“I felt special,” said Doncic on hearing that James wanted to pursue him for a shoe business. “It is something that you feel special about. Obviously, I didn’t know that before. When I saw it, someone sent me. That’s how I found out. But, as I said, it is something special. It is something I cannot explain. “
Doncic, 21, ended up signing with Jordan Brand.
Of course, Doncic is one of the best young players in the association. The guard averaged 28.8 points, 9.4 rebounds and 8.8 assists per game last season.
The international highlight was choice # 3 in the NBA 2018 Draft. The Mavericks hope Doncic will lead them to the title race in the future.
James, 35, knows all about having attention and expectation on his shoulders. After all, James was the No. 1 choice in the 2003 NBA draft.
On Friday, James and Doncic will duel in a star-studded fight on Christmas Day. The four-time MVP must play, despite concerns about an ankle injury.
