“There are certain things you just have to go through,” Rudež said. “You have to go through somebody kicking your ass out there, scoring 10 points in two minutes. Guys in this league will do that to you. There’s nothing easy about defense in this league. Every night you have to be ready. The (last) players on the roster can come in and get hot and score in bunches.” He only has to be average on defense, though. The harder part will be being nearly perfect on offense. But he expects that to continue. For seasons to come. “I most definitely feel I belong in the NBA,” he said. “There’s no doubt in my mind about it.”
When were you first approached about the possibility of signing with Indiana? Damjan Rudez: Well, my agent called me last May and told me there were several teams that wanted me to play for them in the summer leagues, but at the end we agreed to go to the States for a couple of workouts and it turned out great. Which other team or teams were interested? Damjan Rudez: I went for Cleveland for three days and I was there working out and then I went to Indiana. After that, I just waited for the situation to develop.
