But yeah i think him and KP are really really looking forward to the next season
The athleticism thing is overblown anyway. There are no shortage of great players that are not great physical specimens. Harden is the player Luka most often gets compared to, and that's appropriate. Harden is not particularly fast or agile for an NBA player. Kevin Durant, Steph Curry and Kyrie Irving don't possess top-flight athleticism either. Nor did Steve Nash, Paul Pierce, Carmelo Anthony, or... Larry Bird, for that matter. Sure, the league is far more athletic now than it was in the 80s, but even back then Bird possessed probably below average athleticism.

Luka's fine. All he needs to do is keep up his conditioning, and he'll be at least a top 10 player for years to come.
