I did not want to post these but when i read comments about betrayal.......
Why is he right for saying NO to Nets:
1. First what he thought about is Mirza situation. Mirza came last season. Pay from his pocket to come to Nets(for contract that is probably less money than what he can get in Europe) and for award he get bench and disrespect from coach. Mirza haters will now tell he was not good enough while Mirza supporters will tell he never get proper chance. Probably as always in life true is somewhere in the middle. And that truth is that Nets were not ready for Mirza and Mirza was not ready for Nets. If you get European player than you can not play iso system. Ok, you can but probably after 2 seasons. They are good players(its not because I am Mirza fan. look other players like Navaro) but you must have plan for them or do not bring them. When Bojan see all that and when he remembers all those players who can blame him for NO.
2. Money. There are not a lot guys out there who are ready to come to play in NBA for less money than what can get in Europe and specialy pay with his personal money buyout contract. Specialy when you do not know what can you expect. Money is important guys. We all know that. :)
3. New Fenerbahce coach Željko Obradović. Hey, Its one of the best in the world. Probably in top 3 active coach. Yea I know you think I can now tell you at least 10 NBA coach who are better than him. But for as Europeans he is one of the best and chance to be coached by him its huge. Especially when that means that you will probably play for best team in Europe and be favorite for EL championship.
4. B.B age. He knows that he can stay at Fener for next 2 years. Try to won EL. Learn a lot from Obradovic and then try in NBA. When he see Mirza with 27(have a lot more experience) and his playing minutes last season who can blame him.
For Nets there are only two ways. One is bring them and give them proper chance or just lose them. Because Toko and Mirza will not be better if they sit on the bench and if that means losing few games so what...........and players from Europe will see that and Nets will be top destination even if they must pay it.
