Doesn't exactly fill me with a ton of confidence, but it's good to know from reading the article that he's at least pretty self-aware and humble when it comes to his game and things he's got to work on.

Sounds like Croatia is turning some heads too, which can do nothing but good for the kid's confidence coming in.

I'll be interested in seeing Calderon vs Ukic match up when they play in the Quarters.
