Goran Dragic is a cheerful guy. He’s a star without the ego, complete with a half-glass-full attitude while never getting irritated by long interview sessions or surprise autograph requests.
He’s even good-natured about holding grudges.

“People back home, when I went to the NBA, said ‘he’s going to come back home soon. He’s not good enough,’” he said with a smile. “This season that we’re only going to win 16 games, that we’re going to tank it and try to get better picks.”
