Dallas Mavericks star rookie Luka Doncic isn’t taking much time to fit into the NBA’s culture of trolling and petty.
Even before his first regular season game as a member of the team, the No. 3 pick from Slovenia is already putting fellow former lottery selection Dennis Smith Jr. in his place.
The guard is shown posting a video to his Facebook account, asking for a shoutout from Doncic to his hometown of Fayetteville, NC.
Doncic was having none of it. And it was all sorts of amazing.

It appears that the troll game in Slovenia is just as spot on as here in the United States.
Though, to Smith’s defense, that city has a metro population of nearly 380,000. We’re pretty sure more than seven people were watching, not all of them family members.
Next up in this series, Smith trolls Doncic’s hometown of Ljubljana. Please, make it happen.
