Mavs star Luka Doncic is reportedly not happy with his fellow star Kristaps Porzingis. The issue stems from a visit to a Los Angeles strip club during the playoffs.
Now some will say Kristaps is a young man doing what young men do. Sure, but so is Luka and he wants his fellow star focused on making a playoff run not the strip club scene in LA.
From Larry Brown Sports:
Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said in a radio interview in April that Doncic and Porzingis get along fine on the court but have different interests off of it. Porzingis denied having any issues with Doncic. But apparently Luka had some problems recently.
Porzingis was fined $50,000 by the NBA for attending an unspecified type of club on May 23. That apparently was a visit to a Los Angeles strip club during the Mavericks’ playoff series with the Clippers.
Mavs insider Mike Fisher says Doncic was bothered by Porzingis’ violation.
It sounds like Luka is realizing that he's carrying the Mavericks franchise almost entirely by himself. And for good reason he is. He's taking a look around the league and realizing you can't do it by yourself.
Teams are stacked with multiple stars and if Porzingis can't carry his weight then it's time for Dallas to move on.
