Dino Radja and Dee Brown, together again at last. The wheels for their reunion kicked into gear about a year ago, when Radja, a walking bucket with the Celtics from 1993-1997, finally joined Instagram. At 53 years old, the Naismith Hall of Famer is not IG’s target demo. “I don’t like this new social media technology,” says Radja, from his home in Zagreb, Croatia. “It makes us all more stupid. But it reconnected me with Dee, and I’m so happy for that.”
Brown spent eight years in Boston, three as a captain. He’s still sixth all-time in steals, one of two Celtics to win a dunk contest and two Browns to wear the No. 7. He’d never met a player like Dino – “He was one of my better friends when I was playing.” – so he was happy to get the message. Still, he never imagined he’d end up at a hotel in Zagreb, waiting for a ride to his old friend Dino Radja’s house. He certainly never imagined that old friend, all 6-feet-10-inches of him, would arrive in a Smart car. “He picked me up and I was like, ‘Dino, what are you doing driving around in a two-seater? This is so European.’ He was still the same guy. So humble.”
Dino Radja shared his takes on various topics stretching from the NBA to his 2018 induction in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame talking to the Croatian news website Index.hr. Plenty of strong opinions presented by the retired player, former member of the Boston Celtics. “When the comparisons between LeBron and Jordan start, I vomit,” he argued, “My son assures me that LeBron is better but for me, it’s not a discussion. If he had played twenty years ago, LeBron wouldn’t have been able to do even half of this. Today, when LeBron enters the paint, everyone moves away from him, but Jordan was getting beaten like no one and he still dominated. In front of LeBron were Kobe Bryant and some others. I respect LeBron but Kobe was better.”
Dino Radja: It is difficult to write something about Drazen that has not already been written. Yet after watching the Last Dance I have to make a comparison. I’m not going to talk about playing qualities because it doesn’t matter in this situation. Just the mind. Everything in Jordan’s head was in Drazen’s. Identical. That’s why he was what he was. A winner above all. Games were lost here and there, championships and titles, but it was the mind that did not allow surrender and that pushed forward without compromise. From him, my mind also learned a lot and copied unconsciously. Who then has an idea of ​​anything. And now to confirm only one situation that few people know. Drazen’s last match against Slovenia in Poland. Totally irrelevant because we played the qualifying finals and the first three go to the European Championships. It means a match for nothing. Nobody even needs to play. However, this was never an option for him.
