During a fun question and answer session with the good folks of Twitter, LeBron James shared which other NBA player he loved to watch.
Amongst the many numerous questions that were lobbed his way, LeBron had the opportunity to answer a pretty interesting one that pertained to his contemporaries on other teams. LeBron had a shot to answer which NBA player under the age of 25 is his favorite player to watch.
In response, LeBron emphatically tossed out the answer that Luka Doncic is his favorite player in the NBA.
Who can really blame him for enjoying seeing Doncic dominate?
LeBron James shares that he does indeed have a favorite NBA player to watch
The Dallas Mavericks struck gold when they were able to land Doncic and he’s been thrilling to watch as he has ascended as a star. It’s also worth noting that Doncic has also been a huge reason for the recent improvement his team has gone through.
While many will be quick to break out jokes about LeBron tampering and trying to improve the Los Angeles Lakers (and some folks will very earnestly believe that’s what LeBron is doing here), it’s honestly fair to give him the benefit of the doubt in this case. Few NBA fans can honestly take a look at what Doncic does on a daily basis and claim that he hasn’t been a joy to watch.
It makes sense that some of his rivals and colleagues and contemporaries would have a lot of respect for him.
Doncic has Dallas in the Western Conference Finals and this Mavericks team could possibly end up in the Finals if their star plays up to his full potential in this series against the Golden State Warriors.
