Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic and his longtime girlfriend, Anamaria Goltes, got engaged this week.

This week, Goltes took to social media to share their pair’s wild photos celebrating the happy occasion. They featured both a romantic boat party on the sea and what appeared to be a lovely date on land.
This obviously isn’t the first time Doncic and Goltes have landed in the headlines. Between their intimate photos together and racy public displays of affection, the pair has been a permanent fixture in the news cycle over the years.
That’s how popular the couple is among hoops fans.
Romance aside, this is shaping up to be a massive year for Doncic. Two seasons ago he guided the Mavs to a Western Conference Finals appearance and seemed to have the wind at his back.
An eventual NBA championship felt almost inevitable.
Then last season he and the Mavs regressed massively. Not only did they fail to make the playoffs altogether, but they also committed to a roster that has serious defensive deficiencies and very questionable core personalities.

If anyone can overcome all that it’s definitely Doncic – but the battle feels like an uphill one.
With his personal life in a great place, it will be interesting to see if Doncic get his professional life similarly secured in 2023-24.
Regardless of whether the Mavs win or lose next year, though – Goltes will have Doncic’s back every step of the way.
