Mirza Teletovic enjoyed his time in the NBA but it was boring due lack of competitiveness outside the top two teams. The 33-year-old Bosnian shared his impressions about the top league in the world in an interview to Radio Vitoria.

After becoming one of the most prolific shooters in Europe with Baskonia, Teletovic moved overseas in 2012 to join the Brooklyn Nets. He also played for the Phoenix Suns and the Milwaukee Bucks which was also his last professional team.

Despite managing to establish himself as a solid backup in the NBA with career average of 8.1 points per game, he was never a part of a team which would contend for the championship.

And that was the part of the NBA experience that Teletovic found boring. He revealed in the interview that for him the time in Europe was more enjoyable because his team was always competing for titles, be it EuroLeague, Spanish League or Spanish Cup.
