Mark Cuban enjoys seeing another Luka Doncic play


Thursday evening, the room in Cologne looked like an American Airlines Center. Not only because Dirk Nowitzki’s jersey went up to the ceiling, but also because you could see Mark Cuban, Jason Kidd, and of course Luka Doncic.

At the edge of the field to attend this meeting between Slovenia and Lithuania, the owner of the Mavericks was not necessarily fully behind the Slovenians, and he explains why.

 » What you don’t know is that 25% I am Lithuanian. My grandmother is from Darbenai he reveals to BasketNews.  » I’ll be behind Luka, but there’s a part of me, if it wasn’t Luka, that cheers for Lithuania“.

In Cologne, Cuban is therefore in the front row to observe Doncic, whose off-seasons are loaded. There is always a risk in letting your players participate in FIBA ​​competitions. But Cuban takes pleasure first.

« Jlove watching Luka play, because he loves playing so much. It’s always happiness because we see his joy in playing. Coming here is great because there’s the Luka playing with the Mavs, and it’s a whole different thing when he’s representing his country. I’m happy to see all the people from Lithuania, Slovenia and all the excitement it brings. »

And on a technical level, he also finds that it is another Doncic.  » There is more space in the NBA. Here, there is more contact and it is more physical. He needs to be more physical. »
