More than anything, I want Luka to be the next Bird, MJ, Lebron but he's got to do it without fighting the league for calls. He's got to do it by earning their respect and developing a relationship with them.
If he wants MAX then we move on to Vucevic. But I think if he wins a ring this year or goes deep into the playoffs, it will make him hungrier then ever. If we can bring him on and create a team around Luka that we know will be playoff team and give them a chance to win, it may be enough to keep him in check.
