Dallas Mavericks superstar Luka Dončić just had one of the best on-court performances in NBA history. But his post-game quote was just as good.
Dončić, who led the Mavericks to an improbable comeback victory for an overtime win over the New York Knicks, finished the game with a career-high 60 points and a career-high 21 rebounds. He also added 10 assists, which gave him the first-ever 60-point, 20-rebound triple-double in NBA history.
After destroying double teams against the Lakers on Christmas Day, he was even more impressive against New York. But for many fans, the best moment of the night happened right after the game was over.
Dončić was asked about his performance, and he seemed surprised by his own accomplishments. He then explained that he was ‘tired as hell’ and that he needed a ‘recovery beer’ following the win.

It is fully understandable why he didn’t just go home and play chess on his phone without at least a little bit of celebrating such a historic game.
