From “Tragic” to MVP: Goran Dragic’s career progression warms this jilted Suns fan’s heart

Dragic’s two stints with the Suns ended prematurely, as did his mentor’s. For the first time in their small country’s history, Slovenia has won the European Championship called Eurobasket, beating Serbia (Bogdan Bogdanovic), Spain (Gasols, Ricky, etc.), Latvia (Porzingis) and Ukraine in the elimination rounds. And they can thank the Dragon, Goran Dragic, who was once called the worst player in the NBA when he came over at the tender age of 22, developed into one of the better point guards in the NBA over the past several years and now is the MVP of Eurobasket 2017. ...

Is the Dwyane Wade shooting guard era over for the Miami Heat?

Is the Dwyane Wade shooting guard era over for the Miami Heat?

The dominant performance by point guard Goran Dragic for Slovenia could lead the Heat shifting to today’s faster paced game. This season could witness a change of the guards for the Miami Heat: from a shooting guard to a point guard style, that is. Having All-Stars Dwyane Wade at shooting guard and Shaquille O'Neal at center, and then later LeBron James and Chris Bosh at forwards, lead Miami to a style of play that marginalized the point guard position. Goran Dragic‘s stellar play this summer may change that approach for the Heat this season. The play of Stephen Curry, Russell Westbrook...

Dragic faces quick potential turnaround with training camp start

Goran Dragic’s run with Slovenia in the EuroBasket tournament could end just before training camp. As I’ve written about before, Goran Dragic has played scintillating basketball for the Slovenian national team at the EuroBasket tournament this summer. But what was a mere hypothetical possibility a week ago has become more plausible — Dragic’s run in EuroBasket could leave a quick turnaround for the start of training camp. Slovenia is 6-0 and will face Latvia on Tuesday. If Dragic is able to keep Slovenia undefeated, he and his team will play in the semifinal game against the winner...

Goran Dragic comes in at number 18 on the all-time countdown. 18. Goran Dragic Goran Dragic is a left-handed point guard from Ljubljana, Slovenia. Born on May 6th, 1986, the 31-year-old is Miami’s current starter at the one. He was initially selected in the second round of the 2008 NBA Draft by the San Antonio Spurs. The Spurs had traded for the selection with the Toronto Raptors, for Giorgos Printezis, and two days later, they sent him to the Phoenix Suns for Malik Hairston, a cash payout, and another second round pick (DeJuan Blair).

Dragic impresses in EuroBasket competition

After signing his five-year, $90 million contract with the Miami Heat in 2015, Goran Dragic infamously showed up to training camp out of shape. That won’t be the case this year. Playing in his final international competition for EuroBasket, the Heat guard had a scintillating three-night performance for his native Slovenia. Dragic scored 30, 29 and then 20 points to lead Slovenia to a 3-0 start in the tournament. The last game, a 78-72 win over Greece Sept. 3, featured Dragic scoring nine points in the decisive fourth quarter. @Kzs_si's @Goran_Dragic with his classic move! #Dracarys...

Can Goran Dragic recreate last season’s success?

Can Goran Dragic recreate last season’s success?

Goran Dragic was phenomenal last season for the Heat. We analyze whether or not he’ll be able to recreate that success this season. Last season I considered Goran Dragic to be Miami’s best player. Without Dwyane Wade demanding the ball, he was finally able to increase the pace of Miami’s offense and run something similar to his time with the Suns. This worked for the Heat as Dragic was able to develop rapport with certain players, most evidently Dion Waiters and Wayne Ellington. Last season, Dragic averaged 20.3 points, 5.8 assists, and 3.8 rebounds per game. Keep in mind that in...

Wayne Ellington 50% Goran Dragic 48% James Johnson 47% That alone doesn't make Ellington a point God, but breaking out of his "Golden Arm" box could lead to Miami having more flexibility with WE on the court.
