Several Warriors stars as well as head coach Steve Kerr had big praise for Mavs rookie Luka Doncic, as reported by the Dallas Morning News:

The Warriors had beaten Dallas 10 straight times and 17 of the previous 18 meetings. They were impressed with their first live look at Mavericks rookie Luka Doncic, who scored a team-high 24 points and pulled down nine rebounds.

“He’s great; a great player,” said Kerr, who before the game compared 6-7 Doncic to a five-tool baseball player. “He’s got a lot of skill and a lot of guts. I thought he played a great game.” …

“You could tell he’s been playing pro for a long time,” said Warriors guard Klay Thompson, who scored 22 points but missed 15 of 24 shots, including a 16-footer that would have tied the score at 110.

“He’s got great poise. He gets to his spots, and he’s going to be a cornerstone of this franchise for a long time.” …

“I like him a lot,” Durant said. “He’s polished. He’s skilled, and you can tell he’s played professional basketball already. They got a great guy in him to lead this franchise in the future. Luka and Dennis [Smith Jr.] play well together.”

It’s still early in the season but so far, Doncic has been the league’s best rookie.
