Orlando Magic shooting guard Mario Hezonja is as cocky as they come.

The No. 5 pick in the 2015 draft splashed home 24 points for Croatia in a friendly against Bosnia on Thursday, including an 11-point outburst in a three-minute span:

With time dwindling down and his team up by 15 points, the 20-year-old drilled a three-pointer in front of the Bosnian bench, turned around and dapped up the coach, who looked understandably baffled:

Oh my bad, they were already up 15. Pushed it to 18. Even better.

Keep in mind, everyone, that Hezonja isn’t big on the whole “respect” thing. Here’s what he told Sportske novosti (h/t Sportnando) in July 2014:

Respect? No, I never had respect to anybody on a basketball court. I heard about, "If they smell blood, you get eaten." I'm not like that. I don't care. Whether it's a veteran or a young player standing in front of me I always have the same goal. I want to run over everybody.

Mario loves him some Mario. Here’s hoping he tries this on San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich next year.
