Minnesota Lynx Shame Luka Doncic for Not Supporting WNBA After He Shouts Out Wings' Arike Ogunbowale

With the WNBA Playoffs underway, things are heating up in more ways than one.

Before being eliminated from the playoffs by the Seattle Storm, the Minnesota Lynx jumped on Twitter to accuse Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic of not being a "real" supporter of Dallas Wings star Arike Ogunbowale and the WNBA.

Yikes.

The Lynx -- who are known to troll -- seem a little salty in their dogged support of their own Napheesa Collier, whom the Associated Press named as this season's WNBA Rookie of the Year. But the Wings responded to the Lynx on Twitter in support of Doncic's message to Ogunbowale.

While Doncic isn't publicly known as a WNBA superfan quite yet, it doesn't mean he doesn't support the league or the hometown Wings. Sure, guys like Minnesota Timberwolves guard Josh Okogie have physically put on the jersey and been seen with some frequency at Lynx games, but support is support.

Ogunbowale has made a strong case of her own for Rookie of the Year campaign, putting up 19.1 points per game this season. Doncic is in her corner, but he'll have to wait until next season to support the Wings in person given that they, like the Mavericks, missed out on postseason ball.
