Minnesota Timberwolves guard Jeff Teague said in a recent interview that Luka Doncic is “arguably the best player in the NBA right now.” Luka Doncic has been a breakout star in his second season, nearly averaging a triple-double, which has elevated his name into the MVP conversation.
Paul Pierce has been a believer in Doncic for a while now, but he isn’t yet ready to crown him the best in the NBA because of his limited body of work. However, Pierce does acknowledge that Doncic has had one of the best seasons in the league thus far.
“He’s arguably having the best year in the NBA,” Pierce said. “He’s having one of the best seasons, but we’re talking about player.”
