The holiday season brought joy to the Dallas Mavericks as their star, Luka Doncic, showed his generosity by giving away electric bicycles of the prestigious brand "Mercedes" to his teammates, coaches and support staff. When the players entered the locker room, expressions of surprise and gratitude graced their faces.

An elegant "Mercedes" electric bicycle was shown in a certain place for each individual, Luka Doncic's gesture and his gratitude for the whole team. Priced at $3,450 per unit, these premium e-bikes made for a unique and lavish Christmas gift.

The generous act took place before the game against San Antonio, which the Mavericks won convincingly. This is not the first time that Luka shows his festive spirit. Last year he handed out cookies to fans. Fans then jostled to get a cookie from their pet.

A surprise after the game

After the win against the San Antonio Spurs, the Mavericks, led by Doncic, unveiled their lavish locker room environment decorated with dozens of electric bicycles, a gift that extended to the entire team, coaches and support staff.

Even after a standout performance in the game, including a triple-double with 10 assists, Luka's generosity continued to shine through. That act is an example of the spirit of giving that is deeply embedded in Doncic. As the Mavericks prepare to celebrate Christmas in Phoenix against the Suns, fans expect to witness more magic from Doncic, who is on the verge of reaching a significant milestone in his NBA career.

He needs just 11 points in the upcoming game and is aiming to join an elite group of players, potentially becoming the seventh fastest in history to reach 10,000 points. Coach Jason Kidd, who witnessed most of Luka's journey to this milestone, acknowledges the Slovenian's past contributions and the key role they played in positioning him for this achievement.

"When you're 12, 13, 14 and you go to a different country (Real Madrid, in Spain) to understand how to play the game," Kidd said. "They taught him the game at a high level. His dad played the game. I think it's just in the blood, the DNA, of knowing how to play at a very, very high level.

"Luka, he's in the 1 percent of basketball players - Giannis, Embiid, Joker - those are the names mentioned with him. I think it's just the fundamentals of his talent, his build, his speed which makes him special."
