Milan Macvan is already a world champion after earning a gold medal with Serbia at the FIBA U19 World Championship on home soil in 2007.
This summer, he will play his second FIBA competition with the senior national team to get a second world champion title.
Milan Macvan was born in Vukovar, in Croatia. Like Milos Teodosic and a lot of other talented Serbian players, he started his career with FMP Zeleznik. But even before playing for the senior team of Zeleznik, he revealed himself with the junior national team.
In 2007, he earned two gold medals both at the FIBA U19 World Championship and the U18 European Championship, establishing himself as the leader of both teams.
With the U18 Serbian National Team, he averaged 19.3 points and 10.3 rebounds.
He quickly showed that he is a true competitor with a fighting spirit and a lot of charisma.
He also draws comparisons with his glorious elder Zoran Savic as an undersized inside player. He is also a very good long distance shooter.
On November 2007, he moved to KK Hemofarm Vrsac where he had the opportunity to get an important role with the first team.
At 19, he was already averaging 11.3 points and 4.2 rebounds in the Eurocup and displaying his talent all over Europe.
In 2008, he won the gold medal with Serbia at the U20 European Championship in Riga.
In 2009, he was selected to the Nike Hoop Summit and he led the international team to victory over the USA.
He earned the MVP title of the game with 23 points, 14 rebounds and 6 assists.
Last summer, he debuted with the senior national team and helped Serbia to win the silver medal at the EuroBasket 2009 although he averaged only 2.8 points and 1.9 rebounds. He is expected to assume a bigger role this summer at the FIBA World Championship in Turkey.
Then he will probably leave Vrsac to play in the Euroleague before maybe even joining the NBA.
