NBA superstar Luka Doncic has reached Top 500 in Overwatch 2, earning the label of one of the best players in the world, all while in Championship contention with the Dallas Mavericks. 

It can be surreal at times to realize that superstar athletes are often regular gamers like the rest of us, some of whom you could very well be queuing with without knowing. But how about being at the top of their sport while also being at the top of a video game too?

Luka Doncic is a big Overwatch fan, once running into a streamer in a Grand Master lobby, and instantly recognizing them, proving his interest in the game.

Now, he’s achieved something only the very best players can boast – reaching a top 500 rank.

Shared on his Instagram story on May 8, Doncic posted a picture of his Top 500 Tank rank right after a win; quite the feat for someone busy preparing for a playoff match. 

We don’t know what Doncic’s rank is exactly, but from a tiny sliver on the left side of the image, we can see a small portion of the Grand Master emblem.

The basketball phenom actually reached Top 500 while playing on a laptop too – not the best setup for the most competitive ranks.

Doncic has been spotted Grand Master lobbies since last year, so it may not be his first time in the top 500 either. What we know for sure, though, is he’s better at both Overwatch 2 and basketball than all of us.
