Potential No. 1 Pick Luka Doncic Literally Crosses Defender Out Of His Shoes


NBA fans always love a new prospect, and 18-year old Luka Doncic has already got the attention of NBA scouts throughout the association.

Doncic, who currently plays for European powerhouses Real Madrid, is flourishing despite his tender age. He performed brilliantly for his home nation of Slovenia during this summer’s EuroBasket, helping them win the title. He averaged 14.3 points, 8.6 rebounds and 3.6 assists and is already considered the number one draft pick in next year’s NBA Draft.

NBA scouts are drooling at the potential of Doncic, who already stands at 6”8’ and is reportedly still growing. At 6”8’, he may be tall, but Doncic can also play the point guard position. Doncic is eligible for the NBA draft in 2018, but it is reported that Real Madrid will offer the Slovenian born international a substantial five-year contract that could see him stay in Europe until he’s 21 years old. This may be tougher than they anticipate, as Doncic is seen as potentially one of the best Europeans prospects of his generation.

After becoming the youngest player to ever debut for Real Madrid at just 16 years old, he has continued to impress and ride the upward spiral of development in the fundamentals of European basketball.

Now, during Real Madrid’s EuroLeague game against Anadolu Efes, Doncic was literally crossing his defener out of his shoes.
