For all the talk about the Mavs and how Luka plays...

Slovenia pushes Luka the same way. Basically... creates everything.

Both rosters seriously lack talent, Dallas at least have shooters.
What a stupid stupid foul by Tobey, picks up his 4th for nothing.

Yo, I think this is ranking up there as one of the best Luka games I've seen.

Although... the Lithuaian defenders are just too **** small and skinny.

Luka is looking like he playing the Cavs. Doing whatever he wants. And making it look like he isn't even trying that hard.

Does Luka's phenomenal cheerleading count as assists for Cancar?

The way he dissected the Lithuanian defense at the beginning of the 3rd to score quick 9 points was a masterclass.

I think this offensive board sealed the game.

Defense + small ball vs team with two dominant centers.

Luka with a casual 31/11/13 on 57%FG to help secure the Olympic spot for Slovenia!
Shut it down! Let's go home!!!

I am not joking.

He played as if he was playing the Cavs or tank Warriors.

Lithuania was so so outmatched. It was almost comical at times.

This Tobey guy is legit or am I missing something? Could he work in the NBA? He reminds me of Maxi a lot.

Better P'n'R player, worse perimeter defender. Definitely could be a rotational piece in the NBA imo...

Doubt he has Maxi's mobility and adaptability on defense.

But offensively... he was pretty awesome. Obviously smart. And his flat shots somehow were going in.

His release is very slow also, a problem in the NBA with the quick close outs, In this game he fouled like crazy, the other games were against very weak competitors, but yeah, he's as good as any 3rd center in this league.

Tobey is not even a starter in Valencia Basket, where he plays. In fact, Bojan Dubljević the current center is much better.
A lot of things to learn out of America.
