From the panel of the post-game presser, the experienced forward referred to his national team’s failure to qualify for the big event by using strong language. “If I don’t say it’s a big shame the way we lost the game, I will lie to you. I wasn’t ready to play today. I don’t think that’s important,” Bjelica uttered at the beginning. “We played like shit, and the better team won tonight. With this attitude, we can’t play basketball. I don’t want to talk about pressure, but if you’re not 100 percent here, you cannot win. I can apologize to our people. Our attitude has to change. I’m happy to be part of this team. In five years, we’ll be gone. Talent can’t win you games in this type of tournament. I will take responsibility as a player,” the 33-year-old added.

Nemanja Bjelica to play with Serbia

The availability of the NBA stars to their respective national teams has always been rather questionable and that is especially the case when the team goes deep into the playoffs or the player doesn’t have his contract status taken care of. Nemanja Bjelica will be in a peculiar situation this summer as his obligations towards the Miami Heat ended after the team got swept by the Milwaukee Bucks in the first round of the playoffs. According to Mozzart Sport, however, the Serbian star will travel to Belgrade soon and will without a doubt make himself available to coach Igor Kokoskov for the summer and the Olympic qualifiers.
