I refuse to believe that Bogdan Bogdanovic is “already” 26 years old. He’s only in his second year which means he has to be younger than that, and also, look at his face. That is not the face of a dude in his mid-twenties. I should know. That is the face of a dude who is still trying to procure a fake American ID so he can circumvent the surprisingly draconian age limit on alcoholic beverage consumption.
I mean, he looks about the same as Luka Doncic, who is only 19. And he’s about as good, maybe a little better, than him. So that makes him 19 years old. If you’re doubting my logic, which you shouldn’t be, because I have the best logic on YouTube, just look up something called the “transitive property”. Things should become clear to you then.
Why he would lie about his age is a mystery. Normally basketball players who feel like their real age is inadequate (like Thon Maker) lie in the opposite direction. To avoid age-based discrimination in the allotment of minutes is my only guess. Some coaches love giving minutes to rookies and other young’uns even if they suck, especially a team like the Kings. Not like he would need to deceive anyone to receive minutes; he’s too good for that.
