Since entering the NBA in 2019, Dallas Mavericks superstar Luka Doncic has been exceptional on the offensive end of the basketball court.
On the other hand, the Dallas Mavericks star’s defensive prowess, or lack thereof, has always left a lot to be desired.
Apparently, Paul George has figured out Doncic’s defensive responsibilities. The eight-time All-Star didn’t hold back when he recently intervened in Doncic’s game.
On the latest edition of the «P with Paul George Podcast,» the Los Angeles Clippers forward admitted that he enjoys watching Doncic play, but not when he’s defending.

«Some people just can’t play defense, and that’s okay,» George said of Doncic. «As great as he is offensively, some people just don’t have defensive talent and vice versa… Dennis Rodman, great on defense. That’s not his defense.»
The Mavs closed out the NBA regular season in disappointing fashion. After making a trade for point guard Kyrie Irving, Dallas went 10-18 down the stretch.
Last week, Doncic called attention to the team’s general lack of defensive execution.
«I don’t think offense is the problem,» Doncic said after a team practice on April 4. «I’ve always said this. It’s our defensive end. I think anybody can score us. Whoever it is, anybody can score.» About us».
