In Bosnia, Mirza Teletovic's put-back slam didn't happen till nearlyt 3 a.m. local but in places like Jablonica, where he grew up, and Mostar, where he was born, there was celebrating. It's only preseason, but the "Mirza Fearza" and 3-of-7 shooting from deep gave the locals hope that the captain of their national team won't spend so much time on the bench this season.
Teletovic himself retweeted one report of his dunk.
...then added in English how it made him feel..
