Mark Cuban has evidenced a radio station in Dallas to criticize Luka Doncic that this is not the right fitness state and be overweight.
“I think that has grounded him a bit,” Cuban said at an interview with the radio station 1310 The Ticket. “I think he did not like being criticized for his weight and other things and now it has made it with him that a certain level of discipline is necessary.”
“Each athlete goes through a phase at a certain point of time, in which everything goes slightly from the hand and you get used to it always be the best. If then, sometimes suddenly does not run according to plan, lets that think things rethink”, Cuban explained.
Doncic himself was admitted in December last year that his fitness status was not optimal and he must find “back in the track”. According to information of espn he has now removed more than 7 kilos and is close to the weight he had as rookie.
