Partizan (SRB), Virtus Bologna (ITA), Miami Heat (USA), Dallas Mavericks (USA)
An incredible athlete with unlimited shooting range and competitive fire, "Sasha" Danilovic was only 22 years old when he guided Partizan to its only Euroleague title in 1992, scoring 25 points in the title game against Joventut. After a brief stay in the NBA, Danilovic returned to Europe and helped Kinder Bologna lift its first Euroleague trophy, too, in 1998. Danilovic's legendary career also featured four Italian League titles with Kinder, four European Championships trophies with Yugoslavia, as well as a Korac Cup and a Yugoslavian League crown with Partizan.
WHAT THEY SAY...
"I am pretty honored, very honored. I believe it's a wonderful thing. It's the first 50 Years. I suppose the next one will be in another 50 years. I am pretty honored and grateful to the people that did this beautiful thing to remember all the players that contributed to European basketball. My biggest memories is winning the Champions' Cup with Partizan in 1992 and with Kinder Bologna in 1998. Those are the most beautiful moments in my sports career. Basketball changed a lot in recent years. I can't say it's another basketball. It's new, but it is always the same: you have to get a basket if you want to win."
