several others, such as Jayson Tatum and Ja Morant. In this campaign, he is posting NBA 2K numbers with averages of 36.0 points, 8.4 rebounds, 8.3 assists, and 1.9 steals per contest. Doncic has also been toying with defenders all season long.

Additionally, the 23-year-old is just a few months removed from carrying Dallas to a Western Conference Finals appearance, where they lost to the eventual champions Golden State Warriors. Clearly, the future is bright for the wunderkind.

Durant not yet done?

However, writing off Durant's achievements at the expense of praising Doncic may be a bit premature. He may have gone to form a superteam with Steph Curry and company some years ago, but KD was arguably the best player on two championship-winning teams.

Broussard may have also forgotten that a 24-year-old Durant led the Oklahoma City Thunder to the Finals. At the time, his co-stars Russell Westbrook and James Harden were also around that age.

Besides, the current Brooklyn Nets star is still not done adding to his Hall of Fame resume. Three years after a devastating injury, Durant is back to his old ways, averaging 31.0 points, 6.0 rebounds, 4.7 assists, and 1.9 blocks per game this season.

Oh, the 34-year-old also has three Olympic gold medals and one FIBA World Championship gold medal. Doncic certainly has a lot of work cut out for him.
