Nor is it the first time that the name of Luka Doncic and the one of Michael Jordan appears in the same sentence. The Slovenian has been knocking down some of the records of the Bulls myth and has won the comparison with some of the great legends of the NBA. However, until now no one had equated him with the considered best player of all time.
He has been the coach of the Dallas Mavericks, Jason Kidd, the one who has put the former Real Madrid player at the height of Michael Jordan when it comes to reading rival defenses and for making basketball easier for all his teammates.
“Luka just makes the game simple and fun, that’s why you have to give him credit. He has the talent to go two-on-one, but he keeps it simple and then gives us a little more gas on the defensive end. He does the easy thing,” said the Mavericks coach before referring to the six-time NBA champion.
When the older ones keep it simple, it’s more fun. And that’s what happens with Luka
“You look at Michael Jordan. When he was young, he tried to beat the Detroit Pistons by himself. He couldn’t do it. He got help. From there he made the game easier and everything was easier for him. the simple is more fun. And that’s what happens with Luka, “concluded Kidd, who also compared his pupil with Magic Johnson and Giannis Antetokounmpo.
