Luka doesn’t show a lot of his personality in media interviews – and he may get there, he’s very young – but what is he like? As someone who gets to interact with him behind the scenes, what are your impressions of him as a person? Mark Cuban: He’s a lot more street-savvy than people give him credit for. He’s a lot smarter than people give him credit for. He’s very business-oriented. He understands markets and marketing very, very well. He understands his brand and his brand’s positioning very, very well. He’s really smart when it comes to business. He obviously doesn’t have an MBA, but he’s a lot smarter at business than a lot of MBAs I know. And on the court, actually, what we saw from Luka was how hard he worked over the summer and it paid off on the court. That’s who he is. And that’s the most exciting part about Luka: not just his talent, but how hard he works to improve his talent.
