Stephen A. Smith, Max Kellerman and Jay Williams debate who LeBron James will pass the torch to after his NBA career is over, Max names Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic as the front-runner.
“Luka certainly has to be in the conversation. He, like LeBron, at the same age gave you a feeling not that you’re just watching an extraordinary player but that you’re watching a genius. You know, the way you watched Magic and Bird and the way some other real great passers like Jason Kidd at times made you think ‘boy, this is something different’. Luka gives you that feeling. He’s like a basketball savant. Different than anyone else. And given his age, I think it’s possible that you’re also looking at Luka. I think the best three candidates are one, Zion and then the two are either Giannis or Luka.”
