Former Los Angeles Lakers center Vlade Divac, whose first English words were “Yabba, dabba doo” has been appointed the head of humanitarian issues and sports by Boris Tadic, President of Divac’s native Serbia.

According to the AP:(Divac) told reporters today he has taken up the post in order to help promote humanitarian work in Serbia. After retiring from basketball, Divac moved to his native Serbia where he has a business and runs a humanitarian organization.

No word yet on whether Deca Losih Muzicara, the Serbian band that penned the early 90s hit “Vlade Divac” will get back in the studio to honor Divac’s newest venture. But, for those of you who haven’t witnessed the pop/punk/ska revolution that is DLM, here’s a YouTube gem that features their biggest hit:
