Luka Doncic has had a stellar third season in the NBA. He averaged 27.7 PPG, 8.0 RPG, and 8.6 APG during the regular season, and elevated his game further in the playoffs, taking the Los Angeles Clippers to 7 games as the main offensive force on his team. He also had a solid Olympics campaign, though he fell short of bringing the Slovenian National Team a medal. It certainly feels as though he's been playing basketball for a long time, and a vacation was certainly in order.

When NBA players go on vacation, it seems that oftentimes we see them hanging out with other celebrities, and Luka Doncic was no different. In a recent video, Luka Doncic was pictured hanging out with famous Turkish chef Nusret Gokce in Mykonos, Greece.

Nusret Gokce owns a restaurant chain, and he became famous through a series of viral videos featuring him cooking/cutting meat. His widely-known nickname is "Salt Bae" which was given to him by people online due to his special way of sprinkling salt. In the video, Luka Doncic certainly seemed to be having fun, and held up a huge piece of meat while saying "wow".

Due to his status as a famous chef, "Salt Bae" has met his fair share of famous people, and Luka Doncic is definitely not the first celebrity to frequent his restaurants. It's certainly a great way to spend his time off from playing basketball.

There is no question that Luka Doncic will need all the vacation time he can get ahead of the next season, where he will likely have to carry the load for the Dallas Mavericks once again. The Mavericks will likely be a playoff team again next season, and it is possible that they will make it further than they did this season.
