On a related note, and not that we were rooting for his calling to the Serbian National Team, we've recently get to known a rather intriguing point guard born in 1991, not included in the team that played in Greece, who answers by the name of Niksa Nikolic. It seems like an appropriate occasion to introduce him.
A teammate of Filip Sepa in Zemun (which happens to be one of the very few squads, if not the only one, able to beat the almighty FMP junior team this season), Nikolic is a very talented playmaker who evolves on court with a natural flair. Rather creative, flashy at times, his body language illustrates how easily the game seems to come to him. An excellent ball-handler with his right hand, improvable with his left, Nikolic sneaks his skinny body between rivals quite comfortably, usually going right and stepping into the lane, also relying on his nice quickness. Primarily a passer, it's mostly a matter of seeing the court and finding his teammates effortlessly, but also a result of his struggles with his perimeter jumper. Still a first-year junior, his underdeveloped body looks promising, showing a nice wingspan and already more size than the 6-1 he's usually listed at.
Hopefully, he will join next year's squad, which along with the rest of the exceptional 1991 Serbian generation, should put them back on top at the junior stage.
