Krstic Q&A
Nenad Krstic, signed on Dec. 20, has appeared in 15 games, averaging 8.8 points and 5.3 rebounds.

Q: How do you like Oklahoma City?

A: It’s peaceful. I lived in New York for four years. New York is a lot of fun but here you can find your peace. I like the people here. Everybody is so nice.

Q: Do people recognize you?

A: Sometimes. Sometimes I’m the tall guy on the Thunder. Sometimes they know my name. A few call me Krispy (the nickname given to him by Desmond Mason). It’s fun for me, but I’m still getting used to it.

Q: How do you see this franchise the next couple of years?

A: We’re a young team, a young organization. A new team. The arena is always full. It’s a good situation. We just need to grow up. We’ll get better next year. We’re already getting better.

Q: Since you live in Serbia, where will you be during the All-Star break?

A: Miami. I have friends there. It will be sort of like a vacation.
