In an interview with retired NFL players Terrell Owens and Matthew Hatchette, Jerry West revealed his thoughts on 18-year-old Kobe Bryant’s talent and work ethic. And, the retired 14-time NBA All-Star mentioned Dallas Mavericks point guard Luka Doncic.
On “Getcha Popcorn Ready with T.O. and Hatch” show on fubo Sports Network, West believes Luka’s play compares a lot to Black Mamba. The 83-year-old said, “Oh my God, I can’t believe that someone let him go. I can’t. He was a unique kid. At fifteen years of age, he was competing against men in Europe.” He talks about Doncic at the 2:00 mark in the YouTube clip below.
