Luka Doncic’s First Fanboy Moment Of His NBA Career


Luka Doncic easily is the most decorated rookie in NBA history. Just this past season alone, he won the EuroLeague title and the Spanish League title with Real Madrid, as well as the EuroBaskets with his native country of Slovenia. He also became the youngest EuroLeague MVP, EuroLeague Final Four MVP in history and the youngest player to ever be named ACB Most Valuable Player (Spanish League MVP).

We guys, over in Europe, already knew he will be special before he was drafted, and it only took a handful of games to convince the rest of the world that he is legit. His attributes include athleticism, basketball intelligence and the ability to play against older players. He has a competitive drive, as well as unique versatility with the ability to dribble with both hands, rebound, shoot with range as well as passing and scoring in a variety of ways.

Last night, the Dallas Mavericks played against the Los Angeles Lakers. It was Doncic’s first game against one of the greatest players to ever play in this league, LeBron James.

After the game, Luka revealed that he talked to James during Wednesday’s game, about getting his jersey after the game. LeBron agreed and obviously gave him the jersey and even signed it:


“I always wanted his jersey, It was something special to me.” LeBron signed it, in part, with the message, “Strive For Greatness.” Of his matchup with James, Dončić said, “It’s special. It’s very special. I was waiting for this game, and it was very special to me.”
