Most NBA players hate matinee games with the white-hot fury of the twin suns of Tatooine. Luka Doncic is not one of them though.
The Dallas Mavericks star Doncic made comments this weekend for his unusual opinion about the NBA schedule. Dallas faced the Knicks in New York on Saturday in a day game that tipped off at 12:30 p.m. local time. The Mavs won easily 121-100.
After the game, Doncic, who put up a game-high 30 points, surprisingly said that he enjoys early games because they leave the rest of his day free.
The MVP candidate also said to make NBA commissioner Adam Silver aware that he wants to play in as many day games as possible.
