Tony Parker Argues That Luka Doncic Shouldn’t Be Compared To Dirk Nowitzki Until He Wins A Championship


Luka Doncic stands out not only as one of the best players in the NBA today but also as one of the greatest European players of all time. Consequently, various comparisons have surfaced, with many even likening him to legendary power forward Dirk Nowitzki.

This particular parallel has been drawn since the early stages of Doncic’s career, partly due to their shared European history and his succession as the Dallas Mavericks’ best player following Nowitzki’s tenure.

While many find the Doncic-Nowitzki comparison justifiable, San Antonio Spurs legend Tony Parker begs to differ. According to the former NBA point guard, Doncic needs to hoist an NBA trophy before the two can be legitimately compared, especially when it comes to the debate of the greatest European player ever.

Per Eurohoops:


“In my opinion, for a player to be part of the debate for the greatest European player ever, they need to win a championship. That’s just my personal view. I love the GOAT discussion. I always have the GOAT discussion with my brother, my friends. In my opinion, if you don’t know what it takes to win a championship, you shouldn’t be part of the GOAT discussion,” the former San Antonio Spurs star said.
