Slovenia in the final, lead by a 18 years old Doncic, beating the great team of Spain 92-72. Doncic end up with 11 points 12 rebs 8 ast. I'm officially impressed

And 0 turnovers. He is officially a beast and not draft eligible yet.

At least from the stats it looks like he was the best player in a game with both Gasols, Dragic, and Rubio.  I've been saying  that he would be in the rotation on any NBA team today, and a starter on most of them (including potentially the Celtics).  I think today's game supports that argument.

I don't see him going later than the second pick, personally.  He's still the top player on my board, even with Bagley.  He's a basketball savant.  Best draft prospect since Davis.

Dragić, Luka's roommate at the competition - "Luka is so young but cautious and calm. He is incredibly mature on the parquet, and in the room, he still watches cartoons and series like "Friends"".

Our journalists said that Dragić took him under his wing.

Very impressed by him, see a little Hondo if he improves on his speed but I can see him falling to 3 if Bagley and Porter go insane in college. Either way we can possibly have 3 prospects that can be near locks for superstars and 2 more that have the potential, really hope that Brooklyn does well and the Lakers pick yields us a top 5 pick that's not 1 ;D.

Mature and cartoons in the same sentence seems like an oxymoron. Haha

...on the parquet... - is the key. 😀
Since he is 18, I guess probably those lascive mangas.

Doncic and Dragic vs Bogdanovic and Marjanovic tonight. Bogdanovic has recently won highest club title and will come to Kings as the conqueror of Europe if he wins European championship too. Doncic, on the other hand, has still one more year in Europe but this is great chance for him to win a title for Slovenia.

I believe Gandhi is the only person who knew about real democracy — not democracy as the right to go and buy what you want, but democracy as the responsibility to be accountable to everyone around you. Democracy begins with freedom from hunger, freedom from unemployment, freedom from fear, and freedom from hatred.

Wow that efficiency.

Doncic has been my guy since day 1. Not sure how well he fits in Boston, but he's too good

Yeah — I don’t see how anyone thinks he isn’t the top prospect available.

I was going to say he could play the 2, sliding Jaylen to the 3, with a starting lineup of Kyrie, Doncic, Brown, Tatum, Horford, but then remembered Hayward.  In other words, the thought of Doncic all year might help ease the pain of Hayward’s injury (my pain that is, not his).  Since Hayward does exist, I think Doncic could come off the bench initially, and be a capable 6th man from day one, spelling virtually everyone but Horford.
