The Slovenian player Luka Doncic, the Dallas Mavericks superstar, wasn't able to play against Team USA in the recent showcase game between the two teams, but he has played and given a backpass that has gone viral.

The Luka Doncic dime has gone viral and many have been impressed with what the Slovenian star has made, making the NBA world wonder which other players are capable of giving that kind of pass, and the answer is that not many.

Many believed that what Doncic did, can only be replicated by Nikola Jokic, but most fans have coincided that the pass reminds the Lakers legend Magic Johnson.

One of the key elements that separated Magic Johnson from the rest of the NBA players not only in his era but even by modern standards, was the capacity the Lakers legend had to give passes from everywhere, including a back dime.

Austin Reaves did something similar in the past playoffs

In the Play-In game against the Minnesota Timberwolves, there was a play by Austin Reaves who gave a back pass to Rui Hachimura who scored from three. The Lakers were reminded of that play thanks to the dime by Luka.
