CroatianSports.com visited Los Angeles Lakers’ Ivica Zubac for his birthday as he turned 21 years old on March 18th. The 7′ 1″ center from Čitluk, Herzegovina is a huge Real Madrid and Luka Modrić fan and said he will be planning a trip to Russia when the NBA season ends to watch Croatia at the World Cup. He thinks the Vatreni can make the semifinals. He also spoke about his NCAA bracket and the departure of good friend Larry Nancy Jr., who was traded to the Cavs a month ago.
Zubac grilled me for wanting to do the interview in English so I let fate be decided by a game of “rock-paper-scissors”. He won.
