Video: Mavericks’ Luka Doncic channels inner Michael Jordan with the MJ shrug
In just his second year in the league, the 20-year-old has turned a lot of heads this season and has already emerged as the franchise player for the Mavs.
He channeled his inner” MJ” on Monday night against the Boston Celtics when he imitated one of the most iconic shrugs in basketball lore.

With defender Jaylen Brown draped all over him, Doncic unleased a series of crossovers to create some separation at the four-minute mark of Dallas’ road game at the TD Garden.
He managed to do so after performing his favorite step back move, as he launched a deep shot way past the three-point arc that hit nothing but nylon.
Replays showed that Doncic did the Michael Jordan shrug as he got back on defense – which “His Airness” popularized in Game 1 of the 1992 NBA Finals between the Chicago Bulls and Portland Trail Blazers.
