Jaka Lakovic - EuroBasket 2013 Profile

Team 2012-13: Sidigas Avellino (Italy-Lega)
Career: Geoplin Slovan Ljubljana (Slovenia-1A, 1996-01); Krka Telekom Novo mesto (Slovenia-1A, 2001-02); Panathinaikos (Greece-ESAKE, 2002-06); FC Barcelona (Spain-ACB, 2006-11); Galatasaray Medical Park Istanbul (Turkey-TBL, 2011-13); Sidigas Avellino (Italy-Lega, 2013)

As Slovenia's most experienced player, the role of Jaka Lakovic within the national team is that little bit more important now as he teaches the younger Slovenian players what it takes to win. Lakovic will, on his best day, if you dare to leave him open, rain down triples with ease, and can also win games with long-range shooting. He prefers to shoot from the corners of the arc, and still surprises defenders with his quickness and footwork inside. He is an embodiment of true professionalism and devotion to his country, as he never missed a big event or a qualifying round since he debuted with the senior team in 2001. He deservedly obtained the role of captain and a success at EuroBasket in his home country would be a deserved crown to his international career in his last appearance for Slovenia.
