ALL-TIME EX-YUGOSLAVIA ALL NBA TEAM! Former Yugoslavia has produced many NBA stars and it successor states of Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia, Montenegro, Macedonia and Kosovo havent been as successful as the original. Its players are still in high demand, however and we look back at the best all time players in the NBA from the former Yugoslavia. Many of these players had mixed upbringings from mixed marriages, Serbs born in Croatia, Croats born in Bosnia and everything in between. One thing that cant be taken away is the strong basketball tradition, the training and they style of play that defines Yugoslav basketball. STARTING FIVE PG) Goran Dragic: Europes not known for producing high level NBA point guards but that maybe a bit misguided. Many were never given the opportunities including Bosnain Zoran Planinic who had a solid NBA career coming off the bench and Aleksandar Djordjevic who was one of the best former YU players of all time. SG) Drazen Petrovic: Drazen is one of the best pure shooters of all time. He wasnt given a chance early in his NBA career but was coming into his own when he tragically died early. C) Vlade Divac: Vlade was one of the best passing big men of all time and a very solid player for many years in the NBA playing on some very good teams. SF) Peja Stojakovic: One of the best shooters of his generation Peja could light it up from anywhere on the court. PF) Dino Radja: Dino was a dominating post player who had a very solid start to his NBA career until injuries derailed his NBA dreams. BENCH G) Predrag Danilovic: Sasa was very good in his short NBA career, he had weak ankles and the grind of the NBA season proved too much for him. He averaged 16.6ppg in his last stop in the NBA with the Mavericks at the age of 27. G) Beno Udrih: Beno has never been a star but has been a solid contributor to NBA teams for almost 10 years. G) Marko Jaric: Marko had a long but unspectacular career as an NBA professional. His claims to fame these days are being married to super model Adrianna Lima. C) Nikola Pekovic: Nikola has been a beast in the NBA; he has great moves around the basket and great size and strength. It was a tough decision between putting him or Nikola Vucevic on the team. F) Toni Kukoc: One of the few players in NBA history who could legitimately play all five positions on the court. Toni was one of the best 6th men of all time in the NBA and could create nightmarish mismatches on the court for opponents. F) Bostjan Nachbar: Bostjan had a very solid NBA career and could have continued to do so but he opted for a big money, big time return to European basketball instead. F) Mirza Teletovic: Mirza has just started out on his NBA adventure and it hasnt been the best beginnings, but he is expected to be a solid NBA player for a very long time.
