Is Luka Doncic the best NBA rookie since LeBron James? | First Take

Skupna raba
  • Objavljeno 11. apr. 2019
  • Will Cain, Ryan Hollins and Domonique Foxworth evaluate Luka Doncic's rookie year with the Dallas Mavericks and compare it to LeBron James' rookie season from 2003. Hollins agrees with Rick Carlisle's statement that Luka is the best rookie since LeBron, but Will and Foxworth bring up Blake Griffin and Kevin Durant as other players to consider as the best rookie since LeBron.

    I will say one thing.......I think this is the first time in the league where we are seeing a possible ROY and A MVP who are both from outside of the U.S. Not to mention one already has a superstar status and the other one seems to be very close as well. This is fantastic and all, but I think we should find a way to better develop our young players as well. And I am not saying this because Euro league players may or may not take over the nba one day, but because we have great young talent that is not always maximizing their potential as players.

    The "[insert player here] wasn't a rookie because they were drafted a season before they played their first game" argument is just stupid. The debate isn't about if the player is a basketball rookie. It's about them being an NBA rookie. And if you've never played a single game, you can't be a rookie. That's why at the end of the season last year Andre Ingram became a 32 year old ROOKIE. He had been playing professional basketball for a while, but never before in the NBA. It's so simple; I don't know why people argue against it.
