Kukoč at 20-something was light years away from Doncic. A 6-11 point forward who was a better shooter than Doncic, better defender, equally good passer, could play 4 positions, towered over guys, basically the most talented European player ever, watched him live back then, Giannis with a shot and less athletic.
Pity he played 3rd fiddle with the Bulls, could have been a 6-11 Manu had je been born 20 years later.
Today he would have been the top pick.
Same with Drazen, he would light up the league as it is today, if drafted at 22 at the level he was 30 years ago. He just never got a chance with Adelman in Portland, too many star guards.
Luka is better than Rubio. Turkoglu is different, Marciulionis was Dragic before Dragic. Schmitt was from a different era, white Antoine Walker, but better.
But Kukoc was on another planet, pity he was born in a different era...
