Luka Doncic was the subject of criticism in recent hours for showing his support to Dallas Wings rookie Arike Ogunbowale. This is pretty normal, as Doncic recently won the ROY award in the NBA and was rooting for Ogunbowale to do the same in the WNBA.

Nevertheless, that wasn’t welcome by everybody, especially the Minnesota Lynx, or at least the person in charge of their Twitter account, who bashed Doncic after the Wings posted a video of the Slovenian sending a message of support to their star rookie.

In the footage, Doncic appeared wishing Ogunbowale luck in her own Rookie of the Year bid while holding up her jersey in the Mavericks’ weight room.

“What’s up Arike. I know you’re having a great season, so just keep pushing,” Doncic said. “I know you’re going to be the Rookie of the Year, so the best of luck to you.”

It’s not a secret that the 22-year-old is having an outstanding season, averaging 18.1 points and three assists per game in Dallas.

However, just a few hours later, the Lynx appeared to call out Doncic.

“says a guy who hasn’t been to a @WNBA game all season but got sent a jersey and recorded a scripted video,” they wrote.

Dallas sportswriter Brice Paterik was quick to reply to the Lynx’s tweet, calling it a bad look. They, however, didn’t care at all.

“Not trashing. Just facts,” the team replied. “We have plenty of NBA players (and coaches) at our games, bruh…”

This is not the first time we see this happening. Last season Wings star Skylar Diggins-Smith even called out Mavericks owner Mark Cuban for never having attended one of their games. Things aren’t good between teams from Dallas.

Luckily, the Lynx are ready to defend the league and players, even if they aren’t their own.
