Everyone, include Vucevic himself, knows that he has yet to show his best at a FIBA EuroBasket. He’s ready for that to change later this year, when Montenegro face the Pau Gasol-led Spain, Hungary, Romania, Croatia and the Czech Republic in Group C. “I’m excited about it,” he said to FIBA.com. “I want to help the national team have a great campaign. On a personal level, I have great expectations, too. In 2011, I was so young and I was there mostly to gain experience at senior level.
“This summer I want to compete at my best level and I am going to have a great opportunity to have nice match-ups against guys like the Gasol brothers, the big men from Croatia and Jan Vesely (Czech Republic) for example. That is going to be fun and very competitive, I am looking forward to it.” Montenegro, much like Vucevic, have not shown their best level at the two EuroBaskets they have played in. Vucevic believes that can change this year.
