Zizic spoke to Spanish newspaper “As” about the present, his future and also the past of Croatian basketball, Drazen Petrovic.

As Zizic admitted: “Petrovic is the biggest name in the history of Croatian basketball. He had an incredible career both in Europe and the NBA. There will be no one like him in the next 200 years. Players like Drazen come out only once in a lifetime”.

Zizic spoke also about the life in Istanbul and David Blatt: “I feel safe in Istanbul. Although with so many travels, when I am there I only go to practices. I do not have much free time, but I like Istanbul. It’s huge and beautiful city. Blatt is one of the best coaches of Europe. I am young, so I can learn a lot from him and prepare myself well for the NBA. He is the main reason I signed for the Darussafaka. We talk a lot. I can approach him at any time and he responds without any problem”.

Zizic does not hide that he expects to sign with the Celtics who have his NBA rights this summer: “When I get to Boston, I will bring all my energy: I will go for every rebound, I will defend to the maximum, I will do everything that the coach asks for. It remains to be seen whay they expect of me, but I can promise that at all times I will give 100%. I follow them. They are a very young team which is playing very well. Especially Isaiah Thomas, one of the best players in the NBA today. I will share the same jersey with him next season”.
