Nikola Mirotic talked about his time in the NBA and the differences with playing in the EuroLeague.

Mirotic said he was not satisfied with his role and wanted a change. That’s why he decided to return to Europe.

“The game was completely different. Games were played every other day, a more individual game and – what I had the hardest time understanding in the first season – is that everything revolves around the stars of the team: training, games, plays.

First, it’s them that they have to touch the ball and then decide. It’s already known who takes the last shots, and I did not understand why. If I’m “breaking my face”, maybe I deserve more shots. In the end it was patience and training,” Mirotic said in a video interview for Sergiobasket Vlogs.
