Luka Doncic debuts in the games with an exhibition for the memory in the beating to Argentina

He was still fresh at Saitama Arena The Team Team Saturday night, reviving that absurd debate between FIBA Basketball and the NBA. As if they were different things. Soon Luka Doncic showed that such talent gives, that baskets love the elect. And in these games in which he debuts, he opts for maximum star.

It was his first day of Olympic class. It would seem late of so much that he already showed, but Luka is still 22 years old. He, solitary hero, has led Slovenia to the appointment, in a pre-oolympic in which he pulled the spine of the absence in the World Cup. Before Lithuania de Sabonis and Valanciunas, in Kaunas, Dallas's player finished 31 points, 11 rebounds and 13 assists. I never seen. And a victory as historic as that in the European 2017.

Because what surrounds him in Slovenia is not too much, already withdrawn from the Gorran Dragic team. But Luka has the virtue of being able to make believe and grow to the rest. The contagion of the charisma. In addition to producing in an absorbable way. Preplic, Cancar, the other Dragic and the nationalized Mike Tobey -The new Anthony Randolph-, Pivot del Valencia. Together, at the Olympic dawn, they shaken without blush to the world runner.

Nothing less than Argentina de campazzo, Deck and a Scola that enters the select club of the fifth games at 41 years. He shifted in a bad way, already defeated at rest, when Doncic added 31 points. In the third room he came to fall from 30, pure impotence. Luka, magician, dominated as he did not remember and signed a work of art: 48 points, 11 rebounds and five assists.

He supposed the maximum annotation of his career, the second of all the history of the Olympic Games. In 1988, the legendary Oscar Schmidt made Spain 55. Doncic was on his way when Aleksander Sekulic, his technician, sat out more than four minutes. Everything was sentenced and the games have just begun.

It was striking to check how with every rest of the former Real Madrid, Slovenia recurred and Argentina came back little by little. But the ogre returned and frustration again. Neither campaign (21 points), how well he knows him, could do anything. Just makeup at the end, treadmill the Albiceleste also for the little success of it (5 of 31 on triples).

Both are the next rivals of Spain. The good news is that this beating leaves Argentina touched, because in addition, with the change of system - they wear the two best third and then there will be raft of quarters, "he says everything. The bad thing is that there will be a potent and confident rival opposite. That will be next Sunday.
