LeBron James recently stated that Steph Curry is the one player he’d like to team up with the most at some point in the future, but one NBA insider thinks we should keep another superstar guard in mind.
ESPN’s Brian Windhorst joined ‘Get Up’ on Thursday morning and made quite the suggestion when it comes to possible future teammates for James. Windhorst seems to think that James could look to team up with Dallas Mavericks guard Luka Doncic.
The reason why Windhorst believes LeBron wants to link up with Doncic? He’s drafted him all three years in the NBA All-Star Draft.
“He’s drafted Luka Doncic all three years he’s been an All-Star,” Windhorst said. “He tried to recruit Luka Doncic to his brand within Nike a few years ago, Luka picked the Jordan brand instead. He, I think, would also love to play with Luka.”
“If you want to enter the fantasy realm, (LeBron playing with Luka) is more worthy of having a discussion.”

It goes without saying that if Luka and LeBron were to team up, on any team around the league, they’d be one of the most exciting duos in the NBA. This is pure speculation from Windhorst but isn’t too far-fetched to imagine both James and Doncic may want to team up at some point in the near future.
NBA fans shared their reaction to Windhorst’s speculation:
LeBron in Feb. when I asked why he made a point to draft Luka Doncic to 3 straight All-Star teams: “Because I love everything about him.”
