Bosnia and Herzegovina held the chance to go to EuroBasket 2022 playoffs in their hands but lost the last two games against France and Lithuania, which meant that the Balkan national team had to go home. Talking about the experience, the biggest star of the roster, Jusuf Nurkic, was nothing but proud of the work the team did throughout the tournament.

When they stayed four in one hotel room and didn't know if they would get money to do a trip to Estonia for the only scheduled preparation games this summer, this win against the reigning European champions looked so far away. But it never really bothered this group that much. They were too united and focused on the main goal that looked improbable to others and brought them so much joy.
2022-09-02
One guest at the Bosnia & Herzegovina practice drew a lot of attention on a casual day off afternoon in Cologne. He was sitting close to the national team coaches and was the first who Jusuf Nurkic approached after the practice at Lanxess arena. That was the Portland Trail Blazers head coach Chauncey Billups, who came to Germany to visit his center and watch him in three EuroBasket 2022 games.
