Sideline cameras and floor cleaners try to get in their cheap shots

We’ve become used to Luka Doncic getting fouled by other players with no calls. But things have taken a new turn as machines have now joined in the process of taking shots at the second-year star player.

Doncic uses his incredible peripheral vision to pull up at the last moment as a camera on a rail nearly rams into him on the sideline. Dallas Morning News embedded reporter Brad Townsend watched the whole thing live and heard the follow up chatter:

How this sort of thing happens in a nearly empty gym is baffling to say the least. Then minutes later the floor wiping crew tried to take him out as well:

Needless to say, we hear at Mavs Moneyball see the NBA’s attempt to stop Luka Doncic before he gets started in Orlando and WE WILL NOT HAVE IT. Should Doncic get hurt by either a machine or a non-participant, the NBA will be recieving a firmly worded letter from our lawyers. Stop trying to hurt Luka Doncic, NBA.

Protect Luka at all costs!

UPDATE: THE GOOD GUYS WIN. Thanks to Brad Townsend, fighting for the good of the order.
