An unusual move
Luka Doncic, the Slovenian star for the Mavericks, had an unusual moment during the game, prompting the ejection of a fan who repeatedly insulted him. Amazingly, Doncic personally addressed members of the pavilion’s security to ensure that the fan was excluded from the venue.
In the press conference after the defeat, Doncic confronted the journalist Tim MacMachon, who had captured the images of the expulsion. The discordance arose because of MacMahon’s interpretation, which was considered unsatisfactory by Doncic.
Insults i Regrets
Amidst the argument, MacMachon admitted that the fan had repeatedly taunted Doncic during the first half of the game. The player, despite regretting his decision to get security involved, explained: “I don’t like kicking out a fan who has paid for their ticket, but I got fed up. Now I’m going to be the bad guy in the press, am I?” .
Debate on Social Networks
The dispute continued on social media, with a verbal exchange between Doncic and MacMahon over a tweet from the reporter highlighting the incident. The player expressed his perception that negative news about him is always highlighted.
