View of the court with Ljubljana in the background

Luka Dončić court

NBA2K has a foundation that works in collaboration with NBA players, renovating basketball courts around the world. When they approached Luka Dončić, the next big thing in the NBA and also a fellow Slovenian, he suggested they renovate the courts in Ljubljana where he played as a kid. I was invited to design and paint the court, and we worked on the graphic together with Luka’s team. It shows his jersey number 77 in various shades of blue, and the color of his team, the Dallas Mavericks.
