The Crossover: Aleksandar Dzikic
Budućnost Podgorica head coach Aleksandar Dzikic joins Joe on the latest episode of the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague’s official podcast. Last season, the Montenegrin side were crowned champions of the ABA League for the first time in their history, securing a spot in EuroLeague for 2018-19.
The hugely experienced Serb first came through the coaching ranks at Partizan, where he has been head coach on two different occasions. In between, he had spells in Slovenia and Lithuania, as well as in the NBA Summer League and with the Minnesota Timberwolves in the NBA itself.
Dzikic reflects on the highs and lows of his coaching career, talks about life in Belgrade during the Yugoslavian conflicts of the 1990s, chats about his eccentric parents, about motivating people with music and about how he managed to get away with accepting two NBA offers at the same time!
