Obviously quite close to Luka Doncic, Shaquille O’Neal went to find the Slovenian in his country earlier this month. The two partied and clearly had a good time, at least from how the Big Cactus talks about it. Present in a recent podcast, the legend of the Lakers had only good things to say about the Dallas player.
While he has been making the Mavericks happy for a few seasons now, Luka Doncic has had only one goal since his arrival in Texas: to win the title, and nothing else. He took a new step in the last playoffs by winning two series, before falling against the Warriors of a great Steph Curry. It’s only a postponement for the Slovenian, who hopes to return in September in better shape than ever. Indeed, we know how much the weight of the player has been a problem in the past.
If Doncic already martyrs the opposing defenses, he is not at 100% of his potential physically, and can do better. A sensitive point in Dallas, since Luka usually arrives overweight on recovery. This year, he hopes to land in a different condition, evidenced by his training during summer. Nevertheless, the number 2 of his draft remains above all a party animal, and Shaquille O’Neal can confirm it.
The restless reunion between O’Neal and Doncic abroad!
The two men are quite close, to the point that O’Neal recently traveled to Slovenia to meet the player and find out a little more about his country. Above all, they were able to go party, with a video already viral on the side of social networks. The Big Cactus has since returned, and was able to discuss his adventure abroad in a recent podcast. Spoiler: he liked it a lot.
Shaq on a podcast: “When I arrived at Luka’s town, some people picked me up. They drove me to a mansion that Luka had set me up. I had the pizza there. I had the hookah, I had the fruit.”

Hats off to Luka. When I arrived in his town, a few people came to pick me up. They took me to a mansion that Luka had arranged for me. There was pizza, shisha, fruit. They escorted me to the show, and then there Luka was like, “Shaq, nothing’s gonna happen to you when you’re in my town, Mr. O’Nealovich. That’s what they call me there.
Many thanks to Luka and Goran Dragic for preparing everything. When I was there, Luka told me: “We know you have to stay at the hotel, but we would like you to stay somewhere else. It was a four-bedroom villa, right on the water. He already had his shisha with him.
Even if the Shaq confirms that Doncic still has some bad habits during the summer, he explains above all that the Dallas player is an extraordinary host. The welcome has been great for O’Neal, to the point that it wouldn’t be surprising if he returned to Slovenia very soon.
Luka Doncic wanted to do things right to welcome Shaquille O’Neal, and given the reaction of the person concerned, we can say that it is a largely successful mission. The two men shared a good time in Slovenia, and we doubt it will be the last. The adventures between Luka and the Shaq are far from over.
