The Dallas Mavericks are doing everything they can to ensure that Luka Doncic recovers from his calf injury and is back on the court as soon as possible. Will it be in time for Game 1 of their first-round playoff series against the Jazz? No word yet, but it looks unlikely at this moment.

Doncic is a global superstar. He spent his teenage years dominating the EuroLeague with Real Madrid before coming to the NBA. The Slovenian is already a legend, and he just keeps getting better. Luka narrowly missed leading his home country of just over two million people to a medal at the Olympics last summer, and he has the Mavericks in prime position to win their first playoff series since 2011.

Mavs GOAT Dirk Nowitzki has a problem that only Luka can solve these days. Here is a look at his hilarious Tweet, and why the disrespect on Nowitzki has gone a bit too far.

The Tall Baller from the G is no longer the person his friends want to autograph their jerseys. They are all looking for Luka’s signature. Read Dirk’s hilarious Tweet below.

It shows just how popular Luka Doncic is in 2022. Fans wait outside the team hotel for hours to try to get an autograph from the 23-year-old superstar, and he is always gracious with his time. Number 77 is a global superstar that is still getting better.

Dirk Nowitzki deserves better, though. He is one of the best players of all time, and there are plenty of MFFLs that would love to have Dirty’s signature. He just had a book signing at the American Airlines Center before the Mavs final regular-season home game that was a hot ticket. Maybe Dirk’s friends could start asking for both Nowitzki and Luka Doncic to sign the jersey.

Dallas Mavericks fans are watching closely for updates on superstar Luka Doncic’s calf injury. News has been slow to come out, but there is optimism about him playing at some point in the series. Stay tuned to The Smoking Cuban for all the latest on Luka and Dirk Nowitzki.
