Dončić is already beginning to solidify himself as a force to be reckoned with. The Slovenian-born guard has no holes in his offensive game. He’s a big-time shot maker who has shown no signs of shying away from the clutch moment. His playmaking and rebounding are elite for his position. Once Dallas is able to put more shooting around him, Dončić should flourish in a James Harden-like role. The poise in which he operates under is befitting for a 20-year-old who will be a star for many years to come.

Kirilenko may have been born in St. Petersburg, but his play most closely resembled a Swiss Army knife. The Russian native was a highly-versatile player during his solid 13-year career. During his younger years, Kirilenko was a defensive menace who could guard virtually anyone. The 6-foot-9 forward averaged over three blocks per night during an impressive three-year stretch.
