Dino Radoncic, who is on loan from Real Madrid to San Pablo Burgos, defended former teammate Luka Doncic on Thursday after Denver Nuggets first-round pick Michael Porter Jr. apparently liked an Instagram comment calling the Slovenian guard “overrated.”
Doncic, it seems, appreciated that support:

@World_Wide_Wob Michael Porter Jr. liked an Insta comment saying Doncic is overrated and then Doncic liked this tweet 👀👀👀 https://t.co/uZVU7ZtlKZ
As Radoncic noted, Doncic isn’t exactly short on accolades.
The Dallas Mavericks lottery pick took home EuroLeague MVP honors last season, and he helped lead Real Madrid to a EuroLeague title while earning Final Four MVP honors and a spot on the All-EuroLeague first team.
During his final season abroad, Doncic averaged 14.5 points, 5.2 rebounds, 4.6 assists and 1.1 steals per game across 61 combined Liga ACB and EuroLeague appearances.
Porter, meanwhile, plummeted to 14th overall in June’s draft because of back issues that limited him to three games as a freshman at Missouri.
