Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic breaks silence on Texas shooting: ‘It’s a disaster’

After the game in which the Dallas Maverick beat Golden State 119-109, the Slovenian Luka Doncic spoke about the shooting recorded this Tuesday in Texas, which he described as “a disaster” and showed his respect for the relatives of the victims.

The star player of the Dallas Mavericks, Luka Doncic joined the multiple personalities of the NBA and sports in general who rejected the recorded shooting at a Texas school , in which at least 19 children were killed on Tuesday.

The Slovenian did not hold anything back and described the event as a disaster while expressing that this type of thing should never happen. “I don’t think anything could be worse. It’s a disaster. I think that shouldn’t happen anywhere,” he said.

In that sense, Doncic expressed that he felt “very sorry” for what happened . This after having achieved the victory of his team 119-109 against the Golden State Warriors to place the series 1-3 and keep alive the hope of advancing to the final of the Western Conference of the NBA.

In that same game, Warriors coach Steve Kerr issued a harsh criticism of Republicans who have come out against proposals to establish gun control in the United States.

“In the last ten days, we’ve had elderly Black men killed in a Buffalo supermarket, Asian churchgoers killed in Southern California, and now we have children killed at school. When are we going to do something?!” Kerr shouted to the media.

These statements by Kerr came in the run-up to the meeting between the Dallas and Golden State teams, which observed a minute of silence before kick-off as a sign of respect and condolences to the families of the victims of said tragedy.
