Never doubted he would stay in shape. Hes going to his first postseason, I refused to think he would just sit around and do nothing while waiting around. Can’t wait to see him back at 100% again

I see this break as helping Luka. He had a bunch of nagging injuries that have had time to heal.

Luka has been working with CSKA Moscow's fitness coach Jure Drakslar during quarantine.

Luka is looking fantastic.
After a few games under his belt I'm sure he's going to be ready for a strong postseason push. We should only see positive growth from Luka going forward.

That is definitely the case, even after return to Slovenia ankle was giving him problems, but now the pain/discomfort is said to be gone.

As for his training above. This is half-truth, there are some other parts of the puzzle missing that I wont go into about, cause it is not my place, but there were definitely things which were not professional or ok during his leave from USA and have prevented him to really be in best possible condition as he returns

Yes, I have been saying it before. I love Luka and I think he is an absolutely amazing talent. I think he has an opportunity to be one of those special transcending basketball players, but for that, he will need to have the Jordan like Steph Curry like, etc... mentality towards training and preparation.

Currently, it is not there and not that it is really bad or anything just he is still a guy who wants to have fun while doing the hard work and approach it in an easy-going manner and that is fair and hard to hold against him.

Sorry if I'm lost but this sounds like he's doing things he shouldn't be doing not just being easy going.

I heard he hit 75 threes in a row after practice. It's a reliable source. I think thats impressive, even for practice.

There seems to be a lot of articles suggesting that Luka is overweight. From the pictures I have seen I don't believe it to be true.

I remember watching Luka playing in 2017 Eurobasket and friendly games before the tournament. He looked slim and much quicker than he is right now. Hope he can be that quick again.
