Luka did you really trashed Snoop Snoopy Dogg?

As the Dallas Mavericks throttled down the Minnesota Timberwolves in the Western Conference Finals, the adrenaline rushed high under Luka Doncic’s skin.

The rage looked real on the Slovenian giant’s face as he was seen trashing someone on the sidelines who seemed to be poking him for long. As videos started surfacing after the game, the basketball as well as the rap music community was left in shock.


Someone noticed that Doncic was putting his harsh words at rapper Snoop Dogg as it was evident from one angle. Soon after the social media buzz, the video also showed Snoop’s face as he burst into laughter after being trashed at.


Although, the momentary speculation was short lived as one of the always active social media fans dropped another angle of the scene.


However, it was confirmed later down the line that Doncic was not going after the legendary rapper Snoop Dogg. He was directing his harsh words straight to a Timberwolves fan sitting just behind Snoop who made a crying gesture at the Mavs star.

The revelation came whe NBA reporter Dave McMenamin clarified that it was the fan behind Snoop Dogg who had made a crying emoji gesture towards Doncic, sparking the player's NSFW reaction. 

Despite the clarification, initial confusion led to speculative reports suggesting that Doncic's taunt was directed at Snoop Dogg, generating widespread attention and prompting numerous fan reactions and debates on social media.
