Nemanja Bjelica posts heartfelt goodbye to Warriors as NBA profession ends


Nemanja Bjelica’s short tenure with the Warriors was an unforgettable one. 

After announcing his departure from Golden State and the NBA to pursue opportunities overseas, Bjelica gave an official, heartfelt goodbye to Dub Nation on Wednesday. 

Bjelica thanked a lot of people, and gave a special shout-out to “the perfect fans”. 

“To all of you, for this unforgettable experience to shut my NBA chapter, thanks. I’ll all the time remember this season, these fans and the Bay. At all times a Warrior, Thanks,” he wrote. 

He also thanked his teammates who become “brates,” Serbian for “brothers”. 

The 6-foot-10 Serbian forward signed with the Warriors right before the beginning of last season.

Bjelica averaged 6.1 points, 4.2 rebounds and a couple of.2 assists in 16.1 minutes per game through the 2021-22 regular season. He appeared in 15 of Golden State’s 22 postseason games and scored a playoff-high 10 points in Game 2 of the first-round series against the Denver Nuggets. 

The 34-year-old reportedly agreed to sign with Fenerbahce Beko of the BSL in Turkey on a two-year contract price $4 million, per Johnny Askounis of Eurohoops

While Dub Nation is unhappy to see Bjelica go, he returns overseas as an NBA champion. And he’ll, as he mentioned, all the time be a Warrior irrespective of where on this planet he’s.
