Race has nothing to do with it. People have zero problems accepting good white defenders.
Luka hasn't been a very good defender to date in his career. Which considering his youth, his offensive load, and his physical limitations is neither shocking nor unfair to point out.
To his credit he was good enough in the playoffs and he's been solid so far this year. If he is just not a liability to be targeted that's all he needs to be. Add to that his fierce competitiveness, otherworldly IQ, and defensive rebounding, its likely he will figure out how to be a small positive on defense in his prime.
But if he's not. If he's a liability, pointing that out isn't racist.
Being a white Euro 100% plays a role in player perception. But you already know that. Per usual, you're so woke!
By the way, you yourself are underrating Luka's D. This year (I'd call him average last year), he's been statistically good.
105 DRtg, .7 DBPM, .4 DWS.
Warned for this.
