Luka Doncic’s reluctance to embrace the Superstardom is reminiscent of a Mavericks legend

New Orleans Pelicans versus Dallas Mavericks

As Luka Doncic slumps into the leather rolling chair in front of his locker, he begins to answer questions from the crowd of journalists around him. Timidly answers the question with short answers and distracts praise. Talking to Doncic, you wouldn’t know she’s one of the rising superstars of the NBA. However, while still relatively new to the league, his swagger on the pitch and his modesty off the pitch are oddly reminiscent. They returned to the last European star to play for the Dallas Mavericks.

Contrary to the time he spends in front of the media, Doncic conveys emotions on the field. On the floor, he is rowdy, playful and even silly – his reactions sometimes go viral. It gets lost in the game. One moment he is smiling from ear to ear, feeding on the roar of the crowd after hitting a big blow, the next is chastising a referee for missing a call. In addition, he is not afraid to let his opponents know how well he is playing.

During a recent home game against the Chicago Bulls, Doncic exploded 21 points in the third quarter; break the game for the Mavericks and make it easy. The outburst raised his total for the night to 34. At the end of the quarter, he turned to Shaquille Harrison of the Bulls, who had defended him, to let him know how many points he had.

“It’s just a game, you know?” Said Doncic later, minimizing the interaction. “We were talking. It’s just a game, you know. It happens. Nothing special, go ahead.”

Garbage is part of what fans, teammates and especially opponents expect from Doncic. He is a vocal player who supports him with consistent play. At 20, the Mavericks star is already smashing the books of records. He has more triple doubles of 30 points, nine, than the rest of the combined league, eight, this season and has seven of the nine highest triple doubles. “Luka Magic” is a TV not to be missed.

“With any player, once you have an idea of ​​the game, a lot of things become easy, but the rare thing about Luka is that he does it at the age of 20,” says teammate Tim Hardaway Jr. “I’ve never seen 20 years be so effective on both sides of the floor. “

Before declaring for the NBA Draft 2018, Doncic was already an acclaimed player in Europe, having won numerous championships, three separate MVP awards and numerous other awards. Once he arrived in the United States, he quickly established himself as one of the best young players in the league, winning the Rookie of the Year in his first season. Now in its second season, it is only getting better.

Off the pitch, Doncic keeps his private life private. However, he is not shy about helping those in need, even if he is reluctant to advertise it. Last season, he befriended a fan of Slovenian heritage diagnosed and treated for non-Hodgkin lymphoma in Cleveland. He met with him and his family while he was traveling and gave them tickets to watch the Mav play the Knights. Recently, along with other major athletes and musicians from his homeland, he has helped raise over $ 5 million for a 22-month-old Slovenian child’s treatment for a rare genetic disorder called 1 spinal muscular atrophy.

Overall, the similarities to Dirk Nowitzki’s are hard to miss. Off the pitch, they both use their celebrity forever, quietly affecting the lives of others, while on the pitch, they let their show speak loudly for themselves. In the locker room, they minimize their personal performances, preferring to put the team first. This is especially true of Doncic, who ignores the accolades that have continually accumulated to the point of being intentionally unaware of the statistics and records he continues to break.

“I mean, I don’t mind & lsqb; I’m asked about the statistics & rsqb; but you know I’m alone, I mean, statistics, you know?” Doncic says. “I think every game is another statistic. For me, I will always say that it is more important to get a win. “

Doncic’s person on the pitch is what fans can see: the superstar in the making. In the locker room, he introduces a person very far from the in-the-face braggadocio and the security he exudes on the floor while he shyly answers questions from the media. His reluctance to embrace his fame sets him apart from other stars and is something familiar to Mavericks fans. That’s exactly what Nowitzki did too.
