1. Hi Dzenan, could you please introduce yourself? I was born 22nd of June 1992 in Strasbourg-France. I am 207cm tall and weigh about 96kg. I started practicing basketball with ES (Ecole des Sports- sports academy) and moved SLUC Nancy at the age of 15.
2. A few days before you became french U-20 champion. Congratulations! Are you happy with your game during this season? Thank you for your congratulations! I want to point out that the trophy is extraordinary important for us since it is the first time in the club history that the trophy comes to Nancy. I am relatively happy with my performance *Laughing*.
3. You re born in France. How did you get in touch with basketball? Yes I am born in Strasbourg and I started playing basketball at the age of 9. My parents are also very interested in basketball and so my devotion for basketball is a little bit genetic *Laughing*. My mum played basketball and my younger sister Zerina (14 years old) became also French champion two weeks ago!
4. You attend a sports academy. Could you please briefly describe the concept and the role of the french basketball association? How would you describe the level of French U- 20 championship? Yes I attend a sports academy combining both academic and athletic formation. The structure of the class is very favourable. We are only 17 players of different ages. Everyone of us has got his own room, we have a special practice hall, fitness and weight room, class rooms. We have our own doctors and physiotherapeutic treatment in the school thus providing us excellent conditions for the development of our athletic profiles. The competition is organized on country level that means every team in the PRO A has to run an own center for the education of young prospects. Our games are played before the games of the PRO A teams.
5. How did you get noticed by KSBIH and did they know you before? The first contact has been established thanks to Nedzad Kladusak. They didn t know me before.
6. Will you play for BIH this summer and how strong are your ties to BIH? I have been invited for the preparations now in June and I accepted the invitation. I am closely tied to BIH since it is the country where my parents come from and I spend every summer in BIH since all my family lives there.
7. The french PRO A is probably the league that resembles most to NBA in basketball style and athleticity. Which assets do you have and which points have to be improved? My qualities are a very good threepoint-shot for a player of my height, I am very active around the paint and I am one of the best Free-throw-shooters in the French U-20 League.. I think that I have the most upside in my defensive game.
8. You are a PF. Do you feel more comfortable back to basket, close to paint of facing up your defender on high post? I am pretty flexible so I can adapt to every role I have on the PF-position.
9. Have you ever been contacted by French basketball association? Indeed their have been some contacts and chances to play for France are have been very high but I listened to my heart before I decided and I decided to play for BIH.
10. Are you following BIH basketball and do you know some of your teammates in the U20? What do you expect to achieve with the team? I don t know anyone of the U20 players. I hope they have the same ambition s I have- The promotion to A-division!
11. Have you ever attended a match of the BIH NT. Do you know some players like Damir Krupalija? I have watched several games of the NT. I know Damir Krupalija personally and we meet everytime I play in Toulon or when he comes to Nancy.
12. Many young players complain of the poor practice conditions (poor coaching staff, lacking gym capacities) and decide to leave BIH in order to play for other countries like Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia. What do you think about that? Honestly I don t know the Bosnian training conditions and I think these are personal decisions of every player.
13. Who are your basketball heroes and which are your personal career aims? My personal basketball hero is of course a former Yugo-player, Toni Kukoc! My personal aim is to graduate. Concerning the senior team of SLUC Nancy, I signed two days ago an one-year so called Stagiaire- (Associate)- contract. It means that beginning from september I will practice with the professional team of Nancy.
