- The Dallas star regrets the new episode of armed violence in the United States and says he is sad at such a “disaster”
- 19 children, a teacher and the alleged murderer died in a small Texas town 600 kilometers from the Slovenian’s place of residence in the United States
- On a sporting level, the Mavericks survived one more game and will travel to San Francisco down 3-1 in the tie but with faith in a comeback
Luka Doncic showed his sadness and pain for the shooting in which at least 19 children were killed in a school in Texas, United States, and assured that something like this should not happen anywhere.
“I don’t think anything could be worse. It’s a disaster. I think that shouldn’t happen anywhere,” Doncic said, noting that he felt “very sorry” for this tragedy.
The Slovenian led the Dallas Mavericks, who won 119-109 against the Golden State Warriors and remained so with options in the NBA West Final (1-3).
The fourth game of this series was played in Dallas (Texas, USA), which is about 600 kilometers from the small town of Uvalde in which at least 19 children died, a teacher as well as the person responsible for the shooting.
The Mavericks and Warriors held a minute of silence before a meeting that, in the previous one, was marked by the passionate and furious speech of Steve Kerr, coach of Golden State and who attacked the Republicans for rejecting the control of firearms.
“In the last ten days, we’ve had elderly black men killed in a Buffalo grocery store, Asian churchgoers killed in Southern California, and now we have children killed at school. When are we going to do anything?! ” Kerr before the media.
Doncic trusts like a good madridista
Strictly speaking, Doncic, who was only one assist away from the triple-double (30 points, 14 rebounds, 9 assists), was satisfied with the work of his team and especially highlighted the defensive improvement and aggressiveness in the paintwork.
“Those two things are key and that’s what we have to bring to San Francisco,” he said of Game 5 on Thursday.
“We are going to believe, as I always say, until the end. So we have to go game by game and hopefully we win (the next match),” he added in a curious mix of merengue and mattress philosophy.
Finally, Doncic said he was very happy for his inclusion in the best quintet in the NBA for the third consecutive season, an acknowledgment that was announced before the game against the Warriors.
“It’s a blessing. As a child, I always dreamed of being in the NBA and my third selection for the best five in the NBA is really a blessing. I am very happy and grateful,” he said.
