The Dallas Mavericks are working on their roster as Luka Doncic is back in Europe for World Cup qualifying. The 23-year-old helped his country win twice in the last five days to secure a place in the second round.
Sweden gave Slovenia a scare on Sunday, but a 31-point double-double from Doncic propelled the reigning EuroBasket champions to the victory in a wildly entertaining game both on and off the floor.
Mavericks GOAT Dirk Nowitzki was in attendance in Stockholm, and fans saw him heckling Luka from the stands. Doncic provided some laughs of his own on July 3 as he sang and danced to the YMCA from the bench. Here is a closer look at the must-see clip.

The arena played YMCA during the timeout for fans to enjoy, but Luka did not miss the opportunity to have some fun. He was caught singing and dancing on the bench as the song blared throughout the arena. See Doncic providing a laugh below.
It was a tense and tight game throughout on Sunday. Sweden entered as significant underdogs, but that did not stop them from coming one basket away from the upset. Doncic had been there before, and the tight game did not stop him from having some fun during the timeout.
Luka broke out his trademark smile midgame multiple times as he made a ridiculous shot or threw a highlight reel pass. The 23-year-old superstar plays with exceptional joy when suiting up for his country, and it is certainly fun to watch.
Luka Doncic has some time off before gearing back up for NBA training camp and EuroBasket. He will look to lead his country to the championship again, but it will not be easy against the stacked European field.
The competition should have number 77 in top form for the NBA regular season as he looks to take the Dallas Mavericks back to the NBA Finals for the first time since winning the championship in 2011. Stay tuned because the best is still yet to come from Luka and his Mavs.
