Goran Dragic
Goran Dragic

BIO: There is with no doubt a great wait for the “greens” due especially to the rising star of the world basketball Luka Doncic, but the “golden boy” is not the only merengue participating due to the last minute naturalisation of Anthony Randolph which increase the expectations of the Slovenian team, which count also on the Miami Heat star Goran Dragic. Around them, the ex-coach of Georgia Kokoskov has many reliable players as Prepelic, Blazic and, in the frontcourt, the new NBA player Zagorac and the curious call of Erazek Lorbek, who is far from the top-basketball since 2014 and could come back in Helsinki emulating Carlos Delfino in Rio de Janeiro. Get the qualification to Istanbul is achievable, then the talent does not lack, to try to do an upset and struggle for the main positions

QUALIFIED: with 6 vins in 6 games the slovenians have easily won the qualifying round of last summer

EYES ON: Goran Dragic; the future can wait, without offending the “golden boy”, but (maybe for the ultimate time) is clear that the Slovenians’ fate are mainly in the hands of the Miami Heat player. He comes back to play EuroBasket, five times in his career, after having missed the latest edition; leadership, points and assists with the strong desire to win a medal. Pay close attention to the “greens”: his star has a mission

CALENDAR: in Helsinki: 31/08 vs Poland – 02/09 vs Finland – 03/09 vs Greece – 05/09 vs Iceland – 06/09 vs France
