“I want to emphasize once again satisfaction because Mega for the first time in the history of the club qualified for the playoffs of the ABA league. I congratulate to Buducnost on a great season where they showed the best in regular season. As far as our team is concerned, we have shown that we were from the beginning of the season gradually growing and we fully deserved placement in the playoffs. We should not forget that we won domestic cup which is also a great result”,

Briefly Zagorac recapitulated current course of the season and went on to the semi-final series:

“Buducnost is justified favorite. We are quite affected by the injuries that took place during the season, and now with injury of Ognjen Jaramaz who we will surely miss him a lot, as well as other players. However, this does not mean that we give up and to surrender. Now each player must show even more so we can try to surprise the Buducnost”,

Coach of Mega Leks Dejan Milojevic said that he is always optimistic:

“I congratulate the team of Buducnost, they deserved the first place. I think that this year’s ABA League was quite good and  during the season I appealed to the media to affirmative write about it and to focus on the positive side, because there is errors everywhere, even in the NBA. For us is to show the best possible display on the ground and I hope that the semi-finals and finals will be the feast of basketball. Buducnost is now better team but sport is good just because it do not always win a better opponent. While we have a slightly chance to win, I will always be an optimist and I will try to convey that to my players. I might in fact succeed, we’ll see”,

Finished Milojevic.
