This past weekend, the Dallas Mavericks took on the Los Angeles Lakers, and the game came with several surprises. The new golden boy of the Texas team, Luka Doncic, played LeBron James, and while this might seem like a regular encounter with teams, Doncic credits James for inspiring him to get where is he is today.\nDuring the game, the two were head to head. Both of them scored around 40 points for the respective teams. The two couldn’t help but start an endearing bromance, and all of us are here for it.\nView this post on Instagram A post shared by martkp11 (@martkp11) on Nov 3, 2019 at 9:06am PST\nJames said, "I was able to inspire a kid that wasn’t even in America, and that’s pretty special.” about his new friend.
