Sani was "left for dead" in 2002 after a potentially career-ending knee injury. However, he was operated on and managed to overcome a genetic knee disorder and is now having a respectable career at the point guard spot. But he was poised for far greater accomplishments after a stellar junior career. Sani joined the national team at just 17 years of age. After sitting out the whole 2002-03 season, he gradually recovered to an above average level. Sani is a natural leader who can play both guard positions.
He is an excellent shooter and one-on-one player, who is also a good ball handler, passer and one who performs well in the clutch. Becirovic is locked to make the team for Japan and prove his injuries are a thing of the past.
