On Thursday afternoon after the trade deadline Luka Doncic sat down at a computer and hopped on Reddit to answer questions from fans in an AMA. (For the uninitiated, an AMA is a Q&A on the website Reddit where users can “Ask Me Anything” for interesting or famous individuals.)
Doncic answered questions for about 30 minutes on anything from his time in Spain, weird fan interactions, and trash talking. Here is the full transcript if you want more of it, but some highlights:
Q: Hey Luka! What’s the weirdest fan interaction you have had since arriving in the United States.
A: *Laughs* I was in an Uber, and there was someone running behind the uber. I stopped and signed something for him. Note: Apparently he always does that!
The Uber driver and the fan who ran after him were in the AMA and said hello.
Q: Hey Luka! In your travels with the NBA, what has been your favorite city to visit? (Besides Dallas, of course)
A: Ummm, New York. They are going to say I’m going to New York now. *laughs*
