The loyal following of the Dallas Mavericks have a lot to celebrate for these days, as the marvelous play of Luka Doncic has given the team new hope for the years to come. Among those thrilled by the Mavs future is millionaire super fan Jimmy Goldstein, who even managed to snag a quick photo-op with the Slovenian sensation prior to tip off of the Mavericks versus Los Angeles Lakers game at Staples Center on Sunday.

A sideline staple who has been attending almost 95 percent of Lakers and Clippers home games since the '60s, the flamboyantly dressed super fan also travels around the country to attend games in different cities.
The 79-year-old fan has been a Lakers regular season ticket-holder since the team first moved to Los Angeles. Former NBA Commissioner David Stern once described Goldstein as the NBA's “largest investor in tickets in the world”.
“He probably has the largest investment of any fan in America, so we get a kick out of him. He has got quite a flair, and we love him as a sort of a superfan,” he said of the passionate fan.
Having been around for the Lakers' multiple championships over the years, Goldstein, of course, has been around many All-Time greats throughout the years. The Lakers have their fair share of superstars in LeBron James and Anthony Davis, but Goldstein certainly won't pass up an opportunity to share a moment with one of the brightest stars in the league today in Doncic.
The Lakers (25-7) and the Mavericks (21-10), meanwhile, have split their first two match ups of the 2019-20 NBA regular season.
