After an amazing game during which he couldn’t help his team after the third period due to injury, Luka Doncic who cried on the bench was the happiest 18 years old kid in the world.

“I’m fine it is an ankle injury, in one-two weeks I’ll be fine and ready to go”, said Doncic who also commented on the game, his feelings after the injury and the last minutes of the game: “I could not help my team, but they apparently did not need my help. They won the game, against a very tough opponent, Serbia and I’m really proud of my teammates and coaching staff.” 

As for the final, he added:  “I don’t know. I can’t believe we have won the EuroBasket. We did it! We are European champions, for the first time in our country’s history. I just can’t believe it”.

And after all this, he expects something really big when he returned to Slovenia.
