I spoke to former Los Angeles Laker and two-time NBA champion Sasha Vujačić last Thursday in Oakland, Ca when his New York Knicks took on the Golden State Warriors. Vujačić represents Slovenia as he was born in Maribor to a Slovenian mother and a father from Montenegro. He spoke about the gap in basketball between the American players and the rest of the world as well as his relationship to the current Croatian players in the NBA.
When talking about players from the former Yugoslavia, whether it be Croatia, Bosnia, Slovenia or Serbia, Vujačić said “there are no borders in sports.”
CroatianSports.com nation, do you agree with that statement?
