Interview with Dusko Bunic, one of the newcomers in Buducnost Podgorica and former player of Vojvodina Novi Sad and Serbia University National Team - Jul 27, 2012

Dusko Bunic
Dusko Bunic (207-C-89, agency: Beo Basket) is along with Pavlin Ivanov (195-G-93, agency: Beo Basket) and Jordan Taylor (185-PG-89), one of the new faces in Buducnost Podgorica. Eurobasket.com took the opportunity to interview him and ask him about his expectations a couple of days before the start of preparations for the new season with his new club.

Hello Dusko, could you introduce yourself to theEurobasket.com readers and tell them more about the beginnings of your career? When did you start playing basketball and who was your first coach?

Hello, I started my career when I was 13 years old at Spartak Subotica and my first coach was Blagoje Ivic .

From 2007 until last season, you played for KK Novi Sad Panonska Banka and was one of the best players of the team which provided you a U20 National Team invitation. How important for you was to get a chance at the early stage of your career at the highest level in Serbia?

Of course it meant a lot to me to get that chance. I took advantage of it and deservedly got the call for U20 National Team of Serbia.

Last summer you probably achieved the greatest success in your career so far in the summer Universiade in China. Serbian National Team led by Mladen Jeremic (196-G-88, agency: Interperformances), Vladimir Lucic (202-F-89, agency: Beo Basket), Vladimir Stimac (208-C-87, agency: Interperformances), etc won the gold medal. You were also a part of this team. What kind of memories link you to this tournament?

Representing your country at the international level and winning gold medal is an incredible feeling. it was a huge success and I am very proud on it. I was honored to be a part of that team.

Before the start of last season there was a fusion of teams Novi Sad and Vojvodina, and KK Vojvodina Novi Sad was formed. You decided to stay in the same area and did not regret-your team reached the championship semi-finals where the giant Partizan Belgrade stopped you. How much satisfied are you with last season and do you feel that you progressed as a player?

The last season was a turning point in my career. We had a great team, led by a great coaching staff and when everything is at the right place at the right time to success is inevitable. Of course, from every good collective good individuals step up. Playing against teams like Partizan, Red Star, Radnicki is an invaluable experience that helped me mature as a player.

After the end of last season you signed a contract with Buducnost. Was there any specific reason to choose Buducnost?

I think that was the right move for me. I'm a young player, willing to work hard and still have room for improvement. Buducnost is a well organized club with tradition. They play in two very important competitions and it will be a big challenge for me.

Did you follow Dejan Radonjic (agency: Beo Basket )'s team last season and what is your opinion about them?

I followed as much as I could.. Dejan Radonjic (agency: Beo Basket ) is known as a hard worker and his willingness to compete at the highest level is crucial for good results of Buducnost.
Do you know personally some of your future teammates?

So far I have not had the opportunity to cooperate with the players and coaching staff, but I know well Nemanja Milosevic (204-F/C-87, agency: Interperformances, college: W.Kentucky).

When do you arrive in Podgorica and what do you expect from your first season abroad?

I will be there on August 4. All I want in my first season abroad is to fit well in the team and contribute.

Buducnost n the next season will play in the Adriatic League, Eurocup, Montenegrin league and Montenegrin cup. Two centers Bojan Dubljevic and Hasan Rizvic have already left the team. Do you feel it as motivation to prove yourself in front of traditionally demanding fans from Podgorica, or you consider it as a burden?

It motivates me, of course. It is known that fans can be your sixth man on the floor, thus players are obligated to play to their maximum all the time. It will be my honor to defend the colors of Buducnost Podgorica.

Thank you for the interview Dusko. Eurobasket.com wishes you a lot of luck in your new club.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity. Best regards.

Erste Basketball League Play offs: The classic between Buducnost and Mornar in the finals - 3 days ago
As expected we will again see the classic between Buducnost and Mornar in the finals. The two strongest teams in Montenegro will fight for the championship and a very interesting series is ahead of us. However, the two big rivals did not have an easy task. Buducnost won in Cetinje 64-60 but the game was very tied and Lovcen had +13 lead at halftime. In the second half Buducnost finally woke up but Lovcen stayed close and the game could have gone either way. Former Lovcen's talent Petar Po...   [read more]
