Bojan breakdown? 

Post#1 » by jazzfan1971 » Mon Jul 15, 2019 2:04 am

I haven't seen much of Bojan in action. What can I expect from him, good and bad?

Hey, thanks for stopping by. I think you guys will like him. From a personal standpoint, he's just a quiet guy, very humble and will represent your organization very well. On the court, he's a scorer. If you're looking for a shutdown defender or rebounder, he's not it. He's improved all his shooting #'s this season, including become a pretty solid 3-point shooter. I don't have the advanced stats but i always view of him as a excellent player around the rim. When he drives to the rim, he usually scores. His best days as a NBA player have all come in Indiana and when Oladipo went down with his season ending injury Bojan became our go-to player on offense, and he succeeded, he had excellent #'s after Oladipo went out, so i don't think you'll find too much negative comments from Pacers fans.

Given his age, i am one who isn't too disappointed that we've moved on. I've been hoping the team would go younger and more athletic, given where we are with our core being Oladipo, Turner and Sabonis, with high hopes for Holiday. I didn't think we wouldve pulled it off, but this off-season has been something i've hoped for, so i am not sad to see Bojan go. I loved the memories and games while he played in Indianapolis and i'll be sure to watch more Jazz games then ever now and check out how hes doing.

Bojan is a scorer and a pretty damn good one at that. Here are his shooting splits from last year -> https://stats.nba.com/player/202711/shooting/

As you can see in the above, he can score from anywhere on the floor and he is usually pretty efficient too. 64% in the RA, 42.1% non-RA paint, 42.5% mid-range, 55.1% left corner 3, 44.9% right corner 3, 38.8% above the break 3. He can get to the rim and finish, he can utilize his size against smaller opponents and, of course, he is an excellent shooter. He can even masquarade as a #1 option as he had to do for us when Dipo went down. He was obviously not Dipo in this role but he got the job done.

Defensively, he can hold his own most of the time. Not a stopper but not an atrocious defender either. On the boards, he isn't very good and I don't think he should be a full-time PF.

Really good shooter at all levels. Terrible rebounder and not a real threat to force turnovers in any way. He blocked 1 shot all of last year and he doesn’t play passing lanes. Any steals come from just being in control and grabbing loose balls or poor dribbles. His on man defense is fine as his strength comes from being just quick enough to stay with 3’s and stay in front of them with his length. He can create for himself a bit, but he can’t realistically create for others; the few times he does is more via “hockey assists”, where his passes lead to other passes that create offense. He’s a classic 3, at least for us. I think you’ll like him, but maybe not in the sense of having to play him or Ingles at the 4.

Nice guy and pretty well liked. He’s not super active in the community but he’s a good guy. Very quiet and won’t be a leader in the locker room. He’ll play 82 games if you let him. I’d be fine with him on his contract, but maybe not full time as a 4?

We call him Bo-gie! He's a very good player, a scorer first, but he can play some defense. He's got a workman like attitude and doesn't whine and complain about things. You're gonna like him.

Bogdonovich is a clutch player, a killer. He is one of those guys when he misses you are shocked. He fights and is all motor. Good set up shooter, good off screens, can even take it to the basket a little. A perfect 3, not sure about moving him to the 4. Wouldn't count him out. We are really, really going to miss him.

The Pacers did not get younger by letting Bogdanovic leave. Brogdon is only about three months younger, not enough to make a difference.

Wrong Bogdanovic. Bojan is quite a few years older, as Guzman points out.

you have the wrong Bogdanovich. Brogdon is only 3 months younger than the one on the Kings, but 3 years younger than the one on the Jazz.

Clearly Indiana would have liked to Keep Bogdanovic but the money didn't work out.
