“Luka a ho” — Rapper Lil Wayne disses the Dallas Mavericks superstar for flopping

As Chris Paul's fan and friend, we're not sure Lil Wayne has a lot of wiggle room to call others out on flopping.

Lil Wayne and Luka Doncic

Between all the thrilling series of games and developing rivalries in the 2022 Playoffs, there has been an onslaught of complaints about the refereeing in the past few weeks. The Dallas Mavericks and Pheonix Suns semifinals series has been no different.

In fact, even well-known celebrity, specifically rapper and song artist Lil Wayne, isn't happy that he resorted to calling out Dallas Mavericks superstar Luka Doncic for his flopping antics.

A series full of flops

Although some may find the wording of his tweet over the line, Lil Wayne has the right to be mad about all the unnecessary flopping ongoing in this series. It's gotten to the point where even the players have acknowledged the constant bickering and baiting for foul calls throughout the series.

Lil Wayne's complaint, in particular, happened after Doncic and Paul fought for a rebound where the latter jumped behind the Mavs superstar and inadvertently hit him on the body by accident, which was deemed an automatic over-the-back foul.

Wayne, a long-time friend, and supporter of CP3, probably felt that Doncic manipulated the call after jumping right in front of Paul's body to bait him into a foul.

The Battle between Point God and Luka Magic

If there's one thing we know about Doncic after the past four games, he isn't afraid of Paul or anyone for that matter. Not only has the Slovenian native been arguably the best player in the series so far, but he's outplayed Paul in the past two games.

After Doncic's 26-point performance on Sunday, he became the first player in NBA Playoff history with 650+ points, 150+ rebounds, and 150+ assists through their first 20 Playoff games. He's also finally receiving contributions from his fellow teammates Jalen Brunson and Dorian Finney-Smith, who combined for 42 points on Sunday.

So to go back to Lil Wayne's tweet, we're not sure what was very "ho" about Doncic's outstanding performance. If anything, he might want to observe how Paul plays as well because the Point God has notoriously been known for foul baiting throughout his career.

CP3 was spectacular in Game 2, where he had 28 points, 8 assists, 6 rebounds, and put on a masterclass to finish the game. Doncic answered with his masterpiece, scoring a combined 52 points in Games 3 and 4.

As the series shifts back to the Valley, the spotlight will be on both point guards as they will their teams and flop their way to victory.
