I admit I haven't watched full UCLA games featuring Lonzo Ball. I saw many game highlights throughout the year and draftexpress scouting videos. He seems like he will go in the 2/4 range. But watching Dončić play, I can't really find any advantage Ball would have over him.Dončić is younger, has played against superior competition for years, same goes for coaching, has better size (point forward potential), wider frame, seems a bit stronger, has a polished shooting form with great arc, doesn't shy away from contact, hits his free throws and his father was a bball player too, so he has that pedigee. He goes for the rebounds, pushes it up the floor on every oportunity and has the flashiness that lights up the crowd. Both are good, but not elite athletes that have OK, but not great lenght. They also look like they could play in any system regardless of their teamates, since they are versatile (can drible, pass and shoot).Some might percieve me biased (he is not my countrymen), but I don't see that one (or any) thing that might put Ball over him. I am realy excited with the small posibility we might get our hands on this kid. If you hace seen Dončić play, please tell mem am I missing something?
My only question is about his athletic ability and how it affects his defence. I don't think he is fast enough to guard the Walls and the Irvings....
You think he can?
Apologies guys I don't see him having any GOAT potential most of you guys see he has, it's just a gut feeling. I do see the makings of a very good player though, but I would pick Porter, Ayton and Bamba ahead of him. I hope the Celtics don't draft him and let the suns draft him to pair with Bender lol(if my gut feeling is right Doncic will have "busted" with such high expectations)

Like comparing Ray Allen to Alen Ray! I said it soo many times but i will say it again.... Bender was an end of the bench player for the worse Maccabi team of the last 20 years playing in a average league. Doncic on the other hand is KEY player for a team that will probably win the Spanish league (best league not named NBA) and the Euroleague.
Is doncic more fournierOr manu?
