Wayne Brabender (1965-85)
Minnesota Morris University (USA), Real Madrid (ESP), Cajamadrid (ESP)
One of the players who helped Real Madrid become the winningest team in Euroleague history was sharpshooter Wayne Brabender, a forward ready to fill the basket at any time. Brabender came to Europe as an inexperienced player and left Madrid as a European legend following 16 consecutive seasons wearing the team's famous white jersey. Brabender helped Madrid to Euroleague titles in 1968, 1974, 1978 and 1980, averaging 18.5 points in those four wins. An elegant, finesse shooter with unlimited range, Brabender helped Madrid remain one of the teams to beat for two decades.
WHAT THEY SAY...
"It is a great honour and very, very good that after so many years, people still remembers you. Playing for Real Madrid was a completely different experience for me. I had to change by style of play but I was lucky enough to came straight to Madrid. As soon as I found out that they had already won three European Cup titles, that's where I went. It was the best decision I could have made."
