KK Zadar, Zadar

Beginnings

People in Zadar are extremely proud on their basketball tradition and in accordance with the saying that »God created the human, while Zadar created basketball«, it might be true, that the very beginnings of basketball game in Croatia, if not the entire former Yugoslavia happened in this Dalmatian town, where everyone is poisoned with the love for basketball and knows everything about basketball.

Glory Days
