We Haven’t Seen Anyone Like Luka Dončić Since LeBron James

FiveThirtyEight (11/21/2019)
  • LeBron James (Lakers) and Luka Dončić (Dallas Mavericks) are the only two NBA players currently averaging at least 25 points, 7.5 rebounds and 7.5 assists per game.
  • 20 year-old Luka is the youngest to ever average those stats and his seven triple-doubles match Magic Johnson’s age-20 record.
  • Luka was a decorated youth making his professional debut in Spain’s Liga ACB (2nd best basketball league) at 16 and becoming MVP at 18.
  • However, Luka must maintain performance over 15 years to reach LeBron status.
