Like LeBron James’ early years with the Cleveland Cavaliers, Luka Doncic is not surrounded by a single All-Star and is still in the Western Conference finals. Given the way he has performed thus far in his short career, comparisons to James are very much warranted. 

“He has to score the basketball, he has to rebound the basketball, he has to facilitate the offense and he does that at an extremely high level and he’s learning how to control the game without dominating the game.”

Just like LeBron James’ Cavs, Luka Doncic leads his Mavs against the Golden State Warriors as the underdogs in the series. Given that the Dubs have Klay Thompson, Jordan Poole, Stephen Curry and Draymond Green among other stars, while the Mavs would be hoping for Spencer Dinwiddie and Jalen Brunson to support Doncic’s scoring prowess in the same ruthless way as they have been previously. 

Who among Warriors and Mavericks will draw first blood? All speculations will be answered ad the WC drama commences from Wednesday.
