Luka Doncic believes Stephen Curry is still a better player than him

curry vs doncic (1)

The Mavericks beat the Warriors last night behind another monster performance from Luka Doncic, who finished the game with 31 points, 12 rebounds, and 15 assists. Another thing that is important to mention is the fact he did it in only 30 minutes of action. Doncic was bringing the crowd at the Chase Center into a frenzy despite the fact he is playing on the opposing team.

In an interview with Nick Friedell from ESPN, Doncic was asked about the comparisons people are already making between the two players. The former two time MVP was in attendance last night to witness Doncic put on a show. Luka, on the other hand, opposed any notion that he is better than Curry. Even though he is having an MVP type of season at such an early age, Doncic still believes Curry is a better player than him.

"He's shooting way better than me. He's a better player. He's been in the league for a long time, he's somebody that everybody looks up [to], everybody wants to play like him. I remember last year after the draft, I practiced once with him, and it was crazy. He couldn't miss. He can't miss. And that was like something I'll always remember -- practice with him."

Doncic was extremely modest when asked about the comparisons between him and Curry, but the truth is that he is a much better player than Curry was at his age. At the age of 20, Curry was still playing college basketball, while Doncic is a legitimate candidate for the MVP award this season. He is almost averaging a triple-double in only his second year in the NBA while maintaining a remarkable efficiency rarely seen before. If Doncic remains healthy, an MVP award is a sure thing in his career.
