For somebody like me who grew up in the Jordan era, Toni Kukoc was the European part within this great Chicago Bulls team.
To be honest, I really lost track what Toni did after his great career with the Chicago Bulls. Of course I noticed that the Croatian forward played for the Milwaukee Bucks until the 05/06 season, but he never reached the status of that great three point shooter that he was with the Bulls. People easily forget, that after Jordan and Pippen, Kukoc was the third best scorer of the Bulls in their championship years.
As I just stopped by at euroleague.net, it made me smile to see an interview with Toni Kukoc on their site, but when I actually watched it, I was really surprised by Toni Kukoc’s look. To me he looks more like a surfer from Hawaii, who does not care about making money – well he probably does not have to worry about money. After checking out Kukoc’s wikipedia site, I was more surprised since, Toni will be celebrating his 40th birthday this September – time goes fast …
We hope to get to talk to Toni during the Final Four for a few seconds and ask him what he actually is up to now.
