    If Slovenia wins a medal, we should make a welcome party for Kokoskov at the terrace of the belgrades assembly

    Does Slovenia's coach speak Slovenian? Or does he just speak to the players in Serbian or English?

    10 years ago we had E. Lorbek, Smodiš, Marko Tušek, with Marko Milič and Nachbar potentialy also playing PF... even our 6-8th best PF's played some noticable minutes in euroleague Jurak, Golemac... Jagodnik as a tweener... hell, forgot about Miha Zupan
    At those times, even the biggest basketball fans in Slovenia probably thought Saša Zagorac already ended his career since he was nowhere to be found anymore.

    ...yet we get into a position when we have to naturalise Randolph, in order to avoid Zagorac being our only PF of the tournament ... and than we reach the finals?!?

    What could be the Slovenian team that will play in the World Qualifications (from November '17) and in the next years in the World Championship (2019) and Olympics (2020) if Slovenia qualifies?

    I group players in
    RETIRED: G.Dragic
    NBA: Udrith?
    EUROLEAGUE: Doncic, Randolph, Nikolic, Blazic, Muric, Z.Dragic
    POSSIBLE QUALITY ADDITIONS: Vujacic, E.Lorbek, U.Slokar

    ROSTER WORLD QUALIFICATIONS (no NBA, no EUROLEAGUE):
    * Uppercase for players not in Eurobasket 20017
    Klobucar, Rebec, SISKO, Prepelic, LAPORNIK, VUJACIC, Cancar, Zagorac, KOSI, A.OMIC, Dimec, Vidmar

    ROSTER WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP and OLYMPICS:
    Doncic, Nikolic, UDRITH, Klobucar, Rebec, SISKO, Z.DRAGIC, Prepelic, Blazic, LAPORNIK, VUJACIC, Cancar, Muric, Randolph, Zagorac, KOSI, A.OMIC, Dimec, Vidmar

    QUESTION n.1: in a couple of years what are the players who could make a leap of quality and became a star (considering Doncic- Randolph- Prepelic as actual leader)? Nikolic? Cancar? Others?

    QUESTION n.2: what are the most promising young players born afterwards 1997 (apart from Doncic and Cancar, they are already in Senior National Team) ?

    I start a list:
    Blaz Mesicek 6-6 '97 Brindisi, Italy
    Luka Krajlevic 6-10 '97 BC, NCAA
    Matic Vesel 6-9 '98 Illinois, NCAA
    Jurij Macura 6-9 '99 Baskonia, Spain
    Nik Dragan 6-7 '00 Olimpia Lubiana
    Rok Radovic 6-6 '01
    Gregor Glass 6-5 '01
    Luka Smodis 6-4 '01

    Thank you for your attention
