EuroLeague chatted with the face of the season, Real Madrid‘s Luka Doncic after the championship celebrations.

“We met the King of Spain and some of us cannot still believe it! What we did was truly unbelievable and truly special. We went to the Town Hall and the Community of Madrid government on Monday to present them the trophy, which is the usual stuff we do when we win a title”, tells the Slovenian EuroLeague MVP.

Doncic was asked to comment on winning the season and Final Four MVP honor, an achievement only done by Dimitris Diamantidis, Vassilis Spanoulis and Nando De Colo: “It means a lot. We are talking about three huge players, some of the best players in Europe in the last few years. It is something special, different for me, and I am very, very happy.”

As for donating his Final Four jersey to the Drazen Petrovic Museum, Doncic explains: “Petrovic was a really good player. It is incredible what he did and what he became. If I ever reach his level, it would be awesome. Drazen’s mother asked me for the jersey; she met my Mom, asked for it to put it in Drazen’s museum, and I was more than delighted to give it to her.”
