Houston Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni talks with Jonathan Feigen about Luka Doncic before the game against the Dallas Mavericks:
“He’s not going to be out of control. He’ll get (to) you and lull you. He’s so strong. James and Doncic are the same way. They can just play at their speed (like) Steve Nash. Special players, they play at their speed, whatever that is”
“They’re just special players. Very honestly, it’s hard to explain. It’s hard to explain something special. (It’s a) talent. Why is the best actor the way he is? It’s a talent. It’s an X-factor you can’t explain. You can’t coach it. Some people have it; some don’t. James, Doncic, those guys have it”
Doncic is averaging 29.9 points, 10.4 rebounds and 9.7 assist, shooting 49% from the field, 35% from long range and 82% from the foul line.
