The Dallas Mavericks are a tight-knit organization, and their togetherness helped them reach the Western Conference Finals. Superstar Luka Doncic is unquestionably one of the league’s best players, and he wanted the team to improve their chemistry. It happened this season and does not stop with the roster. The team’s front office traveled to postseason games, including Mavs legends Dirk Nowitzki and Michael Finley.

The front office is facing a crucial offseason. They are looking to improve their roster, but they do not have cap space. Jalen Brunson is an unrestricted free agent, and the Mavs have to re-sign him while exploring the trade market for a center and depth.

Dallas is prioritizing fit with their roster additions because they want to remain close. It is not just limited to the court either. The Mavericks enjoy hanging out and having fun. Sometimes it involves a bet too, and vice president of basketball operations Michael Finley paid one off over the holiday weekend.

Luka Doncic tops Michael Finley in tennis but Mavericks legend wants a rematch

Luka took down Finley in a game of tennis, and apparently, the loser had to post a video on Instagram acknowledging the defeat. Fin even went as far as to say he “got crushed”, but the two-time All-Star wants a rematch.

Owner Mark Cuban laughed at the video and shared congratulations to Doncic on Twitter.

Fans know Luka Doncic loves to compete, and he is always eager to put something on the line. The 23-year-old superstar defeated the vice president of basketball operations in tennis, and hopefully, supporters can get a glimpse of the upcoming rematch.

It will be a busy summer for Doncic as he plans on leading the Slovenian National Team in both World Cup qualifying and EuroBasket. Expect to see a few more fun bets this offseason as Doncic prepares to take his game to the next level. Supporters know there will be trick shots and some comedy too, so do not miss it.
