Nikola Vucevic, Orlando Magic

“Boris was my teammate and roommate at Stoneridge Prep in Simi Valley, CA. It was a really tough year for me mentally because it was my first time being away from my family coming from Montenegro. When I was down mentally Boris was always there to remind me that as long as I work hard and stay positive everything will work out somehow. And even today he still does this. I was always impressed by his work ethic and love for the game and how he always found way to stay positive no matter what. If you are looking for someone with high basketball IQ and that cares about people and the game of basketball, Boris is that guy.”
