Wikipedia says he was American-born and born in Germany.
WTF?

Probably meant that born as an American in Germany, which turn out makes you a Slovenian.

His worst game yet. Looks like he plays down to competition.

8 pts on 2/10 FG, 8 rbs, 4 ast. Still finished with a game high +/- of 18.

It's ok, when KP had 24 pts yesterday, some people said he wasn't any good. As the only elite player on the team, he gets more defensive attention, and besides, nobody scores in the stratosphere every game.

You could tell from Doncic's body language that he's not trying because the level of competition was low. Can't tell if that's a good or a bad thing. His role is completely different playing for the national team than what's he doing at Real Madrid. Here's he's more of a scorer and playmaker only secondary because nobody else can score.

Who said that he wasn't any good? What I said was that just because he had a decent game (9 for 20 shooting) against inferior competition that's not something to get all giddy over like a young school girl would. Capish?

When I say something, it's not always about you. :lol:

Its true that his stats were good but nothing extraordinary. Watching him play the whole game was more impressive. Doncic had a down to earth game today, too. He's barely an adult, so his future is still unlimited. His game was not that special today, but it happens.

DIdn't he score like 14 points in ~15 minutes and overall had a good game against Russia's student team?

I guess that was his debut in NT, so he perhaps wanted to make a great impression..

The whole team is rusty at the moment. Bertans junior was completely lost. They are exhibition games and should reach the top form at the end of August.

Kuz is a good all around player. Last season looked like an adjustment period for him.
