VIDEO: Mavs star Luka Doncic shares funny reaction to pulling off Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s skyhook

Mavs, Luka Doncic, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic couldn’t help but react and share a pun about his viral Kareem Abdul-Jabbar impersonation over the weekend.

Doncic made rounds on social media after helping Slovenia beat Sweden, 84-81, in their FIBA World Cup qualifier on Sunday. One specific play got the attention of Mavs supporters and NBA fans in general, as the playmaker nailed a Kareem-like skyhook during the showdown.

On Monday, Doncic shared the clip of the play and posted it on his Instagram with a hilarious caption.

“How do you like your coffee? With a little kareeeem,” Doncic wrote along with a laughing and coffee emoji.

Hey, we’re giving it to Luka Doncic this time. That’s as smooth as the skyhook he just pulled off.

This should also be a warning to Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo. It looks like Doncic is going for his title as the king of dad jokes and puns in the NBA.

In all seriousness, though, imagine what Luka can do if he adds that move to his arsenal. Although it won’t be as potent and unstoppable as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s skyhook given their height difference and the way they use it, the move will still make the Mavs superstar harder to guard.

Besides, if Doncic can also ask Dirk Nowitzki to help him improve his one-legged fadeaway, Luka could have two of the deadliest offensive moves in the history of the league!
