LeBron James in no new in giving compliment to players that deserves it. This time the 4-time NBA MVP,  decided to highlight everything that makes Dallas Maverick super star, Luka Doncic, a special talent in today's NBA. This was during a new episode of HBO ‘The Shop’ making emphasis on Doncic size and his ability to move the ball as well as he does. LeBron also talked about missing the playoffs last season and how he can use his voice for people that can't.

“His size. I mean he’s gigantic. A 6-8 point guard. He’s 225 pounds. He has the ball on a string. And more importantly, his vision. That’s why I love him,” James said about Doncic who is coming off his third All-NBA First-Team campaign with averages of 28.4 points, 9.1 rebounds, and 8.7 assists. At 23, he led the Mavericks to a Western Conference Finals appearance that ended with the team being eliminated by the eventual NBA champion Golden State Warriors.

LeBron also took his time to elaborate on the type o game that Luka has, and explain why he has been so dominant, “He can control a game. He doesn’t even have to shoot. Literally, he’ll walk the ball up ten straight times and get to his spot every single time, just because of his pace, he knows when he comes off a pick and roll if they’re hard showing or if they hedging or if they dropping the pick and roll." continued the Lakers' player.  

Let's not forget that a leak from the NBA schedule put the Los Angeles Lakers playing the Dallas Mavericks on Christmas Day as the purples and gold will try to avoid another defeat during the holiday. Thankfully James has a 6-2 advantage over Doncic in career head-to-head match ups, according to Land of Basketball. The two only faced off once last season, with James putting up 26 points and Doncic scoring 25 points as the Mavericks came away with a 109-104 win in Los Angeles.

The team has fell short in a number of games, at a point that they have a record of eight wins and 15 losses since the last time they missed a Christmas day game. However, the bright side for Los Angeles is that their last victory on a 25th of December went against the Mavs.
