There is no question that Luka Doncic is the face of the Dallas Mavericks. The 22-year-old Slovenian quickly turned the reigns from Dirk Nowitzki with whom he played during his rookie year.

Mavs legend shared a story on social media which perfectly illustrates Luka’s impact on the team’s fans. Nowitzki, who led Dallas to its only championship in 2011, is used to signing his jerseys but now it’s not his jersey that people ask him to sign.

“Germans friends that come visit always buy jerseys. I say: hold on let me get a sharpie and they say: oh no. That’s ok. This is actually Luka’s. Do you mind getting it signed…” Nowitzki tweeted.
