Welcome To Cleveland: Luka Doncic’s Incredible Support From Fellow Slovenes


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, Luka and the Dallas Mavericks had their annual visit in Cleveland to play the Cavaliers. Cleveland apparently is a city with a large number of Slovenian nationals. So Doncic received a lot of cheers from his countrymen, who came to the arena super early to get a chance to talk to their country’s best basketball player.

Doncic took the time to interact with some of them.



Then, during the game, Doncic impressed his Cleveland fans with another incredible performance. He finished with 35 points, 11 rebounds, 6 assists and some ridiculous step-back three pointers.
