It's not that clear. It'd be between him and Kukoc IMO. Maybe Petrovic too.

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...

Not a chance in hell.

1. Kukoc
2. Petrovic
3. Schmitt

Luka would be great, but these guys were out of this world talents.

I.e. Luka would not have fared good Draft wise back 30 years ago, when the NBA was far more conservative (i.e. closed) in terms of hiring European guys.

I'm not sure I can take a guy with a tattoo like that seriously.

""Doncic has been impressive in pickup games at the Mavericks' facility leading up to training camp, Tim MacMahon of ESPN reports.

While summer pickup games are far from the real thing, MacMahon noted that Doncic has "often been the best player on the court" in contests that include current Mavericks, a well as local products like the Spurs' LaMarcus Aldridge. MacMahon went to state that Doncic is "not in great shape by NBA standards," which may be a bit of a concern, but shouldn't be overly surprising given that Doncic took several weeks off following the conclusion of the EuroLeague season in late-June. Expectations are justifiably high for Doncic, who's arguably the most accomplished European player to ever come to the NBA, and it remains to be seen how he'll be utilized by a Mavs team simultaneously developing second-year point guard Dennis Smith, Jr.""

I just came down from 15 points to win by one using the Mavericks. This was mostly due to a much of open 3s I hit with Doncic. So 2k19 must think this kid can shoot.
