Luka Doncic has a chance to mingle and learn from all-time greats

All-Star weekend is always a star-studded event with plenty of happenings. The pandemic has forced the NBA to nix some of them, but there will be no shortage of events. Doncic will meet with the media, be in attendance for All-Star Saturday night, and play in Sunday’s game. The 75th anniversary will bring together many of the all-time greats to celebrate making the list.

Luka Doncic will be traveling to Cleveland with one of them. The 22-year-old has already added Dirk’s patented one-legged fadeaway to his arsenal, and he is going to have the chance to mingle with other legends. Can the 22-year-old learn a new trick or add something to his game? Will a small piece of advice stick with Luka to help him take his game to the next level?

There are no guarantees. Doncic is a transcendent talent that has been a basketball star since before his teenage years, but he should take the opportunity to talk with and learn from as many of the all-time greats as he can. Luka is on pace to be the league’s best player in a few years if he continues expanding his game. No better way than learning from the best.
