Luka Doncic is a huge LeBron James fan, so it came as no surprise that the Mavericks star rookie waited outside the Lakers locker room after a loss to get a jersey signed by the GOAT.
Check out these snaps of a very happy Doncic getting his James’ jersey signed and personalized.

Here’s the jersey up close.
"I always wanted his jersey. It was something special to me" — Luka Doncic on the jersey LeBron signed for him after Mavs-Lakers

Doncic got the chance to play against LeBron in Dallas 114-113 loss to Los Angeles. That itself has to be a dream come true (besides not getting the W). Adding a game-worn, signed jersey from LeBron? That’s icing on the cake for the 19-year-old.
Despite being an amazing NBA talent, Doncic is still a huge fan of LeBron.That jersey will be a prized possession for the rest of his life.
