    I think the best player in born ’ ARMIN MAZIC… He’s dominating in the all Italy,he’s gonna make a huge carrer !

    If Armin is better they would not sent Ivanov form Beneton, but him. To be dominating in Italy does not mean anything since Italy does not play important role in Europe region in youth basketball.

    It’s true. But,Armin was on Tournament in Slovenia 2 years ago in first five,and he beats Luka Rupnik,than in Budapest he was in ALL STAR Team,he’s 197 tall and he’s Point Guard don’t forget it.And the most important thing he’s practicing with Italian Second Division PRO Team. Every team in Europe wants him…

    OK. For what national selection will Armin play on Eurochanpionship U16 this summer . That is the best place to see him playing against best 1993. born in Europe. Almost all form Jordan camp will be there.

    he’s gonna play for Czech National TEAM…he’s gonna kicks their ass man…

    Is Mazic croatian or czech ????

    Btw, Nenad Miljenovic is the best player on the list. His nickname is “serbian ginobili”.

    Croatian serb (born and raised in Vukovar) Dusan Bogdanovic (F/C 207 Real Madrid) is also one of the best prospects in this generation. The last news says that he will probably play for Spain, unfortunately.

    Mazic was playing for croatian national team,but just friendly games,now he’s playing with czech. Btw: Bogdanovic was playing with Mazic in Croatia 2 years ago. Dusan isn’t nothing special.Will se on european championship.

    Mazic is not Czech Player -I would say, he is Crotian player. And he is NOT going to play for czech national team.

    Armin,.. Is that you – “partizan”, how can you write about yourself??? And you’re NOT THE BEST!

  • 12 Bryant - // Jul 17, 2009 at 11:15 pm

    Armin, you are just a aforethought man, just that and nothing else!

  • 13 partizan // Jul 19, 2009 at 11:16 pm

    I’m not him…I play in Belgrade and my friend is Dusan Bogdanovic thats how I know him. I dont care what are you thinking about that guy “bryant”…

  • 14 Bryant - // Jul 21, 2009 at 1:09 pm

    O.k. … ’cause, Armin, is that kind of guy, that just loves write about himself,..

  • 15 NDONG // Mar 23, 2010 at 11:07 pm

    Guys, be real…Mazić is in the top 5 players in Europe, of course in their age..(`93) also with Miljenovic, Rupnik and other players…
    He is tall 198cm, and he is gonna make huge career.
    We were playing together in Croatian National Team and I can say that he is not guy that he would write about himself, so U can`t say something about someone if u don`t know him…
