2K Foundations x Luka Dončić
It’s not every day you get the opportunity to refurbish a court for the community in Slovenia. But when Luka Dončić was announced the NBA 2K22 cover athlete that’s exactly what we did.
What we did
Growing up in Slovenia, basketball was one of the most popular sports and with a court directly behind his home, it’s no wonder how Luka Dončić picked up the game and became one of the best to do it. Riding the heels of the NBA 2K22 cover athlete announcement, he took us straight back to where it all began - Ljubljana.
With the help of the Basketball Federation of Slovenia and 2K Foundations, we were able to refurbish Luka’s home court where he grew up learning the game. To bring the court to life and incorporate Luka into the design, Nejc Prah, a Slovenian designer was Luka’s top pick. Nejc jumped at the opportunity, utilizing Luka’s jersey number 77 and the Dallas Maverick colors within the artwork.
The community was floored at the masterpiece. League teams from all over the country came to see the finished court and meet the real-life icon in person.
