Paul George On Luka Doncic: "He’s A Special Talent."


It may only be December, but there's basically no argument when it comes to picking this season's Rookie of The Year. Coming out of Europe firing on all cylinders, Luka has quickly become the league's next big thing, averaging 19.6 points, 6.5 rebounds, and 5.1 assists for the season.

It seems Paul George is the latest to realize the talent Doncic has proved to be.

“He's good. He’s got an advantage over most rookies. He’s played professionally a lot sooner than a lot of these guys, and it shows. He has a veteran, pro-level game. He’s a special talent. He has game.”

Luka has received a lot of good praise lately. PG isn't the first and he won't be the last. LeBron James admitted very recently that he would love to play with Luka, and Warriors' stars Draymond Green Steph Curry called him a "problem."

Clearly, the Mavericks got a good one. And the Hawks, who traded Luka for Trae Young, must be wondering where they'd be had they kept in in July.
