53 years have passed, since the international basketball community was blessed with the birth of one of the greatest – if not the greatest – European basketball players of all times.
He won 17 championship titles in 10 years with Crvena zvezda by coaching their men’s and women’s sections at the same time! He is one of the greatest basketball legends from this region. His name is Nebojša Popović (1923-2001).
Today is the day when we remember the birthday of one of the greatest not only basketball players, but also sportsmen of the region in entire history – legendary Mirza Delibašić.
On December 9, 1925, a remarkable man was born in Belgrade. The one who would dedicate his whole life to basketball and who would make this game so popular in our region. His name was Radomir Šaper.
Today we celebrate the day, that Zadar basketball got perhaps its greatest player of all times – no other than famous Krešimir Ćosić, whose name even nowadays stands at the home of the basketball in this Dalmatian basketball capital – the Krešimir Ćosić Arena at Višnjik.
