Birth place: Ljubljana, Slovenia

In a FULL SEND podcast, Cuban looked at Slovenian wunderkind's potential. When asked where he ranks Doncic among the best players in today's NBA, Cuban didn't take long to respond.

"Top 1 or 2. He's a beast. He's so good and he's adding stuff to his game this summer. I mean he's gonna come back even better," the 63-year-old said.

Cuban praised Luka not only for his playing skills but also for how he acts outside the court.

"He's great. I mean he's just a good 23-year-old guy that chills. Got a girlfriend, likes to hang, likes to play video games, and watch basketball," Cuban added.

Last season, Doncic averaged 28.4 points, 9.1 rebounds, and 8.7 assists over 65 regular-season games. The Doncic-led Mavericks went to the Western Conference Finals, where they lost against the Golden State Warriors in 5 games.

Doncic's focus is now on the Slovenian national team. He will join the preparation cycle for EuroBasket 2022 around August 10.

Slovenia will play in Group B on the biggest European stage, where they will meet Germany, Hungary, Lithuania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and France. EuroBasket 2022 starts on September 1.

The Slovenian national team will defend their title which they lifted in 2017 when Goran Dragic and Luka Doncic played a great tournament, both making All-Tournament Team.
