    Petrusev is a way better player than Samanic more skilled too, Samanic didn't show a lot in this tournament and he was unquestionable leader of the Croatian team, he disappeared in the quarter final , but hey draftexpress guys like to hype Croatian players, I remember their fables about Bender lol. They miss a lot as usual , I think they are taking money to hype some players so they could be taken higher in the draft. They underrated Jokic even though you could see he was a special player back then, Petrusev is in similar mold as Jokic, great basketball mind , just way better athlete than Jokic, he's going to be an excellent professional player
    UZEO SI TROFEJ MACVANE MACVANE MACVANE!!!

    Jokic was underrated in his own country as well. The only youth tournament he ever played in was the U19 WC.

    Sorry but about Bender I disagree, he looked very special in the junior tournaments, he really resembled of Kukoc, I'd swear this guy was going to be the next best thing in European basketball, still can't figure how he ended up so mediocre...

    Everybody loved Bender. He was taken No.4 in the draft.

    I don't think even Jokić mother believed he will be good in NBA.

    Bender had for me 2 big problems. Body and beta male mentality. Just to soft. But he is still very young, just 20 years. His unique defence skills still can make him factor
    Jordi Bertomeu sucks!

    I hope so! I was a huge fan of his at the junior tournaments, back then he had a big self-confidence and he made great plays, he looked really smart and made fantastic assists a la Kukoc, where all these skills are hidden now?? The oxymoron is that at the u16 tournament he looked like having the full package and his only drawback was the shooting, now he has become a player that only shoots (quite) well for 3
