Luka Doncic and LeBron James put on a show in the first meeting, with King James posting 39 points, 16 assists, and 12 rebounds while Doncic poured in 31 points with 15 assists and 13 rebounds.
Speaking of Doncic, Heavy.com’s Brandon ‘Scoop B’ Robinson was recently a guest on the ‘A Different Lenz Podcast‘ with Katrina Plummer, JR Gamble and Mark Williams. The panel talked about how the reigning NBA Rookie of the Year has taken the league by storm. Robinson was asked if he thought Doncic would be where he is currently two years ago based on the early stages of his rookie season.
“The answer is no, but on the flip side, I’m not surprised,” said Robinson. “Simply because when you are a professional since were 15 or 16 years old – I read a book called Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell. To be an expert in your field, you have to put in 10 thousand hours of practicing before you know what you are doing.”
“When I look at the situation with Luka, who has been a professional for a long time. If you look at the other guys coming out of Europe like a Dirk [Nowitzki], Peja Stojakovic, the late Drazen Petrovic, or even Vlade Divac. I think a lot of these guys are playing at a younger age and are young vets, even LeBron, I think, was always a veteran, and he is American. When it relates to European ballplayers, I think there is an adjustment from the European game. The funny thing is the NBA plays a European style of basketball,” Robinson said.
