Jusuf Nurkic is a sensation. The center has the Portland Trail Blazers’ season, pushed them into the eighth spot in the playoffs, and delighted fans back home in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

While this lacks the production value of, say, Kristaps Porzingis, I appreciate its simplicity. It’s not too long, it’s ridiculous and it’s extremely catchy. It also has Nurkic’s approval -- the Bosnian Beast has already retweeted it three times. Don’t be surprised if the Blazers play it during one of their upcoming home games.about
