It's the offseason, at least for the NBA. Some players are still playing basketball, as FIBA play is still going on. While, yes, we are all excited to get basketball back in the NBA come October, it's still fun to have some sort of ball being played.
Team USA isn't looking the best we have seen; they are struggling a bit. The roster certainly isn't one of the better ones we have seen. Team Slovenia is also dealing with some injuries, but Luka Doncic looks phenomenal.
Luka Doncic pulls must-see hilarious prank on Slovenia head coach
Recently he was found trying to play a prank on his head coach. A video surfaced on Twitter of Doncic sitting on the side of the court during a practice session while his coach talked to the media on the opposite side of the court. Doncic had a remote in his hand and was secretly flying a drone above his coach's head.
Doncic was smirking and laughing the whole time, so it was easy for coach Aleksander Sekulic to point out the culprit. Group play hasn't started yet, as most games are exhibition games; however, this video will tell you the chemistry that team Slovenia has together.
During this type of play, chemistry is everything. You have to be able to trust your players and teammates, who, in this case, you only see for a few months of the year.
You love to see your best player having fun. As we all know, Doncic can be a jokester, as he is during the NBA season. However, he wasn't joking around much when he put the Phoenix Suns to rest two years ago in the postseason.
That is neither here nor there, though.
As a Mavericks fan, you hope Doncic has fun, but at the same time, you hope he doesn't get injured playing for team Slovenia. If that were to happen, you might as well chalk up the 2023 season for Dallas.
Team Slovenia plays Team USA on August 12, and that'll be a must-watch game as Doncic and Jaln Brunson go head-to-head.
We'll have you covered with all the news surrounding Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks, so stay tuned.
