Q: Do you see Luka Doncic as the player capable of changing the narrative on Europeans in the NBA? Rony Seikaly: Luka Doncic is one in a million. I think that he’s the best white player to ever play the game, regardless of being European. Period. He’s Larry Bird 2.0. To me, LeBron James is Magic Johnson 2.0 and Luka Doncic is a more modern version of the way Larry Bird played. I’m talking about him as a basketball player and a pure talent, not in terms of wins and championships. Now, in order to be the best player, you’ll have to back it up with multiple championships, like Larry Bird has. To get into the conversation with him, you’d better have 4-5 championships under your belt. That would staple him as the best player in the world. I think Luka is a combination of Bird and Pete Maravich.
Fans will be able to bid on the plaques of Magic Johnson, Julius “Dr. J” Erving and ‘His Airness’ himself, Michael Jordan.

Justin Kubatko: James Harden is just the seventh player in NBA history to follow up a 60-point game with a 40-point game. The others to do so are Wilt Chamberlain, Pete Maravich, Michael Jordan, Tracy McGrady, Kobe Bryant, and Kemba Walker.
