I used to live near LA and remember going to Clippers games and seeing people in Clippers jerseys take out their Lakers phone cases at the metal detectors. This was the Lob City era. So some of those fans are fairweather front runners themselves, so that is probably his they justify rooting for them. Similarly, I still have friends in the area who seem to switch allegiances based on who is doing better.

Bojan's a Bosnian Croat. Or even more specifically, Herzegovinian Croat.

I know American NBA players love to talk about how tough they are based on some "ghetto" they grew up in. This is Bojan's hometown around the time he was 7.

I'm going to be honest -- Marcus Morris, Pat Beverly, Reggie Jackson and what's left of Demarcus Cousins are a pretty volatile and unlikable bunch. And Rondo hasn't even played yet.

doesn't make American players any less tough

You ever hear that story about the little orphan boy abandoned in Eastern Europe who grew up on the streets raised by feral dogs until he became the alpha of the pack and led his posse of feral dogs butt naked and barking on all fours? They'd storm into butcher shops and burger kings just like Bonnie and Clyde until the police ran a sting where they locked the whole pack inside of seafood shop. The dogs all went to the pound. The boy, the alpha? He grew up to become NBA star Bojan Bogdanovich.*


is it true? Bojan always comes across to me a gentleman, did not know he had such a rough beginning..

Lol, no.

He's a bad dude though. He's gotten a lot better defensively over the years.

Edit: oh, also the feral child stuff is sort of true from memory. There was a Russian boy named Ivan who was abandoned and lived for several years with feral dogs. There's a novel about him called Dog Boy, a spooky film called Lek and the Dogs, and a play too. It just doesn't have anything to do with Bogi. That kid joined the military I think

Playoff career average up to 28.5 now. Lebron is at 28.7. I can see Mitchell in 2nd just behind MJ at end of this playoffs. Iverson is 2nd with 29.7.

I remember in Chechnya a player had dodged the helicopters to make it close to the reactor where his horse.

Sadly the helicopters got shot into reactor! The meltdown took away all of horse’s hair. Now man and naked horse ride from Chechnya in pursuit of basketball career.

This is story of Bogdan Bogmadeup

Yeah, since years back, when he couldn't guard CP3 in his first playoff series and the Jazz went small. He may have improved slightly

Because Gobert FTs are better than a turnover for failing to inbound. Neither team had a timeout left.

Mitchell says he is ok

Hope he is actually good, but you always feel the ankle the next day or 2 I think
