Luka Doncic has made his way back to the NBA headlines. The reason isn’t the Dallas Mavericks adding another superstar to help him or make the roster better. It’s also not the team successfully re-signing Kyrie Irving. Instead, it’s the great shape Luka Doncic is maintaining at the moment.
The Dallas Mavericks are probably going to have a fit and ready-to-go Luka Doncic at the start of the next season. It will be happening after a while now as in the past off-seasons we had Hookah Doncic, with lower body injuries. But now the Slovenian all-star point guard is locked-in with some serious business and is in the perfect shape to dominate the league in the 2023-24 season.
The Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving-led Dallas Mavericks this season were terrible. They even failed to make it to the play-in tournament and ended their journey in the regular season itself as the 11th seed. They had a 38-44 record and didn’t live up to the expectations around them. Luka Doncic wasn’t at his best once the season started. But with time passing by he even recorded historic games while playing MVP-level basketball.
Now with the offseason and summer being months long, Luka Doncic is already in a better condition and looks ready to ball out. He shared a photo of his on his IG story where he looked skinny. That image has impressed fans around the globe and at the same time has also sent a warning to the league.
Fans react to Luka Doncic maintaining a great shape
Luka being back in shape has the Dallas Mavericks fanbase excited and super happy. As with him being light, he’ll be able to reach new wonders and dominate the game even more. Now the fans hope Luka Doncic will keep the grind on and maintain the shape once the season starts and then stays healthy. Some also want him to gain a bit of muscle to be better in the paint. You can find some of the many reactions posted by fans on Twitter here below:
The FIBA World Cup is also on the way and he’ll be balling out for Slovenia there. This can be a reason behind him being in great shape. Anyways, he and the Mavericks will benefit from it once the season starts. Also, if the Mavs are able to retain Kyrie Irving and Luka Doncic is able to grow more chemistry with him.
The league can be in some serious danger as that’s one of the best offensive duos ever. Luka Doncic wasn’t in great shape this season but still managed to average 32.4 points, 8.6 rebounds, 8 assists, 1.4 steals and 0.5 blocks. Now one can only imagine the impact a fit-Luka can have on the game. Also, the rumors about G.O.A.T LeBron James joining the Dallas Mavericks are fresh and active.
