Today former Lakers centre Vlade Divac will be the feature of an ESPN documentary as part of the '30 For 30'. The series will feature a documentary called 'Once Brothers' about the two time Laker's native Yugoslavia. Director Mike Tolajian looks at the political circumstances of the country and the relationship between Divac and the late Drazen Petrovic. The film focuses on the war dividing Serbia (where Divac is from) and Croatia (where Drazen Petrovic was from). In the 80's Drazen and Vlade teamed up for Yugoslavia but the conflict later had an effect on their friendship. Drazen later tragically died in a car crash at 28, he was one of the greatest players ever. Vlade narrates this very powerful documentary that airs at 5 p.m. Pacific on ESPN. Make sure you tune in as this important documentary goes beyond basketball. TIM DAVID HARVEY.
