Do you think Nikola Mirotic, Nikola Pekovic and yourself will ever play together for Montenegro? NV: I hope so, I don’t know what the future holds. I can’t answer that question for everybody… Nikola Pekovic has played for our team before, so I’m sure he wants to play although he had some issues with injuries. With Mirotic, the thing that happens is he played for Spain in the junior teams… So we will see. But I hope we can put things together and be a very good team.
Clippers head coach Doc Rivers called you the best player nobody in the NBA knows. How do you feel about that description? NV: It’s great to hear that from one of the great coaches in the NBA. At the same time, the things that people say about me… I’ve never worried about it. I’m not concerned about becoming famous and everybody knowing me. I just have to take my time and get better and better and whatever happens is going to be a byproduct of that. I don’t worry about people knowing me.
What are your thoughts on the hiring of Scott Skiles as head coach? Nikola Vucevic: I don’t know him. He’s coached very good teams in the past and very good players for what I understand. He played for the Magic and he knows the game, I’m sure. I don’t know much about him, but I’m looking forward to meeting him and working with him. I think he’ll be good for us and can help us take the next step. He has a reputation as a very demanding coach, which is kind of the stereotype of the coaches from the former Yugoslavia. So I guess it’s going to be pretty familiar to you. NV: I don’t know. I mean, I’ve read reports about that and, well, I think that’s good with a young team. I guess he’ll want us to prove ourselves every day, to be at our best every day and become a better team. I’ve dealt with many coaches here and in college and everywhere and you can learn a lot from every coach.
