Coming to America: a Tough Time for Spirited Ilic

His nickname is Borat and although he comes from great country of Serbia, not great country of Kazakhstan, Mile Ilic shares one thing with the movie character: a very good sense of humor. In spite of barely playing--he has yet to score his first NBA point--Ilic is holding it together, leaning on his two Serbo-Croatian speaking teammates, Nenad Krstic and Boki Nachbar, and his sister, a former professional basketball player who just arrived in America. And watch out: he has a car.
