Luka Doncic is known for indulging in his hobby of playing Blizzard’s hit first-person hero shooter game, Overwatch 2. However, now he’s reached even more heights as he shows off his recent achievements in the game.

Does Luka Doncic play Overwatch 2?

Most NBA fans know this, but the Dallas Mavericks point guard does play Overwatch 2. If he’s not dominating on the court, he’s dominating in the 5-vs-5 landscape as a tank player.

He recently took to Instagram to post about his top 500 badge, which is not an easy thing to do. That’s already if you’re committing much time to the game. However, he’s also currently vying for the NBA championships

To put that into perspective, reaching one of the highest ranks in the game is already a time-consuming ordeal for an average person. Add that to the fact that he’s one of the franchise players for the Mavericks, and that makes it even more extraordinary. Moreover, he’s not only the highest rank in the game but is now in the top 500 of his region.

They convincingly beat the Los Angeles Clippers 4-2. However, they lost their first game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, their next matchup.

It turns out the guard likes to grind another game when he’s not playing basketball.

Basketball Players Have Other Hobbies Too

It isn’t easy to separate the athlete from the actual person. Sometimes, fans think they live and breathe basketball. However, that’s not true, as Doncic shows with his Overwatch “hobby.”

This isn’t even the first time Doncic showed off his gaming prowess. Just last year, an Overwatch streamer recognized him while playing a game.

However, he’s not the only player who surprises fans with their gaming hobby. It turns out Nikola Jokic is also part of the gaming community. Moreover, he looked happy when reporters asked him questions different from those in the usual interviews. For those that want to know, he plays top and mains Illaoi and Urgot.
