Luka Doncic hasn’t played a minute of the 2021 season yet, but the Dallas Mavericks star is already making highlight plays … by donating Jordan shoes and other merch to children at local hospitals!!!
The 22-year-old wanted to give back to his new home ahead of the new campaign, so he put together goodie bags filled with the sneaks, hoodies, socks, bags, letters and signed photos for 80 kids at Children’s Health in Dallas and Plano.
On top of the swag, Luka also provided a “Luka and Bobi” coloring book, which features a story of his friendship with teammate Boban Marjanovic, as well as individual-sized pizzas with pepperonis in the shape of his #77 AND dessert to kids and staffers throughout the hospital.
Luka spoke about the gesture, saying he wanted to hand deliver the gifts to all the kids, but wasn’t able to due to health and safety concerns.
“I really wish I could have been there to meet and talk to the kids but hopefully this surprise brought a smile to their faces and encouraged them to stay strong,” Doncic said.
“I just want all the kids and parents to know I’m thinking of them!”
The kids certainly felt the love … and the pics and videos from the big surprise will warm your heart.
Awesome stuff, Luka.
