“The Last Dance” Documentary Brings Back Memories for Hibbing’s Joel McDonald
McDonald ran into three-time NBA champion Toni Kukoc back in 2009 during a trip in Croatia.
HIBBING, Minn. – This past weekend, “The Last Dance” documentary aired episodes five and six, which included a look into how Croatian basketball legend Toni Kukoc became part of the Chicago Bulls. And that brought back memories for a local basketball coach.
Back in 2006, Hibbing boys basketball coach Joel McDonald was in Croatia and he briefly ran into Kukoc in his hometown, but wasn’t able to get a picture with him. Three years later, McDonald is with his kids in the same town and he once again sees the three time NBA champion.
McDonald would tweet out a picture of that meeting in response to his son Ayden’s tweet saying ‘Toni!”.
