ANDs one of the names of the 2021 that ends, the Serbian actor Darko Peric ends the year triumphing professionally thanks to ‘La Casa de Papel’ and to the interpretation of Helsinki. A jump to the interpretation that gave thanks to basketball on a Barcelona court. peric He went through ‘We Like Basket’ to talk about his great passion: Basketball.

“I grew up in Serbia in a few years where basketball was a religion. It’s almost like the only way out for young people. Half want to be basketball players and the other half tennis players because of Djokovic. Here there are 16-year-old, 2-meter-high kids who they could play quietly in ACB. I love this sport and I can’t get wet on my team, I have friends in Red Star and Partizan.”he remembered.

“The Palau this year is ‘on fire’ as I can’t remember, 2 years ago I experienced the Cup final at the Wizink and it was impressive, but Sala Pionir is something else, the fault lies with the architecture, the acoustics it has and the culture of basketball because in Serbia nobody sees basketball sitting down”explained about the power of basketball in his country.

There are many players that I have a lot of love for, such as Mirotic, Sergio Llull or Joel Parra, the ‘Dennis Rodman’ from Badalona

“Now that I’m famous I’m living the dreams of the teenage Darko, I meet my idols, I watch the important games… Thanks to basketball I have entered the world of cinema in Spain. Basketball has always been very present in my life. My son has been dribbling the ball since he was 1 year old. I didn’t become a player because you have to sacrifice a lot,” he assured in Radio BRAND.

Peric also took the opportunity to analyze proper names and basketball news. “Zeljko is a God of basketball, what he touches turns into gold and I hope that next year Serbia will have 2 teams in the Euroleague”, he assessed about Obradovic’s return to Partizan. A regular on the courts of our country, he is clear when choosing his favorite players: “There are many players that I have a lot of affection for, such as Mirotic, Sergio Llull or Joel Parra, the ‘Dennis Rodman’ of Badalona”valued.

Asked about the Joventut and Barcelona projects, the Serbian assured that “I’m freaking out with Penya, They are very good and it shows that they have very good chemistry. I love teams like this” and about Barcelona he pointed to the goal of the Euroleague. “I don’t want to bring bad luck, but Barcelona with Mirotic, Higgins and Laprovittola, should be the Euroleague championbut there is a lot left and there are many teams,” he explained.

Finally, Darko Peric compared the well-known roles of ‘The Professor’ and ‘Helsinki’ with today’s basketball. “The Helsinki of Basketball? I would say Jokic because nobody was betting on him, because of his physique… something similar happened to me. The teacher? He would be a very calm coach, just like Phil Jackson.”ended.
