Luka Doncic Crapped All Over The Difficulty Level of The NBA As Compared To Europe
Luka Doncic is a boniefied star in the NBA and anybody with two working eyes can see that he’ll be here for years to come.
The Dallas Mavericks rookie is easily the front-runner to take home the rookie of the year trophy, but that seems rather tame to a man who took home multiple MVP awards and championships overseas.
Just recently, Luka compared scoring in the NBA to scoring in Europe, and he pretty much took a huge dump on the difficulty level in the states as compared to being back home.
“Here (in the NBA) it’s easier to score compared to Europe, of course,” Doncic said in an interview with Spanish network Movistar+, according to Eurohoops’ Alex Madrid. “In Europe, the court is smaller and here there is the three-seconds rule. I think it’s easier to score here.”
Luka has somewhat of a point, even though the talent pool is much greater in the states than in Eurpoe. Professional b-ball courts in Europe are measured at 91.9 by 49.2 feet as opposed to the NBA’s 94 by 50 feet.
Doncic also referenced the 3-second rule that forces players to stay out of the paint in the states, but no such rule exists in Europe.
The 19-year-old averaged 14.5 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 4.3 assists with Real Madrid, and he is currently putting up 20.6 points, seven rebounds, and 5.5 assists during his rookie campaign.
