Luka Doncic has found himself in an awkward position after making a harmless video showing support for a local WNBA team.
The Mavericks guard and reigning NBA Rookie of the Year took to Twitter to wish Dallas Wings rookie Arike Ogunbowale good luck as she competes for the honor of being the WNBA’s rookie of the year.
The person running the Minnesota Lynx Twitter account didn’t believe Doncic was being genuine about his support and called him out on it.
Fans were clearly not happy with the Lynx for shading Doncic when the league is desperately trying to attract eyeballs.
Lynx forward Napheesa Collier, who is also in contention for rookie of the year honors, had a tongue in cheek response to the team’s controversial tweet.
