    A Chicago Bulls person of interest, Nikola Mirotic, had the cleanest game of his up-and-down season going 7-of-7 from inside the arc and missing his only three-point attempt for 17 points. He added eight rebounds and generally looked more comfortable than he had all year long—though the same could be said of Madrid’s entire team, as all 12 players saw the floor and 11 of 12 scored at least a pair of points.

    The Bulls 2011 first-rounder came into this season having won two straight Rising Star Awards in the Euroleague (awarded to the best player 22 years of age or younger) and is a near lock to pick up another this May (Mirotic turns 22 this February)...

    Mirotic’s tire treads have somehow gripped onto that very rare, fast, lubricated track toward Euroleague greatness, to the point where even leveling off at really good would be viewed as a huge disappointment. Most valuable prospect, no more; it’s MVP time for Mirotic, who was a consensus preseason All-Euroleaguer over at Euroleague Adventures.

    Coming into this week he’d been good, but not necessarily better.

    But before harping on the stagnation in the scoring department between last year and this, remember tRegihat the Euroleague is a competition dominated by grown men. Registering double figures at his age is uncommon; doing it for a Real Madrid team loaded with Europe’s elite—

    Tonight he put up 18 points on 5/9 shooting from 2 pt range and 2/4 from 3. Also grabbed 6 board in 27 minutes. Shammy how hard would it be to do PER36 analysis on Mirotic?

    He wants to make the jump, no doubt about it. He'll be in Chicago in 2014.

    I posted this already in the trade thread but would happen to Mirotic if we somehow traded for Love in the summer of 2014? Where would he fit in? Not realistic but just asking a what if?

    My prediction. He comes over from Spain in the Summer of 2014. Showcases his talents, and the Bulls decide to keep him or ship him to Minnesota for K-Love (if he becomes available) in the 2015 February Trade Deadline.

    Damn dude. His frame is there. If he adds some more muscle, Nikola could be a beast.

    I remember Thibs talking about how he really likes Niko's frame.

    Reminds me of Noah's frame. So he is adding muscle.

    Yes he is. He was listed 6'10 210 in DraftExpress...In EuroLeague he is listed at 6'10 231...If he can be 6'10 245 by the time he gets here, he'll be able to handle most of the big men in the league.

    BFTW, I'm absolutely thinking about the possibility of Mirotic stretching the floor and creating space and then taking his defender out of the paint to the corner and nailing the 3 all night long. He is going to be one of the few bigs (Kevin Durant is one that comes to mind but I'm not comparing the 2) that will nail the 3 with consistancy. I hope he improves everything this year but if he averages say 35-38% of his 3's he will be deadly.

    At his age, he's basically a senior in college and putting up numbers in the second best basketball league in the world. I have been contemplating on who to compare Mirotic too. Names like Kukoc, Shrempf, Ilyasova, Aldridge, and Bargnani comes up, but at the end of the day, he really reminds me of Dirk. Now Dirk is the greatest Euro of all-time, but the similarities are there. It really depends how well Mirotic can transfer his game to the next level.
