Watch: Mavericks’ Luka Doncic sends heartwarming message to fans ahead of All-Star game

As the NBA all-star game approached, the fans became hyped to see their rival idols teaming up and playing another team of stars. Youngsters like Luka Doncic, Zion Williams, and Jayson Tatum are going to play with or against Lebron James, Stephen Curry, and Kevin Durant like legends.

The NBA All-Star team is selected by the votes of players, journalists, fans, and coaching staff. The vote was naturally cast based on the performance of each player in that particular season. In short, the best five players in their position are chosen from each conference.

Luka Doncic of the Dallas Mavericks has been named to the honor for the fourth time in a row, and he didn’t forget to thank those who deserve it for this achievement.

What did Luka Doncic say in his thank-you statement?

Yesterday, the Mavericks’ 23-year-old superstar posted a thank you video on twitter with the caption, “Thankful to be playing in my 4th #NBAAllStar Game. Big 🙏 to my fans for voting.”

The appreciation post touched the right spot in the fans’ hearts as he implied he couldn’t achieve this honor with their support.

Besides the fans’ support, the guard is having a magnanimous season for the Mavs, scoring the highest average of 33.3 points with 8.8 rebounds and 8.1 assists per game in 50 appearances this season.

The 6.7-foot Slovenian’s fiery performance propelled the franchise to the 6th seed in the Western Conference. With the arrival of another star, Kyrie Irving, it appears the Mavericks are going to give a tough fight in the postseason playoffs.

Doncic will play alongside NBA legend LeBron James, reigning MVP Steph Curry, and two other young players, Zion Williams and Nikola Jokic. Their opponent, the Eastern Pool, will feature Giannis Antetokounmpo, Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, Jayson Tatum, and Donovan Mitchell.

However, recent injuries and trades have jumbled the all-star roster. Kevin Durant, Steph Curry, Joel Embiid, and Giannis Antetokounmpo have already made their participation questionable. Let’s see how the all-star game goes.
