The Lakers hosted the Mavericks at Staples Center, and Bryant was in attendance on the sidelines. The Slovenian point guard encountered a curious exchange with Bryant during one possession.
During one point in the game, Luka was getting ready to resume action from the sidelines when he had a little exchange with the five-time NBA champion, who appeared to be heckling the young player.
After the game, Doncic was asked about the event, giving a response that reminded everybody why Bryant is one of the all-time greats.
“He was talking Slovenian. So I was like, ‘Who’s talking my language?’ I [turned around and] saw Kobe and was really surprised.”
