One of the most prolific players in the history of European basketball departs Slovenia on Monday with the medal he dreamed of all his life and an individual award he deserved throughout his decorated career.
EuroBasket 2013 hosts Slovenia overcame a slow start on Saturday and held off Ukraine late to clinch a 69-63 victory and finish their home tournament in fifth place.

Zoran Dragic was already a known commodity coming into EuroBasket 2013. Obviously there was being the younger brother of NBA point guard Goran Dragic and their striking resemblance - save for Zoran's blondish locks compared to Goran's brown hair.
