In any basketball getting a shot swatted is a common scene but a rookie blocking a veteran superstar, well that is something else.
The Lakers had the ball possession in that time where Brandon Ingram found the cutting James going to the paint.
Momentarily, LeBron though he was open under the rim and attempted to make an easy lay-in.
However, Doncic is aware what he wanted to do and he timing it perfectly for a clean block. James still able to recover and attempted again but Doncic still there ready for another swat.
Doncic is currently the top rookie from this year’s draft. He is also the number 1 candidate for Rookie of the Year.
Yet, LeBron James and the entire LA Lakers still got the last laugh as they beat the visiting Dallas Mavericks, 114-103.
James scored 28 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists while Luka Doncic only got 6 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists.
