For those with concerns about Luka's athleticism

Today I found myself in a discussion with someone who was arguing that Luka Doncic will be a bust, because he lacks athleticism. This person was convinced that athleticism was absolutely essential to success in the NBA, going so far as to say "Not being super quick and/or athletic is a big flaw in the NBA. It is what turns potentially great players into mediocre ones." This struck me as odd, since it seems trivially false. Hell the last year's MVP runner up and this year's likely MVP James Harden was viewed as having questionable athleticism when he was drafted: Gordon Hayward, last year's premier FA, regarded as one of the best SFs in the game right now faced similar concerns: Last year's DPOY
