In an interview with FIBA, Boban Marjanovic talked about the target of Serbia in the 2019 Basketball World Cup.

Here is what the center of the LA Clippers said:

“We want to reach the Semi-Finals and fight for the Final to maybe get a shot for the gold medal. We’ll go to the World Cup with a lot of ambition, and we’re going to China with the goal to show once again that we are one of the best teams in the world.

I hope that everybody’s going to be very healthy. Everyone is very excited about the possibility of having another great run this summer.

We can’t take qualification for the next round for granted. We’ll have to compete and bring the same energy no matter who we play against.

So many surprises are possible in a competition like this, and we don’t want to become one, in a bad way.”
