Dallas Mavericks superstar Luka Doncic has had issues with his conditioning in the past, and some pundits love to bring it up at every turn. Is it an issue? Luka just averaged 32.4 points, 8.6 rebounds, 8.0 assists, and 1.4 steals in 36.2 minutes per game while shooting 49.6 percent from the field.

The 24-year-old is on pace to be an all-time great. With success brings scrutiny, and the Mavericks had a season to forget. They lost 18 of their final 25 regular season games to slide from fourth in the Western Conference to 11th. Dallas ultimately missed the playoffs as Doncic’s frustrations grew down the stretch. The franchise fears the worst if they cannot improve the roster around their star this summer.

Fans can bet that Luka Doncic is going to return to Dallas hungry after missing the postseason, but he will not be back until after playing for Slovenia in the FIBA World Cup in September. There is a full five months for number 77 to rest and recover, which is why Monday’s sighting of Luka causing a stir was wild.

The ABA League sent out a Tweet of Luka Doncic taking in a game at the Stozice Arena in Ljubljana on Monday night, and there was a ton of chatter about the superstar’s appearance.

Doncic has been off for two and a half weeks, and fans are already buzzing about him being too heavy and out of shape. It is just wild. First, the shot is behind glass, and Luka shaved his beard. Has he been enjoying a bit of downtime after a rough season? You bet he has, but fans should have zero worries. His off-court habits are not always the best, but Doncic will be ready when his number is called.

Number 77 will be locked in for the Slovenian National Team this summer, and he will report to Dallas in shape and ready to dominate. Luka Doncic is not going to let the Dallas Mavericks miss the playoffs again. Doubt him or make fun of him if you wish. The 24-year-old superstar is ready to silence the critics and take his game to another level.

Doncic will begin gearing up for national team play in weeks ahead, and fans know he always shines for Slovenia. Can they win the FIBA World Cup in September?
