Draymond Green and Stephen Curry think Luka Doncic is the next big thing in the NBA


The Dallas Mavericks rookie Luka Doncic is looking like the next big thing in the NBA. After 30 games into this season, you would think Luka is a 10-year veteran and not a 19-year-old kid. The wunderkind from Slovenia has taken the league by storm and is definitely the rookie of the year so far and there are even chances he will be in this year's all-star game.

Last night the Mavericks lost in a close game to the Warriors, and Luka once again had himself a game against the best team in the NBA. He finished with 19 points and 5 assists shooting efficiently from the field. Luka's talent has brought the attention of the opposing Draymond Green who only had positive things to say about the kid from Slovenia

"That dude [is] good. He got it. He is going to be a problem. He [is] already a problem. But he gonna be really good for a long time. You kind of have the questions like, 'Oh, can he do that in the NBA like he's doing it in the EuroLeague?' He can. He's exciting to watch. He'll be good for a long time. He's kind of lifted that franchise."

Stephen Curry also gave his thoughts about Doncic since he believes the level of basketball IQ Doncic possesses will turn him into a big star sooner than later.

"He's very talented. He's smart, high-IQ guy, obviously.[He] has a lot of confidence to his game, a lot of swag to his game. He came out firing with some patented moves that he showed, but he's a guy that just knows what he's doing out there. Obviously, he's a rookie, but he's found a way to impose his will most nights, and it's going to be good to see him develop in this league and a star."
