Juan Antonio Corbalan (1971-91)
Real Madrid (ESP), Valladolid (ESP)
One of the smartest playmakers of his generation, Juan Antonio Corbalan also ranks as the one of the most charismatic players in Spanish basketball history. An accomplished floor general who always came through in the clutch, Corbalan helped Real Madrid take Euroleague titles in 1974, 1978 and 1980. He also added a Saporta Cup trophy in 1987 and a Korac Cup title in 1988 with Madrid. Corbalan also led Madrid to 12 Spanish League titles and captured silver medals at EuroBasket 1983 and the 1984 Olympics with the Spanish national team.
WHAT THEY SAY...
Juan Antonio Corbalan:
"I think it is one of the most important things in my sport life and it is a great honour not only for me, but for all of us. It represents and recognizes the good work done in many, many years playing basketball around the world. This is also an opportunity to be with great players that now became really good friends. As time went by, the rivalry between players from different teams turned into a good friendship with all of them. I wouldn't be able to choose a certain moment in my career. The greatest thing is what I did throughout the years. Basketball represents a very nice time in my life."
