Shaquille O’Neal picks Shai Gilgeous Alexander over Luka Doncic

Players like Antetokounmpo, Morant, and Doncic often come into the mix when talking about the future of the NBA. Experts often pick Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic over other players. But NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal believes Shai Gilgeous Alexander is better than Luka Doncic.

Former NBA player Shaquille O’Neal said:

“Luka is a fabulous player, but this kid (Shai Gilgeous Alexander)? I’m taking him right now!”

Here is the complete statement:

“Luka is a fabulous player, but this kid? Listen, he plays the right way and gets his teammates involved. I’m taking him right now.”

Not just Shaq, but even Zach Lowe said:

“Shai Gilgeous Alexander is the best guard in the world.”

Well, they are not wrong. SGA is one of the best players in the current NBA scenario. He can shoot, steal, dribble, and do several skills that not every basketball player can. He is undoubtedly one of the best players in the NBA. Moreover, he has improved his game a lot season by season. Here are his stats for better understanding.
