The starting unit for Team Balkan would be something.
While NBA play was postponed Friday following the boycott over the shooting of Jacob Blake, some of the best European talents got together for dinner at the Walt Disney World campus.

Among the group was his Trail Blazers teammate Mario Hezonja, Goran Dragic of Miami Heat, Nikola Jokic and Vlatko Cancar of the Denver Nuggets, Luka Doncic and Boban Marjanovic of the Dallas Mavericks, Nikola Vucevic of the Orlando Magic and Ivica Zubac of the Los Angeles Clippers.
Nurkic is from Bosnia, Zubac and Hezonja are from Croatia, Vucevic resides from Montenegro, Dragic, Doncic, Cancar all hail from Slovenia, and Marjanovic and Jokic grew up in Serbia.
Hezonja also shared out the photo on Twitter, shouting out his dream team.
The Trail Blazers forward also retweeted a post on Twitter that shared a statue of Croatian legend Drazen Petrovic with the words "paved the way."
While the Balkan boys are enjoying themselves inside the NBA Bubble, basketball fans await to find out when their favorite players will take the court. The Bucks made a decision to boycott their playoff game vs. Orlando Magic following the police shooting of Blake in Kenosha, Wisc., and subsequent games around the league have been postponed. NBA play is expected to resume Saturday.
The Balkan reunion is certainly another incredible moment to an already unprecedented week of sports.
