Unlike many of the NBA’s All-Stars, Luka Doncic is a relative unknown in his home country of Slovenia and there are some out there doubting his signature ability.
Plenty of NBA stars are around and haven’t drawn attention like Doncic, but questions continue to surround the straight-shooting youngster who averages 17.7 points and 6.5 assists.
Here are some highlights from Doncic’s Game 1 win over the Knicks Monday night:
Fans at Madison Square Garden were impressed with Doncic’s play. USA TODAY has released their ranking of the league’s 20 best players and Doncic is ranked 13th. Some of the other players on the list are noted veterans such as Jimmy Butler and Carmelo Anthony.
However, a few among the faithful did bring up questions about Doncic’s signature.

Keep in mind that many NBA players have been accused of submitting “BK” signatures as signatures or “DK” signatures on other players’ contracts. And if it’s the latter, that’s bad.
It makes me a little uncomfortable to be around big-time professionals that are being paid well to do this, to entertain people, and they’re disregarding how people will view what they’re doing. — Steve Horstman (@mrghorstman) May 7, 2018
Doncic apparently has a signature design that he has also used on other students he has signed with (he often brings them to the postgame press conferences).
