    Luka Dončić went for 27 points against Milwaukee the other night, his 35th game of the season with 25+ points. Dončić’s 35 games with 25+ points leads the @NBA this season and he currently has the most (81 games) in the league since the beginning of last season.

    do these guys even watch games? Devin has never taken Suns to the playoff and Luka has already done it by himself in 2nd year.. without chris paul they would look same as last year, so he is not 1, even Tatum is above him , as for Zion lets see him finish this year on the court and then talk, same with LaMelo he played so few games, other teams have not started to put him in scouting report yet, and all teams game-plan for Luka, lets see if Lamelo can adjust if and when he gets there, in fairness what Mitchel does translates to wins so .. 1. Luka, 2 Tatum , 3 Mitchel 4 Ja Morant and 5 could be Karl Anthony Towns or Devin Booker, both are talented and both cant take the team anywhere on their own.... Although come to think of it KAT is 25 already?

    Alan is crazy ....his analysis stinks...



    Anthony Edwards potential is far greater than LaMelo. Putting up over 20+ points a game where he has to be the #1 and #2 scorer on the team. Under the conditions he’s under at 19 he’s amazing. If Devon Booker needed a point guard to get notice, put a pg with Edwards and skies the limit.

    He really put Booker, when the Sun's have been building around him forever and they still trash. Had to bring in the Point GOD who imo is the franchise player there now. Booker is great but he isn't over Luka, stop it. Zion shouldn't be over Luka either, dude literally missed majority of his rookie season cos he was injured. He's just as or even less durable.

    @Darryl Davis lmao you dont watch mavs games? the fact that you mention were stacked & porzingis already invalidates you

  62. Darryl Davis

    Darryl DavisПре 6 дана

    I think D Book is around 4th. That's accurate and fair. Doncic however is not carrying a team by him self. Sure he can probably take a bad team from 20 wins to 35 wins but that Dallas team is actually somewhat stacked with Porzingis, Brunson, Meli, Hardaway, and several others with length and defense. I don't see a KG in the bunch. I see a lot of players that shoot a lot and like to score but don't dominate at all levels and areas of the game. The NBA hasn't seen a KG in many years. Still I only see 2 players that can do everything and win that is Leonard and James. Everyone else that is winning is on a stacked team.

  63. Darryl Davis

    When this man put Lamelo over JT 2:20 seconds in. I already knew this list was gonna be garbage. Tatum is a franchise player. Imagine putting Zion and D Book above Luka. Luka is in his 3rd season and he's already shown he can carry a team to the playoffs. Book is about to make the playoffs for the first time and he had to do it with another all-star. Zion is a baby, hasn't even played 80 games yet. Definitely not putting him over Luka. Luka has the potential to be a top 10 player all-time.

    Frankly, if you replace doncic with booker in Dallas, I'm not sure Dallas makes the playoff. That should be the acid test for a franchise player. Booker was the guy in Phoenix for a while and didn't do anything. Even with Ayton, he couldn't do much. Would argue that Rubio and now CP3 have more to do with the Sun's success than Booker, just based on empirical evidence.

    So your argument against Luka, who has missed like 10 games in his career, was can his body hold up. But then you didn’t mention it for zion and put him a head of him, who is easily the biggest question mark for a young player in the league long term. His knees might not hold up, that’s a fact
