  • He was He had just been hired by the Clippers.

  • He wasn't listen to draft him or anything.

  • But anybody can look at Luca now and say he's great.

  • Yeah, it was a polarizing top of two years ago, I would have loved to know what his notes were.

  • Luca if he even had notes on Luca, because the people that believes in look at that time when there were teams were like Now I don't believe in this guy and the Mavericks being obviously top of the chart they traded up to get him.

  • That, to me is really really impressed that they believed in them to do that well, here.

  • Jerry West is the man who watched Kobe Bryant's draft workout and said, Shut it down.

  • Yeah, like that's Ah, that's a pretty big bar for Luca Toledo.

  • I think here's the big question with Luca, and this is not to say that he won't be great in these situations, but Dirk Nowitzki is a champion Dr playoff proven and tested one of championship, basically Arizona's.

  • They had support players on the team, but he was the only real star at.

  • That's what we know about Luca is entirely based on the regular season right now and what he did in Europe, But we don't know what's gonna happen when they have real expectations when there's real pressure on them when they when they have to deliver in the clutch, I would bet on him.
