Dallas Mavericks fans overwhelmingly vote for Victor Wembaniyama’s Luca Donchi.

Last week I received a question that didn’t involve the NBA draft or free agency, so I went with a hypothesis: Would you trade Luca Donchi for Victor Wembanyama? It’s a simple question but a lot goes into it, age, contract, potential ceiling, injury concerns, there’s a lot to consider. But Dallas fans made that question look silly.

Less than 1 in 5 voters prefer Wembaniaman over Luka Doncic. The majority voted to stay with Luke and that makes clear sense to me. As much as Wembenyama has been told, he needs to have a discussion of results. Here are Doncic’s credentials in terms of awards:

  • 4× NBA All-Star (2020–2023)
  • 4× All-NBA First Team (2020–2023)
  • NBA Rookie of the Year (2019)
  • NBA All-Rookie First Team (2019)
  • Euro League Champions (2018)
  • Euroleague MVP (2018)
  • EuroLeague Final Four MVP (2018)
  • All EuroLeague First Team (2018)
  • 2× EuroLeague Rising Star (2017, 2018)
  • EuroLeague 2010–20 All-Decade Team (2020)
  • Euroscar Player of the Year (2019)
  • 3× Liga ACB Champion (2015, 2016, 2018)
  • Liga ACB MVP (2018)
  • All Liga ACB First Team (2018)
  • 2× ACB Young Player of the Year (2017, 2018)
  • 3× ACB All-Youth Team (2016–2018)
  • 2× King of Spain Cup Winner (2016, 2017)
  • 2× Trofeo Costa de Sol Champion (2016, 2017)
  • FIBA Intercontinental Cup Champion (2015)
  • EB Next Generation Tournament Champion (2015)
  • EB Next Generation Tournament MVP (2015)
  • Slovenian Sportsperson of the Year (2018)

And here is Victor Wembanyama:

It’s not very close when you consider the results. Yes, Luka is older and has had more time, but as an up-and-coming player, Doncic is focused on winning and Wembley is focused on growing. Perhaps Wembey will one day surpass Luka or win the championship in the NBA soon, but for now this is certainly clear.
