Bojan Bogdanovic is in his rookie season in the NBA and he has already learned a lot about the ups and downs that NBA players go through. Bogdanovic started off the season as a starter, but a massive cold slump provoked Lionel Hollins to not just remove Bogdanovic from the starting lineup, but he also removed the rookie from the rotation in general. Bogdanovic did manage to earn his place in the starting lineup back and although his three point shooting continues to hurt him, Bogdanovic has looked much more poised and comfortable lately.

Bogdanovic has shown flashes of how good he can be and all people that have seen him play overseas know just how good Bogdanovic can be at this level. Bogdanovic’s former teammate Nikola Vucevic said earlier in the season that his friend Bogdanovic will be just fine and his simple message to Bogs was “Don’t Panic.” In four of the Nets last five games Bogdanovic has scored in double figures so the Nets can only hope that he carries that momentum into the second half of the season.
