Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic was asked what would be his pick if he had to choose between claiming 2022 All-Star Game MVP and his former club Real Madrid winning the Spanish Copa del Rey.

Real Madrid wins Copa del Rey for sure. Easy,” Doncic answered. Real will be facing archrival Barcelona in the Cup Final Sunday (20/2), some hours before the Slovenian player makes his third consecutive All-Star Game appearance.

Doncic joined the Real Madrid academies at 13 years of age and made his professional debut with the club in 2015. He emerged as one of the most important players of the team by the next year to ultimately become the star that led the Blancos to the 2018 EuroLeague championship, some months before he joined the Mavericks.

While Doncic was a starter in the 2020 and 2021 All-Star Game, he didn’t make the cut this year despite putting up impressive numbers. So far in 2021-22, he’s averaging nearly a triple-double with 27.5 points, 9.2 rebounds and 9.0 assists.
