Boki Rewards a Father's Pride

When Boki Nachbar was 11, his father would drive him 100 miles across Slovenia to and from practice. When he was 17, his father paid $50,000 to buy out his contract so he could play for a better team. And now, when Boki Nachbar is 26, his father Vlado has seen him put together his best stretch as an NBA player, hitting three's, dunking over taller players, helping his team win. His father's presence may be driving him, but confidence and maturity are sustaining Nachbar.
