Analyst and Hall of Famer guard Reggie Miller, working on the TNT broadcast, said during the game that Doncic was “plodding up and down the court” and “has got to trim down.”

Reggie said “this is the heaviest I’ve probably ever seen Luka look, right now.”

“And I know he’s had a long year with the Olympics, but look how he’s plodding up and down,” Miller said. “He’s not really running.”

TNT announcer Kevin Harlan added:

“We’ve done a couple of these Mavs games and when you’re around the team what you hear is he’s worn out… My eyes tell me he’s a little heavier.”

Dončić was asked about his fitness level after the game and he agreed that he needs to do a better job.

“People are going to talk about it, yes or no,” Dončić said. “But I know I’ve got to do better. I had a long summer… I had the Olympics, took three weeks off, and relaxed a little bit. Maybe too much. I’ve just got to get back on track.”

Dončić needs to stay on the court if he wants to get in shape, but because he’s not in great shape, he’s having trouble staying healthy.

It’s a vicious cycle.

Luka is too young to be having weight issues, I mean it’s not like he’s middle aged.

It’s not going to get any easier…
