The day I trashed talked Marko Milic
Updated: Jun 20, 2019
I was 21 years old at the time. Coming from a really good performance in the quarterfinal the day before, I was full of confidence. So I had the brilliant idea of trash talking Marko Milic before the game (His short bio: 202 cm 110 kg and first slovenian player to ever make it to the NBA).
He didn't say a word.
First offense for us... A teammate misses the shot... I want to jump for the rebound... I see Marko Milic watching me and not even look at the ball... He turns then his back on me and throws an elbow directly on my forehead with all his power. It was like a Truck ran me over.... I saw all black... I fell on the floor and don't remember what happened for the next 2 min.
I finished with 3 points and we lost 87:61.
Ideserved it. Lesson learned.
STAY HUMBLE! ALWAYS!
