Basketball should be the last thing Nenad Krstic should be worried about right now. Read this fascinating story by Henry Abbott at TrueHoop — Krstic’s hometown in Serbia, where his father still lives, has been decimated by an earthquake.
But he’s still here and still playing basketball for an Oklahoma City Thunder team that isn’t living up to expectations yet.
Krstic agrees with the critics, the Thunder are not playing well enough right now, he told Abbott.
“We have a tough, tough schedule coming up. It’s going to be interesting. We got to play better. We don’t play consistently. Maybe it’s like last year, we were like 12-14 or something and we turned it up and played better. But I don’t know if that’s going to be the case this year. … We’ll see.”
