Luka Doncic's Father Says His Son Is Happy With The Dallas Mavericks

Luka Doncic Has Candid Reaction To Referees During Pelicans Game: “Oh My God The Refs Are Bad.”

Luka Doncic is going through his fourth season in the NBA, trying to finally get past the first round of the NBA playoffs. He's been stopped by the Los Angeles Clippers in the past two seasons, but that hasn't made any difference for Luka as he's trying to lead the squad to the promised land no matter what. 

The Dallas Mavericks currently ranks 5th in the Western Conference standings, which, at this point, would make them face the Los Angeles Clippers in the NBA playoffs for the third straight season.

Meanwhile, Luka keeps playing at a high level and showing his happiness on the court every night. Luka's father is even happier than his son seeing his joy playing for the Mavericks. 

Talking with The Dallas Morning News, Sasa Doncic explained how Luka feels about playing in Dallas, sharing his excitement with his son living his best life. 

Sasa Doncic, a bear of a man at 6-foot-7, grinned as he got a hug and handshake from Terrell-native Jamie Foxx, but that wasn’t the only reason Papa Doncic was smiling. He told The News that he’s happy his son is a Maverick.

“More than happy,” Sasa amended.


“Because I saw his smile and I thought, ‘He’s satisfied,’” Sasa said. “And me as a father, I’m the happiest man in the world when you see your child is happy.”

Luka is one of the future faces of the NBA, as he keeps getting better every day. The Slovenian guard is trying to build something good in Dallas to try to compete for the championship, but that will take time. 

He's started the two past seasons as the MVP favorite, but Luka is yet to win the award. It seems like he's more focused on winning with Dallas instead of individual prizes. He's doing great in Dallas, is still young, and has a lot of room to improve. More importantly, he's happy and most of the time, that's a big ingredient for a championship recipe. Luka is averaging 25.5 points per game this season, 8.1 rebounds and 8.1 assists per outing.
