Pierluigi Marzorati (1970-1991, 2006)
With his court vision, leadership and determination, Pireluigi Marzorati was a natural-born winner who took Cantu to back-to-back Euroleague titles in 1982 and 1983. In his 22 consecutive seasons with Cantu, Marzorati also guided the club to three consecutive Korac Cup crowns from 1973 and 1975, as well as four Saporta Cups between 1977 and 1981. With nine European trophies, Marzorati ranks as one of the biggest winners in European basketball history. He also led Italy to the EuroBasket 1983 title. Marzorati, who played 692 Italian league games with Cantu and 278 with the Italian national team, is still a living legend.
WHAT THEY SAY...
"I am very happy to be included in the list of 50 contributors to European club basketball. It is very important for me and I think it is a good chance to meet a few friends I played with or against. It is going to be a good thing for everybody. I played in Pallacanestro Cantu for 23 seasons and had a lot of teammates. I was lucky to have talented ones and also good coaches throughout my career."
