Playstyle is different

Jokic is much more closer to Larry Bird's playstyle

Luka is more of a less athletic Lebron playstyle-wise, with a better pivot foot to make up for it

LUKA PLAYS LIKE BIRD INSIDE THE 3
AND MORE LIKE HARDEN OFF THE DRIBBLE.

HE PLAYS NOTHING LIKE BRON
OUTSIDE OF DOMINATING THE BALL.

Bird often was a face-up shooter in the manner of Jokic, and his passing is more reminiscent of Jokic too.

Luka's passing is more reminiscent of Harden and LeBron, with dribble-penetrate-kick out passes and cross court passes at the top of the key.

Luka has more pivot foot in his game than Bird does too

JOKIC FACES UP AND SHOOTS
SET SHOTS.

BIRD FACES UP AND
PUTS THE BALL ON THE FLOOR.

J-Kidd was the perfect hire. We drafted him in '94, he wins ROY, gets traded and has a HOF career between PHX and NJ but comes back home to Dallas to win his ring.

Kidd can basically let Luka cook on offense while refining his game in the areas where he's weak (mainly defense)....the stuff Kidd was good at. Cuban came through with the perfect hire. Got Mike Finley working in the front office. Dirk hanging out courtside like he's Luka's uncle.
and mfs on this board swore up and down that Mark wanted an all white org. That was the most trash sports narrative I've ever seen here

If Dallas can avoid slow starts and if Luka can come into each season in game shape from here on end he’ll win multiple MVPs & they’ll make multiple Western Finals/NBA finals runs. The Bron comparison is good for him. I don’t think anyone wants to be compared to Harden anymore.

I don't know why everyone is running up in here so damn convinced Kidd was the "perfect" hire after he's failed miserably as a head coach on every team he's been on. The jury is still out, especially since y'all will be quick to switch shyt up if the Mavs lose this series.

Funny because the mavs play exactly like the 2018 rockets that won 65 games.

Slow pace, attack mismatches in isolation, drive and kick for threes.
