On Sunday, Luka put himself in elite company. After hitting the game-winning buzzer-beater against the Clippers to take Game 4, Luka became only the second player to drop 40 points and hit a game-winner in the same playoff game. The other 4 players on this list? Michael Jordan, LeBron James, Kawhi Leonard, Damian Lillard.
However, despite Luka’s playoff success getting viral attention and high praise from Hall of Fame players like Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, and Steph Curry, one all-time great remains unimpressed.
Shaq doesn’t see Luka’s playoff performance thus far as anything special. On NBA On TNT, Shaq expressed how he isn’t buying into the baby goat just yet when he said:
“He’s great, but I’ve seen this before.”
