VIDEO: Mavs’ Luka Doncic shows off crazy baton lightsaber skills
Is it possible his success stems from a connection with an ethereal force?
The Mavs posted a clip of Luka Doncic showing off his baton skills, using graphics to make it appears as though he is a lightsaber-wielding Jedi master as seen in the Star Wars films.

Luka’s handle with the baton is almost as skillful as his handle with the rock.
Doncic’s stupendous sophomore season has been a driving force behind Dallas’ success this season. There were some strange reports suggesting Doncic had fallen out of shape during the hiatus, but he appears to be in good physical condition ahead of the league restart in Orlando later this month.
The Mavs are currently the seventh seed in the Western Conference, but they are also just 1.5 games back of the fifth seed and 2.5 games out of the fourth seed.
Perhaps Doncic will channel some of his inner-Jedi as the Mavericks look to embrace the role of dark horse contender.
