    if that's how he really feels then Luka won't finish this extension as a Dallas Maverick.

    Good for Luka for getting his bag, but I'll be shocked if he doesn't demand a trade within a few years. This was their last offseason to bring in help before his max extension kicked in. Moving forward all they're going to have to bring him help is the MLE and the possibility of trading Porzingis? Good luck with that.

    This, btw, is exactly what I don't want to happen to the Rockets. That's why I want another top 5 pick this year. I feel like we are already in a slightly better position in that we have both Green and Porter Jr who have All-Star potential, and maybe even Sengun, but I'd sure feel better if we had another shot or two at an All-Star to grow with Jalen Green. You do NOT want to be in the position in the modern NBA that the Mavs are now in where they have one transcendent superstar with no help. Nobody is going to be shocked when this kid demands a trade to LA, Miami, Brooklyn, etc in a few years.

    Yeah I am not sure this is going to be a healthy long term relationship. Seems to me that Luka has a lot of miles on his body for a young man his age, and add to that the fact that Dallas cannot get any top notch free agents, it’s going to be Luka and a bunch of other dudes. They will need to build through trades, or pull a Spurs and have a really bad season due to injuries and luck into another all time talent (a laTim Duncan) to pair with Luka.

    Otherwise, Luka is going to end up like Harden- carrying a bunch of average to below average “dudes” and getting blamed when those bunch of dudes cannot win a chip.

    That Porzingis trade will probably end up being the reason why Luka will leave Dallas. Not only has Porzingis not taken the leap to fulfill his unicorn hype, the Mavericks double down on the OTHER guy they got in that Porzingis trade by bringing back Tim Hardaway Jr. at the tune of $18 million a year. They've basically committed about 40% of their entire cap to Porzingis and Hardaway.

    Yeah. It's clear those injuries did a number on him and he'll never fully recover. He's just not the player he was before. It's some Ralph Sampson like stuff.

    Luka deserves it. I do hope he lays off the croissants, but he's an exceptional talent. It kills me Dallas got him but oh well.

    3 year in nba but already 7 year pro. He has more mileage on that body than most 22. Unless a rare case like Lebron, his body probably will break down sooner than most guys his age in a few years.

    Especially with that usage rate. Kidd is not going to preserve Doncic like Bud does with Giannis.

    Such an honor for Slovenia that executives and owners chose to visit us and Luka and sign a contract here. Well done Cuban. Respect.
    As for Luka.. great for him. So happy for him. Worked hard to get here. Rather on his game, he has to work on his tantrums and mental stability in next months.
