Graffiti artist and Dallas Mavericks fan Preston Pannek has publicly displayed what we’re all thinking and Dallas owner Mark Cuban isn’t happy about it.
Pannek has created a huge mural in Dallas, expressing fans’ frustrations with the team’s inability to get Luka some help.
The mural has been gaining traction so Pannek emailed Cuban him a picture of the mural expressing his love for the team but explaining his frustrations and safe to say, Cuban didn’t take it too well.
“It’s disrespectful,” Cuban said. “But it’s your choice to do what you want. If that’s the way you want to be a fan. Go for it.”
Here’s Pannek’s side of the story:
“I’m a big fan of the Dallas Mavericks,” he said. “However, like most fans here in Dallas, I’m a little tired of us not being able to get any free agents here. We have arguably the best basketball player in the world and we can’t attract a free agent here, and he’s doing a ridiculous amount of work, and it’s gonna wear him down because we can’t get him any help.”
Luka Doncic has been an absolute machine so far this season and is arguably having the best individual season of any NBA right now. Against the Knicks last month, he posted the first triple double in league history that was 60 points, 21 rebounds and 10 assists.
But the concern is whether it’s possible for Dallas to go all the way without Luka having much help.
