This is such a bad look for the WNBA.
Dallas Mavericks star and NBA Rookie of the Year Luka Doncic recently appeared in a video pulling for Dallas Wings rookie Arike Ogunbowale to win the same award this summer.
Doncic wished Ogunbowale luck in her own Rookie of the Year bid while holding up her jersey in the Mavericks’ weight room.
“What’s up Arike. I know you’re having a great season, so just keep pushing,” Doncic said. “I know you’re going to be the Rookie of the Year, so the best of luck to you.”
A few hours later, the Minnesota Lynx official Twitter account jumped online and called Doncic out for being a fake supporter of the WNBA.
Dallas sportswriter Brice Paterik fired back at them, calling the tweet a bad look.
Minnesota came right back.
“Not trashing. Just facts,” the team replied. “We have plenty of NBA players (and coaches) at our games, bruh…”
