Like Magic Johnson in the 80s, Luka Doncic always has a smile. Some take that for arrogance, but the brilliant Mavericks fullback is just happy to be on the pitch. Of course, he also throws big tantrums, and it takes a lot of techniques to bitch about the referees. But what predominates is his pleasure in playing.
” I live my best life. It is a dream he said before the first game against the Warriors. ” Before Game 7, I warned that it might be my last game of the season, but I was ready. [Ce soir], it’s a new basketball game that I’m going to love. I am ready to play at least four more matches. You never know… I’m happy to play basketball. I have an awesome life. I play basketball, and that’s my job. It’s perfect… Everyone wants a job that they are passionate about, and personally, I really love my job. Of course, the smile is even wider when you win. »
“Klay and Steph are amazing, but I think the key to the team is Draymond”
After thwarting the defensive plans of the Suns, the Slovenian is now attacking the Warriors, a team whose attack is first mentioned. But in the ranks of Golden State, there is Draymond Green. He is one of the best defenders in the NBA, but also a specialist in “trashtalking”. True to his reputation, he will use all possible means to foil the Dallas gem.
” I have so much respect for Draymond says Luka Doncic. ” Obviously Klay and Steph are amazing, but I think the key to the team is Draymond. He’s just amazing and I really respect him. He has such an impact on a match in all areas. »
Is Luka Doncic ready to engage in verbal battles with Draymond Green? ” You will never see me trashtalking in the media. Of course, we’re going to have a few words… but that’s the fun part of the sport, and I like that.. »
Does he have an idea of the player who will defend against him? ” I have no idea, but we’re ready for anything. I think I’m going to see more two-takes in this series, and that’s fine with me. All year, we’ve been dealing with two-man situations, and I think we’re better at those situations with four-on-three basketball. »
Master of the tempo against Phoenix, Luka Doncic also expects a faster and freer game. ” Steph and Klay are arguably the two best shooters in history. It will be really complicated. I think the Suns and Warriors are amazing teams, and they play different. I think we’re going to play a little differently compared to Phoenix. I always say that rhythm is important, especially when you’re going to move forward quickly. »
