Dallas Mavericks superstar Luka Doncic is not phased by personal accomplishments. Doncic is currently taking part in the FIBA World Cup as part of the Slovenian National Team, and the Mavs star has narrowly missed out on recording the first triple-double in FIBA World Cup history multiple times over the last week.
However, Doncic apparently couldn't care less about whether he reaches this milestone or not.
“I don't care one bit about that. I just want to win,” Doncic said, per BasketNews.
If winning is his goal, it appears that the Slovenian National Team is on the right track. The team has recorded three straight wins over the last week, dropping off Venezuela, Georgia, and Cape Verde in consecutive contests.
In the Georgia game in particular, Luka Doncic was absolutely sensational, scoring 34 points, snagging 10 rebounds, and dishing out 6 assists in Slovenia's 88-67 win.
However, it seems that, as is the case when he suits up in the NBA for the Mavs, Doncic is more concerned with championship hardware than individual accolades.
In his time with the Mavs, Doncic has accumulated most every individual award imaginable short of an NBA MVP trophy. Still, his goal has always been to lead Dallas to its first NBA championship since 2011. While the Mavs got relatively close to that goal in 2022, reaching the Western Conference Finals, Dallas fell all the way down to 11th in this past season's standings, missing the play-in entirely.
When Doncic and the Mavs return to training camp next month, the Slovenian star will hope to have some national team hardware stored in his locker.
