One quick look at all the NBA's young talent will tell you that the NBA is in good hands. LeBron James, who is closing in on his 36th birthday, seems to know this more than anyone.
Ahead of his Christmas Day matchup with the Mavericks, Lakers superstar James gave some heavy praise to Luka Doncic, calling him an "exceptional talent."
"They're a very good team and Luka is an exceptional talent in our league.
He's handling being a professional in this league phenomenally."
In one of the most anticipated Christmas Day games, the Bron will be pitted up against, arguably, the best young player in the NBA.
Last season, just his second in the NBA, Luka averaged 28 points, 9.4 rebounds, and 8.8 assists on 42% shooting as he led the Mavs to the 7th seed in the West, where they lost to the LA Clippers in the first round. With the new season underway, there is a lot of optimism about how far Luka can lead the Mavericks.
There are many, including LeBron James, who will not be taking him lightly.
