After being traded by the Los Angeles Lakers to the Los Angeles Clippers last week, 21 year-old Croatian center Ivica Zubac played his first game back in LA Wednesday night against the Phoenix Suns.
 

 
Zubac was praised by NBA Hall of Famer and current Clipper executive Jerry West as well as owner Steve Ballmer. When legendary Clippers announcer Ralph Lawler was asked about the Zubac trade, he said “It almost seemed too good to be true!”
 

 
Zubac is on a mission to make himself a household name in the NBA now that he has a starting roster spot all to himself. When asked how he felt about the trade, Zubac calmly said, “I’m going to try to prove that the Lakers made a mistake.”

    Zubac is a class act! Always welcoming and always makes time for the Croatians…and remember, he’s the ripe ‘ol age of 21.

    @ Ante

    Jerry West !!

    Man you have interviewed the LOGO.

    Love Zubac.

    He will thrive with the Clippers and be in the playoffs.

    Pelinka blessed him with that trade.

    I am officially a Clippers fan!

    You take care of a košarkaš then I am down.

    Zubac is tough.

    No reason why he can’t add a three ball to his game.

    Hope he comes out on a tear after all star break.



  6. The truth says:

    I actually think zubac has a future as a stretch five shooting threes. He shoots in the 80s from the line which has been a great indicator for future three point shooting

    Im glad Zubac is a cool guy not like many of our arrogant Nogometashi like Zvone Boban, Vukojevic just to name a few but I’m sure Modric would be a nice guy the jury is still out on him when he didnt stop his car to sign a few autographs for some young Real Madrid fans outside the training.
