Nikola Mirotic posts funny tweet ahead of USA-Spain semifinal matchup


As Spain looks ahead to a highly-anticipated semifinal matchup against the United States in the Olympic men’s basketball tournament on Friday, forward Nikola Mirotic’s Twitter game is in top form.

On Thursday, Mirotic posted an image of him and Chicago Bulls teammate Jimmy Butler, who is competing for Team USA, with a caption quoting a famous slogan of American president (and noted Bulls fan) Barack Obama.

Mirotic has reason to feel confident after his 23 points led Spain to a blowout quarterfinal victory over rivals France on Wednesday. Still, with the United States heavily favored to win and Pau Gasol possibly out with a calf injury, Mirotic may have to prepare himself for a more graceful showing in defeat than he exhibited last time around.
