While Dragic’s confidence wavered, Nash, Grant Hill and assistant coaches kept him afloat as he doubted his decision to come to the U.S. “[Kokoskov] was my second father. When I came to the States, he speaks the same language as I do. He was there for me 24/7,” Dragic said. “I owe them a lot that I even succeed in the NBA because of him and Dan Majerle and those guys. “Igor was the main guy. He always talked to me. He always opened my eyes and my head. I always remember him saying, ‘Just put hard work in and be patient.’ He was always saying patience. At that time, I didn’t understand that well and now I really do, I really do. Even now I don’t see him as a coach. I see him as my friend.”

The complete list of 179 eligible candidates was announced Thursday. The other NBA players eligible for the first time are: Ray Allen, a 10-time All-Star who won titles with the 2007-08 Boston Celtics and the 2012-13 Miami Heat and made the most 3-pointers in NBA history (2,973); Grant Hill, a seven-time All-Star and co-Rookie of the Year (along with Kidd) in 1994-95 who overcame a career-threatening ankle injury to play 18 seasons; Chauncey Billups, a seven-time All-Star who earned the nickname “Mr. Big Shot” and played a key role on the Detroit Pistons’ 2003-04 championship team; Richard “Rip” Hamilton, who co-starred with Billups on the Pistons’ last title team and was selected to three All-Star teams. “I’m humbled and honored to be nominated,” Billups told ESPN’s The Jump. “… I played really hard my entire career and left it on the floor.”
