SFS FLASHBACKS | SPANISH BASKETBALL | DRAZEN PETROVIC

Found this priceless video on "youtube" (thanks to "CroPETROforever") of when REAL MADRID ruled SPANISH BASKETBALL. That reign ( the 80s) was made even more glorious thanks to Croatian DRAZEN PETROVIC who was the finest European Basketball Player that I have ever seen in Spanish or European Basketball

The player left Real Madrid for the NBA (USA), being a poineer to open the way for other Europeans, starting a Portland & becoming a major star with the New Jersey Nets. The player tragically died in a car accident in Germany at the age of 28 leaving World Basketball orphan of a major talent that comes once every 20 years.


Here is Drazen Petrovic playing for Real Madrid against FC Barcelona in 1989 where he scored 42 points all by himself. This video is worth watching even if you don´t follow the game, as the man shows all his skills, his complete repertoire & all his "god given" talent. Just amazing & a fabolous Basketball player.
