    Coming off screens taking contested shots at the top of the key, possibly falling down trying to generate the whistle?

    Good thing about Bogdan is that despite struggling from outside shooting (1/9 3pt) he still somehow had a good game. Had some nice assists (especially in the first half), he made some big baskets in the 4th quarter (1 three, 2 or 3 nice layups and some free throws) and played good defense on Bellineli (Marco had his worst game in the tournament) overrall.

    Stats: 22 points (8/18 FG), 6 rebounds, 4 assists, 1 steal, 1 TO for 32 minutes.

    Serbia will play against Russia in the semifinals. We need him on fire in that game :D

    Serbia vs Russia should be a great game! I would like to see if Bogdan outplays Shved in this big game.
    Actually, I am surprised by Shved. He has been fairly impressive. It is strange that he did not make it in NBA.

    Odd game for Bogdan. Made nearly all of his 2's and missed nearly all of his 3's.

    I know, it's not the right thread, but... Doncic almost got a triple double against Spain.

    Really impressed by Bogdan. Leads his team to the Euro Finals "Leader of the Horde" has to be the best nickname I've heard in a while. It's really down to Bogdan or Dragic for who wins the MVP of the tourney.

    Nice win over Russia. Getting pretty excited to see Bogdan this year!!

    Bogdan sure has been a busy player, seems as if he is been playing non stop. It will be interesting to see how he handles a 82 game season.

    He's going to have like 2 days off then right into camp. Hope he knows what he's getting himself into.

    I think it's fair to say that he'll be in shape. A bit tired perhaps, but ready to rock and roll.

    On the bright side, all this international experience he has gone through over the years can only do wonders for his game and for his team as well.

    He will be fine. Still young.

    Any highlights

    He's averaging 19-5 I want my SG to be as versatile as he is and he won't be a negative on defense.

    He is used to euro league schedules, I guess he is fine.

    Serbia vs. Slovenia in the final of a Eurobasket, damn. Makes me wish we could see a Yugoslavian team today.

    Also getting more excited about Bogdan...starting to see a picture where Vlade fleeced Phoenix in getting Bogdan and the lower picks for Chriss.

    Can't wait to see Bogdan in an NBA game.

    Skal and Chris's might end up being the same type of player idvtake Skal cause of a higher IQ and team play. Now add in Bogdan even if he's just a 6th man Vlade tool Phoenix to the wood shed.

    So we're seeing Bogdan vs Donic a year before we see them play together I am giddy.

    Slavic basketball school still the best in the world.
    Serbia has lost 8 of the best 12 players who won two silver medals in a row, losing just against USA in the final, and still have the chance to win Eurobasket. We are talking about a 7 milion citizen country, smaller than NY city. That's crazy.
    I'm going to support Serbia just because they didn't give a fake passport to an American player as Slovenia did with Randolph.

    Nothing has impressed me more about Bogdan than the fact that he's almost single-handedly pushed this group of the few remaining healthy players on the Serbian roster all the way to the Euroleague championships. I mean, aside from Boban, the only guy on the current roster who's seen NBA time is Ognjen Kuzmic and he most just spent time sitting around on the Warriors' bench or in D-League.

    While his numbers haven't been as gaudy as Slovenia's stars, Bogdan deserves to be this tourney's MVP. Also, he's freaking clutch as hell.

    Bogdan vs. Doncic!!! It will be a great game to tune into. I wonder if Bogdan guards Dragic or Doncic. It'll give us a good idea about how his defense will translate

    Bogdan is a good, but not great 3pt shooter. I see him becoming a 33-36% 3pt shooter in his rookie year.

    He's really more of a scorer than a shooter, if that makes any sense. Like Kobe, he can make almost any shot but he won't at the rate of a shooter. (I'd like everyone to please note that I am by no means saying Bogdan is the next Kobe or anything dumb like that)

    Stefan Jovic, staring PG for Serbia, was injured yesterday against Russia. They say he will play (like Willis Reed with one leg if he needs too), but he injured his ankle and he couldn't walk after, so im not optimistic about him playing at all. And Jovic is great passer and defender, very important for Serbia. In that case our chances are lower, and that also means Bogdan will play point guard a lot. Facing Dragic and Doncic at backcourt, probably guarding Dragic. So if we want to be competitive tommorrow in the finals, Bogdan will really need to step up in all aspects - with defense, dictating tempo, creating for his teammates and himself, shooting, ...

    I think he has to guard Doncic or Dragic

    This could be a great running start for Bogdan heading into the season. Just stay healthy in this last game Bogdan!
