When did the Phoenix Suns and Sacramento Kings realize they made a mistake by passing on Luka Doncic in the 2018 NBA Draft?
Was it after Doncic’s miracle three at the buzzer against Portland? Perhaps his career first-triple in January did the trick?
This is not to slight Deandre Ayton or Marvin Bagley, both of whom should have productive NBA careers–but ultimately, passing on Doncic became increasingly foolish as last season wrapped up.
The start of 2019-20 has only hammered the point home.
Not only is Doncic shaping up to be the best player in his draft class (all due respect to Trae Young), but the 20-year Slovenian is already diving head-first into the All-NBA discussion.
