He is reliable, strong, smart, responsible and successful; Minister of Defense of the basketball club Red Star – Branko Lazic. A man who can achieve impossible, for whom there is no dead ball or lost game; the guy who is a pride of red-white fans in Srbija, who takes you through the most beautiful country in the Balkans.
Which part of Srbija is the most beautiful to you and why?
Western part is the most beautiful to me because I have been born there, because of beautiful landscapes, memories from my childhood…
Where you would take the visitors from abroad if you would have a task to show them Serbia in seven days?
First of all, seven days is too short time to show them my birth town and especially not whole Srbija, thus we would start in my Ljubovija and then continue by Drina flow and other rivers. Of course, there are mountains, all except towns, crowded streets and noise. The aim would be to enjoy the nature in peace and silence…
How you relax during summer breaks near Drina?
With hot meat and cold bear and good boat for regatta.
Which is your favourite place in Belgrade for relaxation, coffee, lunch, and why?
Definitively that is Sava quay regarding the fact there are many restaurants and places for enjoying where I can relax and spend free time in the best possible way.
Which is your philosophy of basketball and what it means to you in your life?
My philosophy of basketball is based on constant work and efforts. It takes great persistency and team work with maximum efforts in order to achieve the best results. Basketball now is a big part of my life and it is something that fills me and makes my daily life and makes me happy.
Where do you see yourself in 15-20 years?
I see myself as realised sportsman, successful businessman and family man who will have enough time to dedicate himself to hobbies and thing he loves.
What else you did not achieve with Red Star and you wish to do?
Only one club trophy which I miss with Red Star is conquering Euro league.
For the end, which is your message to supporters of Red Star?
Anyone who loves you now is with us here…
