Considering all the young superstars lighting up the basketball court these days, it's safe to say the NBA is in good hands. Between Zion, Trae, Luka, and expected ROY Ja Morant, there are no shortage of young studs in the NBA realm today.

But if you had to pick just one of them, who would it be? While some might be inclined to take Zion or Trae Young, NBA executives around the league picked the sure thing (Luka Doncic) over everyone else.

“Luka is a known quantity as a total stud,” one Eastern Conference scout said, “so you have to take the sure thing.”

“Luka has size and elite playmaking and shooting right this second,” a Western Conference executive said. “He impacts winning. I believe his game is not only sustainable, but has the ability to continue to get better.”

When it comes to a budding superstar, perhaps nobody in the league is more appealing than Luka. In just two seasons, he has career averages of 28.7 points, 9.3 rebounds, and 8.7 assists per game on 46% shooting.

During this most recent campaign, he recorded seven triple-doubles, tying Magic Johnson’s record of triple-doubles in an age-20 season, in just 14 games. He's also the youngest player ever to average 29.9 points, 10.6 rebounds and 9.4 in a season.

What he is doing at such a young age, with minimal NBA experience, just goes to show how special he truly is and it's easy to see why NBA executives love his game so much.

The only question with him is just how much he will grow and develop his skills as he puts more experience under his belt.
