Luka Doncic wants to be a well-rounded NBA player and as a rookie averaging 20.8 points, 7.1 rebounds and 5.5 assists per game, he’s doing that.

It got us wondering where he ranks among some of the NBA’s best Swiss army knives – guys that can do everything well — score, rebound and assists.

As it turns out, there are seven players who rank in the top 40 of all three categories. There would be eight, except that LeBron James has not played enough games to qualify statistically under the NBA’s parameters.

Doncic is one of the seven, along with several others you probably could have guessed. And, by the way, the other six players on the list all are in the All-Star Game this weekend.

Just as interesting are some of the names that don’t qualify, among them Steph Curry, James Harden, Kawhi Leonard and Paul George.

Here’s the list of the players who qualify in all three categories, plus where they rank on each list going into Wednesday’s action:

Player                                Points    Rebounds    Assists

Anthony Davis                  4th             4th            40th

Kevin Durant                    5th              39th          17th

Giannis Antetokounmpo 7th             6th            18th

Blake Griffin                      10th           28th          24th

Russell Westbrook           20th           11th           1st

Luka Doncic                      24th           37th          21st

Nikola Jokic                      28th           13th          6th
