We already know how beloved Jusuf Nurkic is in Rip City, and unsurprisingly, his native Bosnia loves him, too.
A video surfaced on twitter Wednesday of supporters attending a Bosnian National Team soccer match who break out into a chant supporting their homegrown NBA star. Nurkic underwent surgery Tuesday to repair compound fractures in his tibia and fibula on his lower left leg, a devastating season-ending injury that could significantly alter the career trajectory of the 24-year-old.
Watch the crowd chant their support of the Bosnian Beast:
Nurk’s injury has drawn reaction from all over the sports media landscape, and we ask you how this might affect the Blazers chances of ending their 10-game playoff losing streak.
