Dealing with fans isn’t always an easy job. Bogdan Bogdanovic, one of Europe’s most avid scorers in recent years has lived the “full experience” in the Old Continent, so when the Atlanta Hawks stunned the Philadelphia crowd in the conference semifinals, he was “prepared” for a mild reaction.

After all, he’s played in front of the most demanding crowds in EuroLeague, including Panathinaikos‘ passionate fans, as he recalled in the post-game interview following the Hawks‘ sole win in the series so far (Philadelphia currently leads 2-1).

“In the NBA you’re not getting hit by coins or lighters when you shoot free throws, they are not going to put the lasers in your eyes. Like in Panathinaikos‘ (arena), I remember this, the green laser. It’s super tough to shoot like that! Now I know, I don’t have (to deal with this). It’s all about confidence, it’s mental”, explained the Hawks star.
