Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic never fails to attract attention with his on-court performances. One of the top prospects for the MVP title is currently averaging 33.8 points, 9.0 rebounds, and 8.8 assists per game. However, recently, the Slovenian international also managed to turn heads with his unique choice of vehicle. The media caught up with Doncic when the latter arrived for the game against the Atlanta Hawks, but the mighty sight of his ride not only snatched the media’s attention but piqued NBA fans’ interests as well.

It seems like Luka Doncic likes to grab the spotlight wherever he goes. While this time it was his ride, the last time it was his outfit choice. The Dallas Mavericks star had shown up in a head-to-toe cowboy get-up several hours before the Christmas Day game against the Los Angeles Lakers, leaving people with various kinds of reactions.

Hours before the Mavericks were set to face the Hawks, Doncic arrived at the stadium in what looked like a military-grade matte black tank. Based on the image uploaded by Cassidy Hubbarth of ESPN, the six-wheeler truck is an Apocalypse 6×6 model named ‘Hellfire’. The intimidating vehicle seems to compliment Doncic perfectly, given the 23-year-old Mavs point guard’s unstoppable nature on the hardwood.

While the Mavs are currently facing a speed bump in their recent smooth run, the mighty sight of Doncic exiting a ‘monster truck’ managed to become a highlight for fans.
