BELGRADE (Reuters) - Serbian reformers are looking to giant basketball star Vlade Divac to put them head and shoulders above ultra-nationalists in presidential polls.
The 7-foot-1 Sacramento Kings veteran was more likely to be concentrating on the current playoff race than becoming his country's next head of state.

But in a sign of mounting concern at the lack of a pro-reform champion, Divac's name was put into play in basketball-crazy Serbia Tuesday as soon as news broke that Prime Minister Vojislav Kostunica would not be a contender.

"Divac for President," was the tabloid Kurir's headline.

Serbian liberals and Western diplomats fear the ultra-nationalist Radicals, whose leader Vojislav Seselj is in The Hague awaiting trial on war crimes charges, would simply stop the clock on economic and political reform if they could.

Were it not for a law declaring the results of last November's election void because turnout was below 50 percent, Radical Party acting leader Tomislav Nikolic would already be president, and in a position to at least delay legislation.
