Without a doubt, Aleksa Avramovic emerged as a prominent hero for Serbia during the FIBA World Cup in Manila. He played an essential role in propelling Serbia to the position of silver medalist, primarily thanks to his resolute defensive skills.

In an interview with Mozzart Sport, Partizan’s points guard elaborated on why he believes that Germany truly earned the title of champions.

“We watched them and we knew that they are the best team in the championship because they have been together for a long time, they work great,” Avramovic said.

“They have a leader in Schroder, they are full of NBA talent who play in the national team together every year and this is the crowning glory of their career, but we could have messed with their strings.

“They were simply more physically fit, especially since we were without two very important players – Ognjen Dobrić and Nikola Milutinov, who were injured. We could not match their strength. They deservedly won, and I congratulate them on that.”
