Luka Doncic Receives ‘Welcome Back To Madrid’ To Remember


Luka Doncic did not just emerge out of thin air. His journey to basketball superstardom began in the bustling streets of Ljubljana, Slovenia, but it was his time in Madrid, Spain that truly molded him into the player he is today.

In 2012, Luka Doncic’s family made a significant decision that would change the course of his career. They decided to move to Madrid, Spain, where Luka would enroll in the youth system of one of Europe’s most prestigious basketball clubs, Real Madrid. At just 13 years old, Doncic was about to embark on a transformative journey that would shape his future as a basketball prodigy.

Real Madrid’s youth academy, known for its exceptional training and development programs, proved to be the perfect environment for Luka#s growth. The young Slovenian’s versatile skill set and innate basketball instincts stood out immediately. He quickly moved up the ranks, proving himself at each level and catching the eye of the coaching staff and scouts.

Luka Doncic’s rapid rise to prominence was no fluke. By the age of 16, he was competing with Real Madrid’s senior team in the prestigious Liga ACB, Spain’s top professional league, and the EuroLeague, Europe’s most competitive club competition. His impact was felt immediately, and he was soon a regular starter, making him one of the youngest players in the history of these leagues. His time with Real was also marked by significant achievements. In the 2018 EuroLeague season, he played a pivotal role in leading the team to victory, making him the youngest player ever to win the EuroLeague MVP award.

Yesterday, Luka Doncic found himself playing in Madrid’s arena for the fist time in years. This time however, he would be playing against his former team, as the Dallas Mavericks played a pre-season game against Madrid.

But even though Luka was an opponent last night, he’s still in the hearts of Madrid and its fans. This is why Doncic received a welcome back to remember.
