Goran Dragic happy to continue career: ‘I never thought I’m going to be in the league for 15 years’

Goran Dragic provides an insightful words regarding the continuation of his career.

He told The Athletic’s Darnell Mayberry that going in for the 15th year of his career bears a special opportunity.

As such, with the window of his career slowly closing, the Slovenian guard admitted that it’s now all about enjoying what’s left in him.

“It means a lot,” Dragic said. “I never thought I’m going to be in the league for 15 years. When I came to the league, it was not easy. I needed some time to adjust to this style of play and the culture and everything. But I always worked hard. I always tried to be better the next season. I feel like because of that I’m still here.

“This means I just want to enjoy basketball. I’m probably close to the end of my career. I just want to enjoy it and win games. I think this is a really awesome group that I’m a part of. Everybody is such a nice guy and having fun. And of course, now it’s all on us to start winning and it’s going to be much easier.”

Dragic inked a one-year deal with the Chicago Bulls last offseason and is expected to provide ball handling supplies with Lonzo Ball still recovering.
