NBA rumors: Luka Doncic: 'Scoring is easier in the NBA'

Luka Doncic: European basketball is more team basketball, more tactics basketball. But it’s very different because the court is smaller, the fouls are different, the rules are different… Everything’s different. And you have less time. But just playing in the NBA, you have guys they’re almost impossible to guard. And that’s why the NBA is way more tougher to play. I always say scoring is easier in the NBA, just because of the amount of the different rules, the less space, the time, so that’s why I said it. Redick: So you think it’s harder to score 30 points in a yearly game than it is in an NBA game… Doncic: 100%. Redick: … But there’s better players over here. Doncic: Oh, way better players.
