Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic hangs out with fellow European players in Orlando
The Dallas Mavericks are in the thick of their first-round playoff series against the LA Clippers. They dropped game five and face elimination the next time the Mavs take the court. Luka Doncic will need to be spectacular to keep their season alive.
The 21-year-old superstar has made the most of his bubble experience. He led Dallas back to the playoffs and forced one of the title favorites to sweat in their first-round series. Doncic produced an unforgettable playoff moment in game four. He has also been spotted having fun all over the campus.
That happened again on Aug. 27. Here is a look at the latest.
Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic spotted having dinner with fellow European players inside the bubble
Miami Heat guard Goran Dragic posted a picture of the meal on Aug. 27.
Dallas Mavericks’ teammate Boban Marjanovic joined Luka at the dinner.
It could create plenty of speculation about these players teaming up in the future. Nikola Jokic just signed a five-year extension with the Denver Nuggets. Orlando Magic center Nikola Vucevic is in the first season of a four-year deal. Dragic will be an unrestricted free agent after NBA Disney, though.
The 34-year-old guard is teammates with Doncic on the Slovenian National Team. They won EuroBasket in 2017. The two have certainly talked about teaming up in the NBA.
Kyle Goon also reported this from the Walt Disney World bubble.
Jusuf Nurkic and Ivica Zubac are under long-term contracts too. It is awesome to see all these fellow European players hanging out in the bubble. Luka could be doing some recruiting for the Mavericks.
Fans will not want to miss game six. Luka Doncic will have something special in store as he tries to keep the Dallas Mavericks season alive. Stay tuned to find out what he can pull off from the Walt Disney World bubble.
