Serbs in the NBA: Jokic to breakout in a big way

Long gone are the days when Divac and Stojakovic would represent Serbia at the highest level of basketball in the NBA.

Champions League: Juventus…and the rest

Juve said goodbye to Pogba, Morata, Isla and Pereyra along with others, but the team quickly turned around and replaced those players. Higuain came with a huge price tag and anything but a superb performance in the Champions League will be a complete let down. Pjanic was brought in to distribute the ball and get players such as Dybala and Higuain involved as much as possible. The backline pretty much…
