  • VIDEO: Luka Doncic Explains Why His Favorite Player in NBA Is LeBron James

Dallas moved up two spots in a trade with Atlanta to select Doncic as the Draft's No. 3 pick, while the Mavs shipped Trae Young to the Hawks at No. 5 and a future first-round pick. "He's got his own challenges".

"I am excited to play with a legend like Dirk Nowitzki, the best ever European in the NBA", said the young star in his first official interview and when he was asked about his number, he explained that he chose "77" because he couldn't get his favorite "7". "Most NBA execs will get over to Europe once or twice, and what if you happen to fall on one or two bad games?"

The Hawks, meanwhile, get an exceptional shooter in Young, a 19-year-old guard who earned Big 12 Freshman of the Year honors for the Oklahoma Sooners this season.

Besides Nelson, coach Rick Carlisle also weighed in, adding that the comparison game is categorically unnecessary when it comes to describing Doncic and the skill set he's able to bring to the court.

Two days before Thursday's draft, Docic's European League team, Real Madrid, defeated Kirolbet Baskonia for the Spanish Liga ACB title.

"I can too, but to be like LeBron, I have to work much harder", Doncic said.

"He's a great leader, a great person", Doncic said of the 2007 MVP and 2011 NBA Finals MVP. I have a feeling some players will be a lot less kind than Iguodala when talking about his mother. "It's a whole different level from where he's played to where he's about to play". The Mavericks are hoping to pair him alongside second-year point guard Denni Smith Jr.to form a dynamic duo that can be the cornerstones to leading the franchise to a tremendous amount of long-term success.

"When I came up I was playing with older guys and saw that maybe I could be somebody", Doncic said. They were nice to me.

He joined Mychal Thompson - father of Golden State All-Star Klay Thompson - in 1978 as the only players from the Bahamas to be the No. 1 pick in the National Basketball Association draft. I see you need some pieces.

European Union imposes tariffs on United States peanuts, motorcycles and whiskey
European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker said duties imposed by the U.S. on the EU go against "all logic and history". The White House has invoked the same rationale in assessing tariffs earlier this month on steel and aluminum imports .
