It has already started, almost a year ago. Put me in the believer camp.
I'm not buying the Luka Doncic hype. It's very clear that he is a very good basketball player and will be a very good player in the NBA but I see role player/ 3rd option not super star.There is no way he goes #1. Marvin Bagley will have to be awful at Duke and Michael Porter would have to stink as well for that to happen.
Seems like I have heard such hype on ESPN before. Hmmmm...let me think.Emanuel MudiayDante ExumDragen BenderYup, I have.

But none had even remotely the same carrier as Doncic at the same age. Bender at 18 couldn't get 10mpg for annawful team , Exum and Mundiay played against nobodies Doncic is a key player for a top 4 team in Europe (for second season) and just won the European championship being Robyn to Dragic' Batman. Who had a similar CV ?He may end up the second coming of Milisic , I can't read the future but today he is the best 18year old since ever , at least in Europe.
I don't go on ESPN and read their articles. They're full of shet. I have a problem with them, their integrity and their content. They are a bad sitcom.

I hate it when sports media say things like that. This definitely isn't just an NBA thing, as almost all sports media have elements of stupid hyperbole. I get that it's their jobs to get clicks and be over the top, but it's silly. I love Doncic as a player, but it's not like there have never been players with skill sets like his. There have been prospects with playmaking superior to his, ball handling superior to his, and scoring superior to his.
