Boban Marjanovic set the highest possible expectations for the Serbian national team

Serbia has been considered the second favorite for winning the 2019 FIBA World Cup right after Team USA and Serbia’s big man Boban Marjanovic set the expectations high as well:

“Of course, the goal is Gold. If you start to practice, you put your expectations at the highest level. Doesn’t matter what you do. If you play tennis you want to win. You start reading a book, you want to finish the book, that is the goal. If you watch a movie, hey, you want to finish the movie. Same thing. If you start to practice and a lot of guys get hurt, they have some problems… Every time it gets hard to do something, you want to expect to be on the highest level and you practice because you want to be at the top”, he told Eurohoops.

Marjanovic also spoke highly of Nikola Jokic: “Nikola’s an amazing player. He’s doing a lot of different stuff, he’s a point guard in the body of a big guy. He can handle the ball, he can pass the ball, he can do everything. It’s nice to play with him and he’s my good friend too. When you have your friend next to you, it’s much easier.”
