Hey, peeps,

I don't usually make threads, but when I do I want to talk about the possibility that my countryman, Luka Doncic, goes 1st in the 2018 draft.

Anyone familiar with him, his game and his prospects?

Some links and videos. Oh, he turned 18 this February.

Would appreciate any insight, since we're all incredibly biased here (and don't follow much college ball).

Wanted to bump this, since he has added to his resume in the past three months.

He was named to the best 5 at the European Basketball Championship, where our country won the gold.

He has also been the best player in Europe by a considerable margin this season: http://www.euroleague.net/main/statistics

18 years old.

Anyone have him on his/her radar?

He's been on my radar for roughly a year. Frankly, I think he's Top 3 pending athleticism issues.

But the NCAA season is SO early.

Otherwise, stud fit for Zo.

Thanks for the reply, Mike! Hopefully you get the chance to chime in again during the season.

So, what are the chances that the best (at least statistically) player of the second best league in the world (at age 19!) goes 1st? Should he declare.

If he stays any longer, his draft stock will drop.

So yeah, Real just won the Euroleague against all odds and Doncic added the following to his resume during this weekend:
1. Euroleague rising star.
2. Euroleague Regular Season MVP.
3. Euroleague 1st Team.
4. Euroleague Champion.
5. Euroleague Final Four MVP.

He is by far and away the best player in the draft, so he should go first right?
