Rising - Luka Dončić - Netflix

Luka Dončić (Slovene: [ˈlùːka ˈdòːntʃitʃ]; born February 28, 1999) is a Slovenian professional basketball player for the Dallas Mavericks of the National Basketball Association (NBA). He represents the senior Slovenian national team, which he helped win its first EuroBasket title in 2017. Listed as a 6 ft 7 in (2.01 m), 218-pound (103 kg) guard, he is considered one of the best international prospects of his generation. A native of Ljubljana, Dončić began his basketball career with the youth teams of Slovenian club Union Olimpija, joining at eight years of age. In 2012, he joined Real Madrid in Spain, eventually rising in profile on the reserve team. At age 16, in the 2014–15 season, Dončić debuted for Real Madrid in both the Liga ACB and EuroLeague, becoming the youngest player in club history to suit up in either competition. He found an increasing presence on the senior team in 2016–17, winning the EuroLeague Rising Star and ACB Best Young Player Award. In the 2017–18 season, Dončić assumed a leading role for Real Madrid, replacing its injured star player Sergio Llull for much of the season. Guiding his team to the 2018 EuroLeague title at age 19, he became the youngest recipient of the EuroLeague MVP and EuroLeague Final Four MVP awards. He was also the youngest player to ever be named ACB Most Valuable Player. In addition, Dončić earned EuroLeague Rising Star and ACB Best Young Player accolades for his second straight season. Dončić was projected to be a top-three selection, and a contender for the first overall pick, in the NBA Draft on June 21, 2018. He ended up being selected third overall by the Atlanta Hawks, and was then traded immediately to the Dallas Mavericks.
