Luka Doncic has an uncanny way of leaving viewers in awe whenever he steps foot on the court. Still over a month before he turns 25, the Dallas Mavericks star has already proven he is one of the NBA's best players, even though he has been massively disrespected by the league recently.
An offensive wizard, he is currently the only player in the league who ranks in the top three in average points and assists. Luka's magic has also helped propel the Mavs to playoff contention this season after failing to reach the last postseason.
However, what makes Doncic a must-watch star is not just his hoops brilliance but also because of his hilarious personality that he brings to the floor.
Mavericks star Luka Doncic's 10 funniest moments of his career so far
The Slovenian has a vast collection of highlight reels through his first six seasons in the NBA. His shot-creating and playmaking abilities have put him on a lot of lists of top plays in the past years.
On the other hand, he has also had some bloopers, even making a few appearances on Shaqtin' A Fool, like when he missed an easy dunk. Doncic was a good sport about it, acknowledging his gaffe and poking fun at himself with a handful of laughing emojis on X (formerly Twitter.)
Moreover, his cheeky attitude has sometimes resulted in his hilarious interactions with other players and personalities. It has been evident that the four-time All-Star is relishing the opportunity to take center stage every time he appears on the court.
So, let's take a look at some of Doncic's most comical moments on a basketball floor, starting from the oldest footage to the most recent ones.
10. Dreams don't come true (November 2019)
In his second year in the Association, Luka showed he was a force to be reckoned with after becoming just the second NBA player ever after LeBron James to record a 40-point triple-double before turning 21. The game in question featured a matchup between Dallas and the San Antonio Spurs.
From the get-go, it was clear that Doncic would have a night to remember. In the opening quarter, he scored 17 points and sank four 3-pointers.
After the contest, he said he dreamt about having an impressive first quarter, but Doncic put up one point too many than he had in his dream. Consequently, he blurted out a line that had folks splitting their sides.
The game was special for the organization, as it was the Mavs' first bout against their in-state rival following Dirk Nowitzki's retirement. Luka proved that the team would be in good hands, as he recorded his league-leading six triple-doubles at that point of the 2019-20 campaign.
Dallas punched in the wire-to-wire victory and withstood a furious rally from the Spurs in the fourth quarter. As for Doncic, the basketball genius would repeat the feat in less than a month. He also had a sophomore season that most other players can only dream of, earning an All-NBA First Team selection.
