An Overwatch 2 Twitch streamer got a big surprise when NBA star and Dallas Mavericks point guard Luka Doncic randomly ended up on his team. Doncic, an out and proud Overwatch player and, concerningly, Hanzo/Genji main, was playing Zarya in the grandmaster match, which streamer M0xy was beaming live to the Twitch masses.
“You got any hobbies, Donatello?” he asks as they guard the first point on Numbani, referring to the Zarya player in question by his gamer tag. “Yeah I play basketball,” Donatello answers after hitting the emote that makes Zarya say “privyet.” “Okay, like you go to a gym or you play on a team?” the streamer asks.
Donatello’s answer is so simple and said with such an astonishing lack of emotion and the perfect Slovenian accent that we have no choice but to stan: “Dallas Mavericks.” This immediately causes two of the players in the match to ask if he means “varsity” or like, the real thing. “No, no, real,” Donatello says. The clip cuts to a later point in the match, where it seems like the squad has been grilling him for quite some time about his identity. “When’s your birthday?” they ask. “28th of February,” he responds.
All week long
On account of the upcoming Friday, March 10 in the year of our King Koopa, 2023, a whole bunch of Mario games are going on sale
But what makes all this even more perfect is that Doncic is a grandmaster Overwatch player, which means he’s the highest rank you can possibly get before breaking into the global top 500. This dude is good
