It has been almost a decade since Elmedin Kikanovic first pulled on the Bosnia and Herzegovina jersey, and through the years he has quietly grown into the team's biggest threat in the paint and subsequently, his country's top center. The star-spotlight has usually been thrown on other team-mates, but big man Kikanovic has rarely disappointed. He made his debut back in 2006, only a week after turning 18, but it was another five years - partly because of a 12-month ban he served in 2010 for breaking doping regulations - before he assumed a bigger role within the team. His impact has only grown ever since, averaging double digits in scoring for the past three years, including EuroBasket 2011 and 2013, respectively. This summer, Kikanovic is coming off the best season of his career as he averaged 16.6 points and 4.6 rebounds over 54 games in all competitions for two clubs - Enisey Krasnoyarsk and SLUC Nancy. Now, in the absence of the country's best player in Mirza Teletovic, it will be Kikanovic who must shoulder an even bigger load for Bosnia and Herzegovina. Luckily for the team and the fans, he has the capabilities of doing just that.
