Luka Doncic is one of the best superstars in the game today. Despite his not being extremely athletic by NBA standards, Luka Doncic is still one of the best scorers and playmakers in the game.

Whether he is facing single-coverage or double teams, Luka Doncic can dissect most defenses on any given night. The Dallas Mavericks faced the Portland Trail Blazers recently, and after the game, coach Chauncey Billups stated that Luka Doncic is the toughest player to guard in the NBA. Grant Afseth of FanNation relayed the news.

“He’s the toughest cover,” Billups said of Doncic. “He’s the toughest cover in the league. You can prepare for scorers, prepare for bigs. He’s all of those things in one.”

Billups admitted that when you have a matchup against a talent like Doncic, he's one of those players that makes you stay up late the night before as you try to find solutions to guard him. With the way he controls the shot clock, it's challenging to execute pressuring him without it getting exploited.
