#LukaDoncic Autographs Quest: Why NBA players are denying latest internet rumours

It is becoming all too familiar. Another hip-hop recording has gone viral and soon you can’t get it on the internet without seeing players from multiple teams linked to it.

Very quickly, an internet hashtag spawns and this time it is #LukaDoncic Autographs Quest and it has grown in popularity since the 19-year-old point guard from Spain was drafted in the first round of the June NBA Draft.

Some of the players connected to the recording are clear – Gasol and Miles both have their names on it.

But others have been around the fringe of the speculation which suggested that Doncic would be able to turn heads regardless of where he played or where he was drafted.

Fans begin to believe the rumours and follow their likes on Instagram. Others – like Lebron James and James Harden, who have also been linked with Doncic – go back and share their autographs that they feel will quash the rumours.

The internet filters are fighting back as the youngsters and NBA legends begin to deny any connection. They include the six-time NBA champion LeBron James and Dallas Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle.

Some of the players involved and the pictures associated with the autographs all have a huge appeal and appeal that is unlikely to be dented any time soon.

Doncic is seen as a player who can earn the team success even if he does not return to the Spanish league next season.

The Atlanta Hawks have four first-round draft picks next year and Doncic could make an impression either by being sent there or helping to bring some success.

He is also eligible for USA Basketball’s select team next year, although a stellar season in the NBA could win him a place with the European championship that is also held in 2021.

For most, though, this week has revolved around a photography series called GOAT (Greatest Of All Time) which has gone viral.

Doncic’s backing for the project has no doubt helped to strengthen the cause of the series which features an array of basketball players addressing their god or the greatest player of all time.

The series has not yet taken off in the way that some fans want it to but, regardless, Doncic’s name has been mentioned.
