Partizan a special situation - Feb 24, 2016

In my 6th season professionally I got a call to play for the historic Partizan Belgrade team. I have heard so many great things about this club I was vey anxious to play for a club of this magnitude. I arrived in great standing with a very good season before in the Russian League playing with Spartak Primorie Vladivostok.
I can't describe the feelings I had when I played in front of the home crowd. The singing the chanting was exhilarating. There is nothing like 10-15 thousand people lifting up their team. The fans of Partizan are extremely passionate.
I started out the season very good in Partizan winning the first few games and playing solid in the Adriatic League. All of sudden going for a loose ball a guy leaps and lands directly on my ankle! It was a high ankle sprain the first of my career! It was a devastating blow. I didn't recover fast enough and when I did play the next few games my rhythm was totally off and I wasn't competing at the high level that was needed to stay there. So I was released thereafter shortly and it was the first time I have bee release by a club.
I learned a valuable lessons this year.
I learned that even though things might not go your way that doesn't mean it was a total failure. The fans still embrace me today as a player in the Partizan Brotherhood. When I step on the court my heart and determination matched their energy and enthusiasm. I learned how to battle back from injury and maintain my composure. I'm a firm believer in things happen for a reason and it's how you react to the circumstances that allow you to grow as a person. I have to thank Partizan for giving me the opportunity to play in Euroleague and high level basketball. The fans still embrace me and I played for legendary coach Dule Vujosevic.
