The NBA has it’s fair share of prodigies. Be it Atlanta’s very own Trae Young or Pelicans’ Zion Williamson, many young stars have become the focal part of the team. But perhaps the biggest young star in the league right now is Luka Doncic.

Doncic who started off his career back with Spanish basketball giants Real Madrid, immediately shut his doubters as he dominated the league. Three seasons since his debut, Luka has become one of the most talented players in the league and is already one of the favorites to win the MVP trophy.

While his contemporary Trae Young has embraced himself as the league’s villain, Doncic is generally the player having the most fun on the court. Be it talking to rival team’s players or smiling throughout the game, Doncic rarely loses his temper.

Luka Doncic goes berserk on Terrence Mann

While Doncic is generally one of the most chilled out players on the court, he has had his fair share of troubles against the Clippers. Often running into LAC in the playoffs. Luka has never made it past the Clippers. Given how tough last season’s playoff loss was, tensions were surely high when the two faced off against each other in a recent pre-season game.

While the Clippers did miss Kawhi, they looked solid against Doncic with multiple players stepping in. One of them was Terrence Mann. Mann, who impressed last season with his playoff exploits has had an increased role in the team off-late. The duo went at it against each other in the most recent pre-season game.

With the ball in his hands, Luka tried to shoot a mid-range over Terrence Mann. But the 24-year-old was up for the task as he harrowed down Doncic and eventually the Slovenian even received a foul call.

Doncic was certainly not the happiest and seeing Terrence Mann speaking trash, Doncic lost it and said, “shut the f*ck up”. This is certainly one of the rare moments where Luka went absolutely crazy on a player. This only goes onto show how tough an NBA game regardless of when it is played is still intense.
