Luka Doncic reveals unguardable shot playing for Slovenia: Did Mavericks' MVP candidate just perfect Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's skyhook?
We're about to find out what happens when one of the toughest covers in the NBA adds an unguardable shot to their bag.
Ahead of the 2022-23 NBA season, Mavericks owner Mark Cuban revealed in an interview that Luka Doncic is working on an "insane" shot.
He didn't mention what the shot actually is because he didn't want to jinx it — his words
not mine — but Cuban did say we'll know what it is if we see Doncic do something and ask ourselves, "Where the hell did that come from?"
Abdul-Jabbar, of course, made the skyhook Doncic appears to be working on famous. It played a leading role in him becoming the NBA's all-time leading scorer
ESPN once called it the "deadliest shot the NBA has ever seen" — and yet even with it being practically unguardable,
it's not something that's been passed down from generation to generation.
Why? Ask Abdul-Jabbar, and he'll tell you the current generation is too caught up in shooting 3s. Ask Shaquille O'Neal, whose father made him work on the skyhook when he was a kid
