Zeljko Obradovic admits that change is inevitable and also that sometimes it’s great to be surprised as he discusses in the latest Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Coaches Corner.

As he explained: “Everything has probably been discovered in basketball, but the sport is so rich that so much can change at any given moment. I think basketball is a sport where the coach can have the most influence on the outcome of the game. No matter how much you prepare for any opponent, you still have to be ready to react during the game and that’s what makes basketball a special sport.

I do like to give my players freedom, and I actually love the most when a player takes initiative. I am the happiest when my player surprises me with it during the game. Because, I mostly try to anticipate certain situations that can happen in the game, but when a player does something to surprise me, I am the happiest man in the world”.
