The first thing I did was look at the total number of times each All-NBA level player had been explicitly mentioned (@’d) on Twitter by other players since the start of the year. James led the way with 247 different mentions from current and retired players. Giannis received just 37— about the same as Luka Doncic (38) and barely more than his teammate Khris Middleton (30).
Luka Doncic is eligible for the designated rookie maximum extension after earning All-NBA honors for the second time during his rookie contract. No player coming off his rookie contract in the running for a maximum contract has ever turned it down. Despite the complete organizational overhaul in Dallas, look for him to sign the extension, which he already hinted towards accepting. Probability of extending: Strong.
What do you guys see that makes Porzingis a perfect fit for Luka Doncic? Harrison: “The skill set that he brings matches with Luka, but I also think that the thing about Kristaps is … people put a lot on him in terms of the reason why their season ended but he was doing what he was told to do. He’s actually a team player and I think we’re just gonna put him in position to succeed.”
Storyline: Doncic-Porzingis Dynamic
Would the Mavs benefit from Luka not initiating? Harrison: “Really with great players, the good thing about them is they’re so great, so they can do so much. Getting him off the ball early on is a good thing. Down the stretch, there’s no doubt about it, you want the ball in his hands, I mean that’s what he does. But if he has to do that every play, every possession, that’s a grind, and that’s wear on your body. Getting him off the ball, getting him some easy stuff will be a good thing.”
Argentina, the winner of the 2004 Olympic tournament and the 2019 World Cup silver medalist, will begin the games in Tokyo against reigning world champion Spain, Luka Doncic’s Slovenia and host Japan in Group C. The top two teams from each of the three groups will automatically advance to the quarterfinals while two third-placed teams will also qualify based on ranking criteria.

Shooting guards: Nicolas Brussino: 2.05 – 27 – Granada. Leandro Bolmaro: 2.00 – 20 – Barcelona. Small Forwards: Gabriel Deck: 1.98 – 26 – Oklahoma City Thunder.
