ESPN reported tonight that this season and the one before it, the star has returned from the break weighing at least 117kg, although the team has officially reported that he weighs in at about 104kg. If in the player's environment he had previously reasoned his body dimensions on such and such genetic matters, this time Doncic said directly: "I know I have to get better. I had a long summer, I played in the Olympics and then took three weeks off, and relaxed a bit. Maybe I relaxed too much. I just have to get back on track. "

What prevents the Slovenian from getting back into shape is the fact that he is carrying injuries to his knee and ankle in his left leg since the start of the season. Doncic explained that he is "trying to train and play even though it hurts", probably because the Mavericks have lost all four games he has been absent from this season. The Slovenian averages 25.5 points, nearly 8 rebounds and 8.5 assists per game, alongside 44.4% from the field compared to the 47.9% in which he was accurate last season.

Two who are in great shape are Brooklyn Nets stars Kevin Durant and James Harden, who are unwilling to hear a single word about loading themselves up with too many minutes of play, despite the injuries they have suffered in recent years.

KD played more than 40 nights and did not rest at all in the second half, while the bearded guard spent one more minute on the floor, and in the bottom line it helped Steve Nash's team come back from behind 17 and win, even though it did not lead until the middle of the fourth quarter.

"One thing about me and KD, we love to play basketball. We are able to play all 48 minutes, even if we get exhausted. Even if the coach says something, we want to play," Harden clarified, who will meet ex-Houston Rockets tonight when the Nets go on to play for the second time. In two days.

Durant added: "I know people may be worried about my minutes because I've been injured in the past and all that shit, but right now I want to play. There's a situation where I'll play 48 minutes tomorrow, just because I feel like it. So you have something to talk about."
