Luka Doncic is an international superstar and is known across the world. Everyone knows who Luka Doncic is, and he is preparing for the FIBA World Cup that starts next month.
Doncic will be representing his home country of Slovenia in the FIBA World Cup, and Dallas Mavericks fans get to see their superstar play a month or two early. The world will be watching Doncic and Slovenia as he is on one of the biggest international stages in the world.
This will be the first chance for fans to see if Doncic has taken his game and conditioning to another level this summer, and by the looks of his most recent Instagram post, he has.
Luka Doncic's viral post on Instagram will excite Mavericks fans
Doncic has had problems in the past with coming into the season overweight, but that doesn't look like that will be the case this year. He looks the slimmest that he's been in a while, and "Skinny Luka" has been going viral on all social media platforms. There have been other times in past offseasons that fans have gotten excited over Doncic's appearance, but this year looks much different.
The Mavericks staff reportedly talked to him about reducing his playing weight and it looks like he has.
There have been intense training videos of Doncic on social media, and it seems that he is taking his conditioning as seriously as he ever has. This is exactly what the Mavericks needed out of Doncic, and fans will get to see if the hard work has paid off once the FIBA World Cup begins.
Slovenia is in Group F of the FIBA World Cup with Georgia, Venezuela, and Cape Verde. Doncic and Slovenia should enter the tournament as favorites to win this group.
Doncic will hopefully silence the haters and play some of the best basketball of his career. In order to contend for a title, Dallas needs Doncic to be playing at an MVP level, and he has every tool to be able to do that.
Last season for Dallas, Doncic averaged 32.4 points, 8.6 rebounds, 8.0 assists, and 1.4 steals per game. With Dallas re-signing Kyrie Irving, the Mavericks should be in prime position to return to the playoffs after a disappointing end to their season back in April.
The Mavs also added players like Seth Curry and Grant Williams, and the Mavericks' bench unit will have a new look. Doncic has plenty of supporting cast members to help him push this team into the playoffs, and fans should be excited about what next season has in store.
