Luka Doncic’s Mom Taken No. 1 Overall at NBA Draft

Luka Doncic was the talk of the town leading up to the NBA Draft on Thursday night. He’s thought to be the next great European player, with some believing he could surpass Dirk Nowitzki as the greatest European player of all-time.

We won’t have that answer for another 15 years or so. What we do have an answer to is how good his mom was looking at the draft.

No, that’s not his girlfriend giving him a big hug and a kiss on the cheek. That’s his mom. Her name is Mirjam Poterbin and she was a dancer and model before owning her own beauty shop. She was also the real number one overall pick on Thursday.

Luka’s mom caught the attention of every basketball fan on Twitter, including three-time NBA champion Andre Iguodala.

I’d say Iguodala is underselling Doncic’s mom, but he’s a married man, so he has to watch himself. Other twitter users aren’t so married. Or their wife doesn’t check their social media.

I’m sure she won’t have any issues in the Mavericks organization.
