An NBA Star Is A Big Fan Of Luka Doncic's Mother

Luka Doncic and his mother Mirjam Poterbin pose ahead of the NBA Draft.

Luka Doncic was the No. 3 pick of the NBA Draft tonight. His mom might be making more headlines.

Doncic's mom, Mirjam Poterbin, is a former model. She's been very supportive of her son throughout his career.

She also seems to be enjoying herself at the draft tonight. While she's been there, she's made an impression on at least one NBA star.

Golden State Warriors forward Andre Iguodala is watching the draft, even though his team doesn't pick until late in the first round. Iggy clearly is a fan of Doncic's mother.

Iguodala isn't much for subtlety. Obviously the former model caught his eye for her looks.

He's probably not the only one to notice her tonight.

Doncic, the 19-year-old Slovenian sensation, was picked third overall by the Atlanta Hawks. However, Atlanta had a pre-planned trade in place, and sent Doncic to the Dallas Mavericks for the No. 5 pick, Trae Young, and next year's first-rounder.

Doncic will now play with Dennis Smith Jr. in Dallas. Not bad at all.
