The Dallas Mavericks will have a close eye on European basketball over the next three weeks as Luka Doncic leads the Slovenian National Team. Slovenia starts with two World Cup qualifiers before heading to EuroBasket in September. Luka has placed them among the favorites, but that is not why their games cannot be missed.
Anybody who has been watching the friendly contests leading into these games that count knows there is plenty of drama. Basketball talent across the globe is up, and nearly every game goes down to the wire. Fans are starved for action, and the next three weeks will be a special treat.
Doncic lifted the Slovenian National Team into the Olympic semifinals before they fell to France and Australia to finish fourth in Tokyo last summer. The 23-year-old superstar is motivated to get them to the World Cup and to win EuroBasket this year. For the nation of just over 2 million people, those are massive accomplishments, but why should Mavericks fans watch?
