He also won nine Spanish Cup titles and lifted 12 consecutive Spanish league trophies from 1961 to 1973.

WHAT THEY SAY...
"Being in this list is something that I am very proud of. I am still in the minds of those who rule European basketball and its destiny after so many years. Seeing my name in that list, because 50 years is a long time. Being in the 50 contributors list means a lot for me, personally, and for Real Madrid. Basketball has always been a very important sport, so I believe we all should be happy about that."
