The owner of Dallas Mavericks revealed some details about the progress and personality of the Slovenian basketball player.
On Tuesday night, the Dallas Mavericks defeated the Orlando Magic (124: 130) away, of course again with a generous contribution from Luka Dončić. The Texans now have 17 wins and 16 losses and are on the edge of positions that bring the playoffs to a close at the end of regular time.
On Monday, before the match in Orlando, the owner of the Mavs team, Mark Cuban, was a guest on the popular show The Herd on the FS1 network with the famous host Colin Cowherd. Doncic’s progress surprised many in the US and Cowherd asked Cuban when he realized he had a truly phenomenal player with superstar potential in his ranks.
“I knew after five games,” Cuban said. "I saw that everyone really enjoyed playing with him. He was doing things I would never attribute to a nineteen-year-old. It was hard to believe a veteran with a decade of experience in the NBA would do something like this, let alone a rookie. As everyone says: no, you can put him in a hurry, he plays his pace, he always thinks three steps ahead of his rivals. He is aware of where everyone else is on the court. "
The American billionaire admitted that even after Dončić's excellent rookie season, he still had some doubts about the Slovenian organizer of the game: "I doubted whether he would improve during the break between the seasons. He improved every year, always adding something to his repertoire. For me, that's the true value of a superstar. "
In Dallas, Dirk Nowitzki was the first basketball name for many years. Dončić is always compared to the legendary German, but they are not similar only on the floor. "Dirk has such a good heart ... Luka is very similar to him. We realized that you just must allow such athletes to express themselves in the community. I think Luka learned a lot from Dirk in that sense," Cuban explained.
Cowherd also asked Cuban if he was worried about attracting big stars to Dallas, where, at least those most famous free agents, have not gone in years. "Everyone will want to play with Luka. He has a special personality; he makes everything on the pitch better. Attracting players doesn't worry me at all," said Dallas Mavericks owner.
