Anonymous Scout Trashes “Immature” and “Entitled” Luka Doncic

Scouting reports from anonymous sources should always be taken with a grain of salt, but goddammit are they enjoyable reads. I got a kick out of the random NFL execs trashing Josh Rosen for being the next Jay Cutler during and after the NFL Draft process, and now an NBA version has cropped up with Slovenian superstar Luka Doncic.

Doncic, of course, is fresh off winning the Euroleague title with Real Madrid last weekend. He also took home like every award the league has to offer in what was probably his last season overseas:

Luka Doncic in the last eight months:

Eurobasket champion
All-Eurobasket team
Euroleague Rising Star award
Euroleague MVP
Euroleague champion
Euroleague Final Four MVP

No. 1 pick next?

All the scouting reports out there on “Wonderboy” are identical at this point (good playmaker and shooter, has ability to guard multiple positions, mediocre athlete), except for one revealed by Arizona Sports’ John Gambadoro. In total there are 15 bullet points on Doncic from this anonymous expert, mostly in praise of the 19 year old, but there are also a few scathing remarks regarding his character:

— Very immature
— Not mentally or emotionally prepared to play in NBA right now​
— Full of himself
— Not liked by teammates

Sounds like the Suns, Kings, and Hawks need to find out if Doncic’s teammates attended his last birthday party to make sure they don’t draft a douchebag. For what it’s worth, the same scout deems Doncic worthy of consideration for the top pick.

Doncic’s teammates and coaches reportedly call this report “stupid:”

Yea, so I talked to Luka Doncic coaches and teammates about the "scout report" that surfaced: "False. Stupid".
