​Luka Doncic may be the next Kobe Bryant protege!

Doncic, who was drafted third overall by the Dallas Mavericks, is spending time with the five-time NBA champion, which in turn can only benefit his game.

He may be trying to develop a "Mamba mentality" ​​of his own. At the end of the day, Bryant is full of wisdom and most assuredly has an insurmountable amount of advice to share with young players entering the league. 

Doncic has the talent to be a star in the ​NBA and should pick Bryant's brain all he can. The Mavericks are going to be an interesting team with Doncic, DeAndre Jordan and Dennis Smith Jr. as the core. 

If Doncic dedicates himself to the game like Bryant did, he could be something special. Of course, Bryant invested himself in the game of basketball to the point it was considered obsessive. The 18-time All-Star had many ​special moments throughout his career, no doubt.

All we can do is wait and see if Doncic offers us fans some Mamba-like moments.
