After some background on geography and recent history, Saric showed a video of the 1990 Dinamo-Red Star riot in Belgrade, where fans of the Serbian and Croatian national soccer teams clashed a year prior to the armed conflict that killed approximately 140,000 and displaced 4 million people. To illustrate the human element of the conflict in more relatable terms, Saric then chronicled the bitterness that emerged on the Yugoslavian national team during the ensuing decade. “Dario’s [talk] was the most impactful,” Covington says. “He spoke about everything that went on. You could tell it was a tad bit sensitive for him.”

But at least one Sixers player still seemed upset about it after their practice Wednesday in Miami. “It definitely matters because you can just dribble it out, everything,” Philadelphia forward Robert Covington said. “But you know, we don’t understand why he did it. But overall, we just said, OK, that gives us anticipation because obviously he didn’t care about the simple fact of the score of the game. They were already winning.”
It’s sharing a laugh, making jokes and genuinely enjoying each other’s company that makes Covington fond of his Sixer teammates, which probably made accepting a four-year, $62 million extension in November a little easier. “It’s been a great season so far,” said Covington, seated at his locker. “We’re winning and we’re doing better than what we’ve done in previous years. So, the season’s going great. Collectively, we’re having a great time. Me and my teammates are enjoying what we’re doing and the chemistry on this team is coming together and it’s starting to show out there.”
