Ivica Zubac is an up-and-coming NBA athlete who currently plays center for the Los Angeles Lakers. Born in Yaice, Croatia in 1997, he began his professional basketball career at a young age with KK Cedevita in the Croatian League. His impressive play earned him international attention and recognition as one of the top prospects from Europe entering the 2016 NBA Draft. He was eventually selected by the Los Angeles Lakers with the 32nd overall pick.
Since joining the league, Zubac has made a name for himself as a consistent contributor on both ends of the floor. His physicality and athleticism make him a valuable asset on defense; he blocks shots and grabs rebounds exceptionally well while also being able to switch onto smaller players on switches without giving up too much ground. Although he has yet to develop into an elite rim protector or shot blocker, his advanced feel for defensive concepts makes him one of LA’s best defenders already – despite his raw frame and lack of experience at this level.
On offense, Zubac shows flashes but still needs time to refine his skillset before becoming an impactful offensive player in this league; however, there are some encouraging signs that suggest that he can develop into an effective scorer down low if given enough opportunities and coaching within LA’s system over time. He runs hard off screens looking for open space near or around basket cuts which puts tremendous pressure on opposing defenders to stay close which then allows other players (like LeBron James) find their way into scoring position more easily once they start driving downhill past poor matchups due to miscommunication or slow foot speed from help defenders trying to cover both angles simultaneously as they collapse down upon them because of Zubacs presence nearby – simply put: Ivica’s ability to spread out defenses allow other scorers around him far more freedom than they normally would be afforded otherwise when attempting creative finishes at/around hoop whenever they need it most thanks largely in part by his own actions beforehand through motion away from ball
