Listen: Mavs coach Rick Carlisle thinks Kristaps Porzingis brings another Dirk Nowitzki-Steve Nash type combo with Luka Doncic
"We do have Rick Carlisle's quotes regarding the porzingas blockbuster. He told one of three point three FM ESPN. Here's a quote, we obviously think porzingas is a great young talent similar in many ways to Dirk, this is a kind of a jerk and Nash type of situation only these guys are taller there. There are other good players in this deal. Hardaway juniors terrific shooter and a proven to guard in this league. Courtney Lee has been a guy that's been out of the rotation in New York because they've been going young and all of that kind of stuff, but he's a guy that can still play the game. Well, he's a good defender and shoots the ball. Well, and trae Burks resurrected his career Dennis Smith has had a really terrific year and a half in terms of growth. I mean, he tops it off last night with a triple double. Well, he's a tremendous young player and New York is such an exciting environment for a guy like him. It'll be a great situation for him. So coach Rick Carlisle chimes in and gives that sort of low expectation Durkan Dirk Nash combo so to help us break down. Go ahead, sir. I'm gonna say, unfortunately Smith junior being good is bad for the next gonna make them play better. And they wanna be worse fair fair point because it right now, it's all in Brazil,"
