Fans started trolling him heavily after that. The tweet received more than 13,000 likes within an hour. Even though Wayne has not stated clearly why he made this tweet, there are a number of reasons that he could be frustrated with Luka, whether he is or is not a Suns fan.

Is this the reason Lil Wayne is frustrated with Luka Doncic?

His performance never disappoints the fans since Luka has a great way to do offense. There are some people, however, who get annoyed when he challenges the opponent. By taking advantage of the rules, he gets free trips to the line.

During this season, he has been known as the worst flopper in the league. The Minnesota Timberwolves player Patrick Beverley shared his experience while guarding Luka. He’s physical as f*** and flops at the same time, which is the same thing I do,” Patrick Beverley said.

“Swipe at me, “oh he’s trying to kill me, ref, get him, he’s trying to kill me. He’s the exact same like he initiates the contact and hits you… It’s not muscle with him, and that’s no discredit to his body or anything. That’s just how he’s made, it’s kind of that flabby solid type… you can’t really guard him physically the way I want to guard him.

As for Wayne after this, he got a lot of fans trolling him for his actions. There were even some who said: “About Time Someone Call His Flopping A** Out”.
