Luka Doncic Shares an Amazing Moment with Philadelphia 76ers Fan
An amazing moment with Luka Doncic and a 76ers fan in Philadelphia
The Dallas Mavericks took on the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday night as Luka Doncic missed his third straight game. Still, it was the Slovenian phenomenon who stole the show after a special moment with a fan from the opposing team.
Ethan Mullin, a 76ers fan who was court-side, got to meet Doncic pre-game as they took a few photos together. Doncic, who was carrying a basketball, encouraged Mullin to take a shot. Mullin proceeded to drain a jumper from the baseline in nothing but net fashion as Doncic turned back in awe. Mullin then imitated Golden State Warriors point guard D’Angelo Russell’s signature “I got ice in my veins” gesture.
The crowd went wild in what was a very special moment for Ethan and the fans present. Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban tweeted shortly after ‘One of the best shots ever.’
Mullin’s older brother, Kyle, tweeted back at Cuban and replied: “Mr. Cuban, that is my little brother Ethan Mullin. You absolutely made his night and my family cannot thank you enough for hanging out with him. This video literally brought me to tears. He’s going to be glowing for weeks. Wishing you the best and a Merry Christmas from the 215!”
A very remarkable moment.
