If the EuroBasket calendar was particularly charged during the group stage, the players now have a lot of free time. The opportunity for two NBA superstars to get very close and to make fans fantasize. What if a new superteam was being created right now?
In this new school year, while training camps have not yet started in the NBA, all eyes are on EuroBasket and its stars. Historic performances follow one after the other on the ground, in particular thanks to a Luka Doncic heroic with Slovenia. Giannis Antetokounmpo is not left out for Greece, he who receives many testimonies of love, especially during his viral streak with Italy coach Gianmarco Pozzecco.
But like in the NBA, the players have a lot of free time between games and training, so they have to find ways to entertain themselves… Luka Doncic and Nikola Jokic have found an effective method: they spend a lot of time together at the hotel, with other Eastern European players. A viral snapshot of the two All-Stars has just ignited social networks.
Luka Doncic and Nikola Jokic inseparable at the Euro!

Netizens’ first and funniest reaction was to compare the child on the Joker’s lap to Devin Booker, who was humiliated by Luka Doncic in the last playoffs. The second was obviously to wonder if this photo was proof of a big rapprochement between the two candidates for the title of MVP… Mavericks fans hastened to draw conclusions.

Jokic to the Mavericks please!
Alone, Luka Doncic and Nikola Jokic may never have the teams to win the title, Dallas and Denver not being franchises that attract free agents… But if they join forces, they could well become totally unplayable !
