For most of us here, the bolded part might not be accurate. But speaking solely for myself, even granting his incredible basketball skills, I can't stand Luka and I'm not sure he's capable of making me dislike him any more than I already do.I agree that it is good for the league. I don’t want to see guys fist fighting and getting suspended for dirty fouls (like Robert horry trying to hurt Steve nash and then gets rewarded with another championship) but short of that what we see with Luka and Booker is just trash talk. There is nothing wrong with that. It makes us all care more. Today mavs fans dislike Booker a little more and suns fans dislike Luka a little more.
I don't blame him for making us look stupid for drafting Ayton, that's on us. But his next level push-offs, the frequent flopping, his constant whining/acting plus his referee manipulation is the worst thing for this league that I've seen in my hundred years as a basketball fan. Or maybe it's just the worst thing since Lebron started doing much the same. But seriously I'd rather they dump the shot clock and legalized the 4 corner offense than have to watch Luka and Lebron continue to abuse the game the way they do.
