Domantas Sabonis, son of the myth Arvydas, is an NBA superstar. Since his stage in the Indiana Pacers, his transfer to the Sacramento Kings and the performance maintained over time have confirmed his status as one of the internal leaders of the competition. The results say it, with the team with 42-27 in the standings, 2nd in the West and on a streak of four victories in five games, and the numbers, with the Lithuanian as the reference player in the league with the most games at 20 points and 20 rebounds.
In the victory over the Brooklyn Nets (96-101), Sabonis had 24 points, 21 rebounds and 5 assists. It is his clash number four of the course in which he signs it and beats the three of Giannis Antetokounmpo, stellar reference of the best team in the NBA, the Bucks. The other pursuers keep two maximum.

The season of ‘Domas’ is almost perfect. He has 56 double-doubles, equaling the franchise record for a season (Tiny Archibald, 1972-73 season) and 11 triple-doubles, a record better than that of Luka Doncic (10) and only surpassed by Nikola’s 27 aliens Jokic. He is the engine of the Kings, who in addition to having the best player in the final minutes, with De’Aaron Fox find consistency in the two rings in the Lithuanian. The attack and defense, with, for example, four blocks against the Nets.
Sabonis is the benchmark for Sacramento. He leads the team in minutes played, rebounds, assists and blocks. They had gone decades without so many victories (42) and they will break the curse of 16 courses without accessing the Playoffs. You must believe in the Kinga, with a player at the helm consolidated in the NBA elite and who has great ties to Spain.
He is Lithuanian, with an Andalusian accent. It should be remembered that he grew up in the Malaga town of Torremolinos, hardened himself in the Unicaja quarry and made his debut in the ACB in 2013. The path of ‘the Americas’ and the NBA would knock on his door… with a successful result decade later. Sabonis is once again a world star surname.
