Soon the Dallas Mavericks will play a preseason game vs. Real Madrid in the Spanish capital. An event organized by the NBA to promote its brand in Europe, taking the opportunity to bring back for the first time to “home” Luka Doncic. The Slovenian grew up in Real Madrid, where he played in the youth and first team from 2014 to 2018, winning MVP of the regular season and EuroLega Final Four at a very young age.
For the fans accord at the arena, however, there is a big disappointment: Doncic will be limited to only 5′ of usage tonight. This was confirmed by the Mavs themselves., the reason being a minor right calf problem. Dallas will also not field Kyrie Irving, who was kept at rest due to another physical ailment. So it will be an evening of great basketball, but without the two brightest stars.
