The future of the NBA is in good hands with Dallas Mavericks superstar Luka Doncic.

It seems the Slovenian point guard is hitting a buzzer-beater on ESPN or recording a triple-double every two seconds. The clutch gene must be strong in his mother Mirjam Poterbin and father Sasa Doncic because his crunch-time shots always seem to go in no matter the degree of difficulty.

Regards to the Los Angeles Clippers and Memphis Grizzlies.

The 22-year-old is already one of the best NBA players in the same ranks as LeBron James, Steph Curry, and Kevin Durant. The explosion in fame hasn’t changed his dedication to his roots.

The basketball player has known his model girlfriend since he was 12.

The couple started dating in 2016 before splitting for a short time and reconnecting in 2018. After Luka was selected third overall in the 2018 NBA Draft by the Atlanta Hawks and traded to the Mavs, Goltes moved with him to the Lone Star State.

Goltes, a fellow Slovenia native, is a model and dancer while also promoting fitness. She previously studied business and economics at the University of Ljubljana prior to her modeling career taking over while Luka was developing on Real Madrid.

She is active on social media and regularly posts on her Instagram story and goes on Instagram Live to answer questions about her and Luka’s life.

During quarantine for the coronavirus pandemic, the two were able to spend a lot of quality time together and with their dogs Hugo and Gia.

The couple travels a lot for their respective careers and seem to have found a home base in northern Texas. Goltes told a fan during an Instagram Live session that Dallas is starting to feel more like home, according to the New York Post.

“Dallas is a lot like Europe,” she said. “I love Dallas. It reminds me of home.”

Luka — the 2019 NBA Rookie of the Year, 2020 All-NBA First Team member, two-time NBA All-Star, and perennial MVP candidate — continues to dominate the competition on the basketball court.

Goltes’ biggest competition for her boyfriend’s heart is Boban Marjanovic.
