Paul Pierce believes that Luka Doncic is one of the most talented players in the NBA already, despite this season being just his second in the NBA. After a stellar rookie season, Doncic looks poised to turn in another impressive campaign in Dallas alongside Kristaps Porzingis as the Mavs look to get back to the playoffs.
And Paul doesn’t think the pressure of being in the spotlight with affect Doncic because of his pro career overseas giving him plenty of experience at a high level.
“He has already been in the limelight for years,” Pierce said. “He has been a pro before he got to the NBA for multiple years, so he’s stepping into a situation like ‘I’m used to this. I’ve been playing against grown men since (I) was probably 12-13 years old.’ And Luka, in my eyes, is one of the top-five most talented players in the league right now and must-watch tv.”
