Mark Jackson Says Luka Doncic Should Already Be Part Of The Top 75 NBA Players List

During his three-year tenure in the league, Luka Doncic has delighted fans, rivals, and analysts. The Slovenian guard is a unique talent that goes off day in and day out with the Dallas Mavericks. 

Even though he entered the NBA surrounded by doubts, he proved the haters wrong, becoming one of the future faces of the league in Dallas. Luka is expected to be one of the greatest players ever when he finishes his NBA career, but some people believe he's already part of the best stars the league has seen. 

Former NBA player Mark Jackson recently claimed Doncic already belongs to the top 75 players list the league will release at some point next season. Talking with Shannon Sharpe, the former Golden State Warriors head coach explained that Luka's talent is so incredible that he already earned a spot on the list.

“The one guy that you named to me, I think, could well very be on the top 75 player list that comes out pretty soon. And people say will there be a sleeper that’s young, but Luka Doncic is the real deal. When you look at what he’s been able to do early on in his career, he has got it. If it was me voting, he’s on the list,” said Jackson.

This is a huge compliment, but not everybody will agree with Jackson. Luka is indeed a terrific player that will make a lot of noise for the rest of his career, but after only three years in the competition, it's hard to put him among the best players ever to do it. 

Still, Jackson made some solid points to put Doncic on this list. It remains to be seen if the people in charge of voting will consider the 22-year-old part of this list. Seeing his current level, Luka will at least be a top 15 player ever once his career is finished.
