    You know what I remember?

    Him winning European championship, and after scoring in the finals 60+ points, and being biggest star in Europe, he woke up next morning at 6 o clock and ran 13 miles.

    He was probably hardest worker ever to play this game, at worst in top 3. There are tons of stories like this.

    Drazen was a monster. I remember when he broke a backboard dunking and dropped 100-105 points in a Euro game. He was only getting better too. Gone too soon.

    One of my favorite ballers of all time. The TRUE best Euro player ever (sorry Dirk). Man, he woulda been phenomenal if he’d been around a little longer. Sad loss.
