Luka Doncic will return to Madrid to face Real Madrid for the first time with Dallas Mavericks on October 10, 2023. The game will take place at the WiZink Center, the pavilion where he became known, grew up and was established as the best player in Europe to later make the leap to the NBA.
What was an idea of ??both Doncic and Mark Cuban, owner of the franchise, has ended up being confirmed. This is how he commented several months ago about this possibility: "I don't know if we will be able to play a pre-season game in Slovenia, but we are working very hard to play one against Real Madrid."
The game will be spectacular and emotional as a way to honor Doncic's legacy and the role he played at Real Madrid and in the city itself. The Slovenian earned numerous titles and personal recognition between 2015 and 2018. Particularly during his senior year, when he won the League and Euroleague and was named Final Four and Euroleague MVP. Additionally, he was the Endesa League MVP. In 216 games, he participated, tallying 1,922 points, 705 assists, and 905 rebounds.
