At 26-years-old, big man Miro Bilan took a longer path to the national team jersey than most who made it before him. After a steady rise and improvement year-after-year, Bilan is coming off the best season of his career, and is ready to make his major tournament Croatia debut after being the last man cut from the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup roster. Bilan uses his size and strength to make his presence felt in the paint and outmuscle his opponents, but also has a healthy dose of finesse to his game. Bilan is dangerous in the post and he is an excellent finisher around the basket, but also sinks shots from mid-range with regularity. Now, he is finally set to make his national team debut on the biggest stage - and in front of the home crowd.
