Luka Dončić na tekmi vseh košarkarskih zvezd dočakal svoj trenutek

Luka Dončić awaits his moment at the All-Star basketball game

Written by Sabina Lavrič, translated by JL Flanner & G Translate

Mladi slovenski košarkarski biser Luka Dončić je dočakal zgodovinski dan v svoji karieri – zaigral je na tekmi zvezd lige NBA All Star.

The young Slovenian basketball pearl Luka Dončić celebrated a historic day in his career - he played in an NBA All-Star game.

Ljubitelji košarke so z zanimanjem pričakovali zvezdniško tekmo v Chicagu, kjer je minuli konec tedna vladala prava norišnica.

Basketball fans were eagerly awaiting a star-studded game in Chicago, where a real mania took hold last weekend.

Vse skupaj se je začelo že v petek s tekmo vzhajajočih zvezd, na kateri je zaigral tudi Luka. Navdušil je s trojko kar s sredine igrišča!

It all started on Friday with the Rising Stars match, with Luka playing as well. He impressed with a three-pointer right from the middle of the field!

Na dobrodelnem dogodku pred obračunom je spoznal tudi nekdanjega ameriškega predsednika Baracka Obamo, kar mu bo gotovo ostalo v lepem spominu.

He also met the former US President Barack Obama at a charity event before the showdown, which will surely remain in his memory.

Tekmi vzhajajočih zvezd je sledilo tekmovanje v metanju trojk, pa v zabijanju, v nedeljo pa je bila na vrsti tista prava tekma najboljših med najboljšimi.

The Rising Stars Game was followed by a Three-Point Contest and a Slam-Dunk Contest, and on Sunday it was the real match of the best of the best.

Luka je kot drugi Slovenec, po Goranu Dragiću, dobil priložnost zaigrati na tekmi All Star. Izbrali so ga navijači, košarkarji lige in novinarji.

Luka is the second Slovenian, after Goran Dragić, to be given the opportunity to play in the All-Star game. He was selected by fans, basketball players in the league and reporters.

Ni veliko manjkalo, da bi bil celo kapetan moštva. Ta vloga je nato pripadla LeBronu Jamesu, ki je ekipo popeljal do zmage. Rezultat je bil 157 : 155.

He came very close to being team captain. That role fell to LeBron James, who led the team to victory. The result was 157: 155.

Obramba na tekmi ni bila tako pomembna kot to, da so se gledalci in košarkarji zabavali ter zabili čim več košev.

The defence in the match was not as important as keeping the spectators and basketball players entertained and scoring as many baskets as possible.

Letos je bila tekma All Star posvečena nedavno preminulima Kobeju Bryantu in njegovi hčerki Gianni.

This year, the All-Star match was dedicated to the recently deceased Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna.

Vsi košarkarji LeBronove ekipe so na tekmi nosili dres s številko 2, ki jo je nosila Gianna, igralci moštva Giannisa Antetokounmpa pa so imeli na hrbtu 24, ki jo je nosil Kobe.

All of LeBron's team basketball players wore a number 2 jersey at the game, which was worn by Gianna, and Giannis Antetokounmpo's players had a 24 on their back, which was worn by Kobe.

Še ena dobra novica za slovenske navijače – Luka je potrdil, da bo igral za slovensko reprezentanco v kvalifikacijah za olimpijske igre!

Another good news for Slovenian fans - Luka has confirmed that he will play for the Slovenian national team in qualifying for the Olympic Games!
