With Thursday's NBA Draft on the horizon, Slovenian Luka Doncic is expected to go in the top five. Though many consider Doncic, who recently turned 19, the best player in the draft, it seems inevitable he will fall to at least the No. 3 pick. The Phoenix Suns seem set on DeAndre Ayton and the Sacramento Kings seem set on Marvin Bagley III. Thus, Doncic should fall right into the lap of the Atlanta Hawks—if the Hawks are smart enough to take him.
Doncic has some hilarious goals for his future, per a recent interview he gave to Howard Beck of Bleacher Report. Doncic told Beck he envisions himself dunking on his friend and Knicks big man Kristaps Porzingis. "But it would be so hard to posterize him—too big!" Doncic said. "I can jump that high, but he can jump, too. So that's the problem." Doncic is a tremendous athlete, and he's 6'8"—but, yeah, good luck posterizing the Unicorn.
He has one other dream, which may be a bit more realistic, and it's related to the tiger tattoo on his left forearm. "I just like tigers," Doncic said. "I said if I go to U.S., I will buy a tiger—like Mike Tyson."
He'd also love to go on a date with Jennifer Aniston, who recently went through a divorce. "I hear she's single now," Doncic told Beck. "I mean, she's nice. I just like her."
Shooters gotta shoot. The draft will commence at 7 p.m. EST on Thursday. You can watch it on ESPN.
