Doncic’s Lack of Support: “Blasphemies” Against the Referees and Punishment
Luka Doncic, the Slovenian basketball star player and key player of the Dallas Mavericks has been under scrutiny for his recent behavior on the court. Doncic has been seen on numerous occasions lashing out at referees for calls he doesn’t agree with, expressing his frustration to his teammates, and on occasion, speaking out to the media. This behavior has caused a lot of backlash and concern from the NBA community as well as fans, and has overshadowed his impressive performance during the games.
Doncic’s Support System
One issue that has been raised in regards to Doncic’s behavior is the lack of support he is receiving from his team. Some fans and experts argue that no player can achieve success in basketball or any sport for that matter without a strong support system. While Doncic’s talent is undeniable, it is argued that he needs more support from his team, especially in difficult moments of a game.
A lack of support system could contribute to Doncic’s frustrations that result in outbursts against referees.
“Blasphemies” Against the Referees
One notable incident that highlights the issue of Luka Doncic’s behavior towards referees happened during the Mavericks’ game against the Sacramento Kings on April 26th. Doncic received a technical foul for arguing with the referees and later on, according to NBA reports, he was heard cussing and blaspheming at the referees in a language that is not English in the team’s huddle. This lack of control over his temper and his disrespect towards officials have caused concern about the player’s ability to lead a team towards success in high-pressure situations.
Players must find ways to express their frustrations without diminishing the respect they should hold towards the referees.
Punishment in the Form of Penalties

In a post-game interview with Tim MacMahon of ESPN, NBA Vice President of Basketball Operations Kiki VanDeWeghe expressed that “there will be some downsides to this type of behavior from any player that does it.”
Professional athletes ought to understand that detrimental behavior towards the game’s officials and the league overall will lead to penalties.
