Since the Mavericks traded for Kyrie Irving, the team has gone 7-12. When both Doncic and Irving play together, the team has gone 3-7. Dallas is currently out of the Play-In Tournament and looking to get to the 10th seed, or better, again.

With their struggles comes a frustrated Luka Doncic, who has been frustrated for many reasons – not just basketball. Many fans have been turning on Kyrie already with them booing him in their loss to the Hornets.

This is what Luka Doncic said after their loss to Charlotte:

“We got to fight hard, play harder,” said Doncic. “That’s about it. We got to show we care and it starts with me first. I’ve just got to lead this team, being better, playing harder. It’s on me.”

With that being said, Doncic admits that finding joy on the court has been difficult.

“I think you can see it with me on the court,” Doncic said. “Sometimes I don’t feel it’s me. I’m just being out there. I used to have really fun, smiling on court, but it’s just been so frustrating for a lot of reasons, not just basketball.”

Lastly, with everything he has said, personal issues in his life have been getting the best of him. He cited issues as the reason why he is upset beyond basketball when asked what was bothering him.

Dallas (36-38) gets their rematch Sunday morning against Charlotte (24-51).
