Luka Doncic’s 43/17/13/28-foot game ending Game 4 will go down as the Greatest Playoff Performances Ever By Someone Barely Eligible To Drink An Alcoholic Beverage Legally.
👏 Well deserved 👏

The 21-year-old willed a Porzingis-less Mavs team from 21 down to deliver a cold-blooded *Mike Breen voice* BANG just hours after suffering an ankle sprain that looked no different than the one that just sidelined fellow bitch ass white boy Gordon Hayward for a month.
The irrationally enduring idea that Luka is nothing more than Toni Kukoc 2.0 is now as delusional as still believing the Easter bunny is real or that Michael Jordan voluntarily opted out of basketball demagoguery to play double-A baseball in Alabama.
Players with at least 43 points, 17 boards, 13 assists in postseason history:

Sunday night will forever go down as Luka Doncic’s I Have Arrived moment, or as we say in Slovenian, Prišel Sem.
BANG BANG!! In my *Mike Breen voice

While the NBA world collectively marveled at the Power of Luka, TNT analyst and my friend Shaquille O’Neal choice to channel his Gran Torino Clint Eastwood and poop on the parade.
All I’m gonna say is that it took Shaq 37 playoff games to have 2 40-point games
Luka’s done it twice in 4 games 🤫pic.twitter.com/zQUZhgr3lq

Wow the Inside the NBA crew talks about Luka's play and shot and Shaq downplays it saying he's seen it before…
Then he says he isn't better than Steph, Dame and Harden… anybody care to tell him Luka is 1 year older than his oldest son? pic.twitter.com/AijUpYdxSF

Shaq with the "IF Pat Beverly plays"
LUKA SCORED 42 ON HIS HEAD IN GAME 1.
