    Luka Doncic admitted he watched a lot of Larry Bird film growing up, but didn't feel like he deserved the comparison to the Boston Celtics legend quite yet.

To be fair, you can’t compare Larry to Luka. He was still playing against kids at Luka’s age.

If Luka gets that field goal percentage up, he's doing just fine by his standards 👍🏾 47% is still pretty crazy efficient though XD

You can't compare a stat line in today's NBA which doesn't play defense at all, their is more spacing and offensive players can't be touched. Plus, an assist is counted differently from Birds era. Now the player who receives the pass can dribble up to 5 times amd score and the assist will count. In Birds era a player who receives the ball cannot dribble more than 1 before scoring. So, apples and oranges. BTW, L. Doncic has put better stats than LeBron in their 1st three seasons and at the same age.

I'll say this in english. Luka, needs some coaching for when speaking with media in english. Or beter not. Thing is, he thinks in slovenian, when he speaks english. Thats why he constantly refers to "you know". Thats how you honestly talk to one of us in slovenian. You base your sentence, to "you know", then you develope your thoughts, and wait for honest reply, if it comes. Kid is a jewel. Handles media narcissism like a pro. "You know"... I helped to explain it to you.

The reason you can't compare him to Larry Legend is because there is NO DEFENSE in this NBA.

European standard of humbleness. Here in Europe we just love the game and admire the great ones. I mean ALL of them, because there are many of them. Including Larry Bird (my personal favourite :). For info -> we don't care about goats, and "my goat is better than your goat" crap narrative. To sum up -> even if Luka wins some chips, MVPs etc., even HoF -> he still will not even take this comparison of him to Bird into serious consideration.

Definitely a good player but cmon y’all the defense in Bird’s time was insane, elbows to the face were a usual theme back then, everyone is easily averaging 25pts a game these days.

I met Larry Bird. The man was massive. Don't let the short shorts and skinny guys back then fool you. It is a different league now. Luka is the closest thing to Bird there is, but Bird was unreal and won 3 straight MVPs back when the league was much tougher. Luka is my favorite player and only 22. You can't make that comparison yet, but make no mistake about it, Luka has Hall of Famer written all over him. Too bad the Mavs owner is such an ass.

@Sunny Darko I like KP but yeah i do see him getting traded if he doesn't stay healthy. The best ability is avaliablilty. I love draymond, the heart and soul of the team. This season he proved that he doesn't need kd or klay to be an elite passer. As the season goes on, his shooting percentages will average out but right now he is shooting 39/22/71. Thats awful! Haha

whats your point? its how the game evolved over time? would most of the players today play the same way if they were born 50 years ago? I dont think so...with that being said, since the training, diets etc also proressed over time, most of the players today are much better athletes then 30-40 years ago, on average. There will always be freaks and hard af workers though that just stand out...

It's always the same storytelling. U compare a young guy to a legend, the young guy responds ty but he is a legend I've to go a long way. These narratives sound so trivial and trite. It gets boring after u heard that already so many times. And by the way, why is he compared to Larry Bird? Because both r white? I mean if u look it up u will find so many other players statistics wise that have similar numbers. I don't get it. Media is making things up again.
