Interview with Samir Saptahovic, former player of Primorka and a star player in Kosovo - Mar 8, 2013

Do you remember Samir Shaptahovic (174-PG-81)? A lighting fast sharp shooter that played for Primorka in YUBA league and always fought hard on the court? Well, Samir Shaptahovic has been playing for over 10 ten years in Kosovo and helping one of the youngest basketball nations in Europe to make steps forward and try to join the rest of FIBA basketball community. did an interview with Samir and asked him about his past in Montenegro but also about his plans for the future.

Hi Samir, do you remember the day when you started playing basketball and is basketball the first sport that you loved?

I have began practicing basketball at the age of 9 in youth teams of Mornar. My first coach was Predrag Vujacic, and then I played in the cadet and junior teams of Mornar, and Vujacic followed me in all these youth categories. We won everything that was on the table in Montenegro. Of course that basketball was my first love and I have loved it since I was a child. My role model back than was Ranko Carapic (185-G-70, agency: Beo Basket), a great point guard.

You were a member of a very talented generation of Primorka, which was an example of how to work with young players. You succeeded in a short time to transform an anonymous club to a YUBA league member where you played in the season 2001/2002 and had excellent statistics (9.0ppg, 1.9rpg, 17ast, 1.8spg). What kind of memories do you have about Primorka and what was the secret of your success?

My generation was among most successful teams at the time- Slobodan Tosic (195-G-80, agency: BeoExcell), Mladen Sekularac (203-G/F-81), Petar Mijovic and others. Soon we all joined the first team of Mornar. For our efforts and work at that time was credited Dragan Bozinov. When I moved to the first team of Mornar, I was still a junior player, and Mihailo Pavicevic gave me a chance. Thats when my career started moving forward. After the fusion between the clubs from Bar (Mornar and Primorka) I joined Primorka. We started from the First Montenegrin league and in 3 seasons came to Yuba League which was a dream come true for every player. Our coach at that time was Milan Rondovic (agency: BBEH Cokrlija ). In YUBA league I had a very difficult competition, because my position was covered by two established names such as Radovan Pesic (186-G-72, agency: Beo Basket) and Gavrilo Pajovic (187-G-71). I've earned my minutes due to my hard work and effort. Primorka name is still in my heart and I remmember all the players and coaches that were a part of that project.

After an excellent season in Primorka how did you decide to move to MEB Prishtina, a team from the newly formed League of Kosovo?

I have moved to MEB Pristina, because I felt at that moment it was time to make a career out of Montenegro. My club Primorka received 30 000 euro as a transfer fee for my move to Pristina, and then definitely began my career ..

In those years Kosovo basketball was in great expansion. Clubs from Kosovo brought big names such as Acie Earl (208-F/C-70, college: Iowa), Jimmal Ball (179-PG-78, agency: ACMT, college: Akron), Goran Kalamiza (189-G-74) etc.. How you got used to the Kosovo league and how the transition influenced on you as a player?

At the time I arrived here basketball in Kosovo was in a large expansion and was accompanied by a very good media coverage and of course financially. Many former NBA players came, big names from Croatia and across Europe of course, and there were a lot of quality coaches from all over the world, and I learned a lot from all of them, especially from Bujar Ljoci from Kosovo Ekrem Menum from Turkey and Rudolf Jugo from Croatia.

In your first season in Kosovo you won the National Championship. In the meantime, you have built up your name in the Top Division in Kosovo and became a symbol of the League. How did Samir Shaptahovic change as a player in the last ten years?

With Pristina I won everything I was offered, from the Cup titles to the national championships. Of course in the last 10 years primarily I was formed as a man, then as a true basketball player who gained the right experience at point guard position.

How good is the current level of Kosovo League and what is the future of Kosovo basketball?

I sincerely hope that very soon Kosovo basketball will join Europe because these people and this country deserve it ..

Peja, your club, is currently first in the league of Kosovo, led by you and Dardan Berisha (193-SG-88, agency: INVICTUS Sports Group) and coach Rudolf Jugo from the bench. What are your ambitions this year? How realistic would be to win the title?

My current club Peja is in the first position in this league, and on my team, I have very prominent names, such as Polish guard Dardan Berisha who will play at the European Championships this summer. The team is coached by one of the best Croatian coaches Rudolf Jugo . The Club's ambitions are clear- march to the national title and cup title but our eternity rival Pristina has the same goal. However I have no doubt that we can win it all this year.

What are your plans for the future? Do you plan to go back to Montenegro as a player or coach?

My plans are now tied to my ciub Peja but it is certain that I will return one day as a player because my dream is one day to finish my career where I started it long time ago.....

Thanks for the interview Samir. Greetings from Montenegro!

All the best to you and Montenegro be always be a part of my heart!
