Mavs sophomore sensation Luka Doncic has been compared to a lot of players since his debut in 2018. Doncic has already been compared to LeBron, Dirk, Brandon Roy, and countless others. Thanks to Danny Green, we can add a new name to the list.
According to Green, he sees Doncic as a “bigger Lou Williams.”
Interesting Luka Doncic comparison from Danny Green, who said the Lakers’ key is to keep him off the foul line: “I compare him to a bigger Lou Will, where he gets to that left hand, and he gets that step back or fadeway, and you can’t really touch him.”

While maybe not the most common comparison, Luka should feel flattered by it, nonetheless. Despite never making an All-Star team, Lou Williams has always been one of the NBA best pure scorers and is a 3x Sixth Man of The Year winner.
That’s pretty great company to be in, especially for a 20-year-old in his second season. But for some, Luka has already passed Williams. As the face of the Mavericks, he is having a career season while the team continues to be squarely in the playoff picture. At this point, there may not really be a comparison that suits him anymore.
