Mirza Delibasic Basketball Career

Mirza Delibasic basketball
Mirza Delibasic
Mirza Delibasic passed away in 2001 but he`ll never be forgotten. Mirza Delibasic “Kindje”, a native of Tuzla, remains the best Bosnian basketball player ever. He started his sports career as a tennis player winning U14 Bosnian championship. Very soon Kindje switched to playing basketball at Sloboda, Tuzla. In 1972 Delibasic as an U16, U18 NT member moved to Bosna from Sarajevo. In 1979.
Mirza Delibasic "Kindje" led his club Bosna, Sarajevo to the Euroleague championship. After leaving Bosna, Delibasic went to Spain where he was the first non-American foreign player. (along with Juan Corballan, Wayne Brabender, Drazen Petrovic, Arvydas Sabonis) is considered to be one of the best players ever to play for the "royal club" Real Madrid. An route to a place among the European greatest players, Kindje has won everything there was to win including Olympic gold in 1980, European gold three times, World Championship gold in 1978 plus many titles in European club competitions. In addition to having played together for their national team, Mirza Delibasic and Drazen Dalipagic have also played together for Real Madrid. Their performance in a 1981 Euroleague game vs. Cibona in Zagreb is only one of the many highlights of their careers. The Bosnian duo, Delibasic-Dalipagic, known as a DD-duo, put on a show that night that no true basketball fan who watched the game will ever forget. Mirza Delibasic scored 33 and Dalipagic 30 points. The game appropriately finished with a two-on-one fastbreak with Kindje making a behind-the-back fake pass to Praja and passing by a defender for a two-handed dunk at the buzzer. Cibona fans put aside their team loss and showed their appreciation for Bosnian stars` performances with standing ovations at the end of the game. Four years ago, Mirza Delibasic was selected the sportsman of the 20th century in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Every kid in former Yugoslavia has seen the scenes when he made the decisive shot in Grenoble when he brought Bosna Sarajevo on the top of Europe against Emerson. He had a legendary shot, a superb ball handling, court vision and an understanding of the game which made him a basketball genius. He played not only to win but to celebrate the beauty of this sport. After Mirza, basketball in Yugoslavia wasn t like it was before.

Drazen Dalipagic Basketball Career

Drazen Dalipagic basketball
Drazen Dalipagic
Nickname: Praja
Born November 27, 1951 in Mostar, he was one of the most dominating players in Europe during the seventies and the eighties.
Dražen, widely known by his nickname Praja, but also called "the drake from Mostar", started playing basketball at the age of 19 and only two years later, in 1973, made his debut in Yugoslavian National Team. He then played 243 games in Team Yugoslavia, and recorded 3,131 points, winning three gold medals at the European Championships, four medals in the World Championships (Silver, 1974; Gold, 1978; Bronze, 1982 and 1986) and playing three timee at the Olympic Games, capturing the 1980 Gold Medal. At the 1978 World Championship in Manila in 1978, Dalipagic was the top scorer (200 points) and the MVP. He was elected the best athlete of Yugoslavia in 1978 and is one of the most decorated athletes in Yugoslavian history. While playing for Partizan Beograd, (1971-78, 1979-80, 1981-82) he was named European player of the Year in 1977, 1978 and 1980. In 1976 he led Partizan to Yugoslavian League title, and to FIBA Korac Cup win in 1978. He also played seven seasons in Italy, scoring 7993 points (33,2 ppg) and being the top scorer of the league five times. He was an unbelieveble scorer, capable of streaks of 10 or 12 consecutive long distance baskets, but also unstoppable inside, thaks to his great inside moves and fakes. He could have easily played in NBA. He yet holds the Italian League single game scoring record for an import player with 70 points scored on January 25, 1987 in the game Reyer Venezia-Virtus Bologna.
Since he stopped playing basketball professionaly, Dalipagic has lived in Beograd. Served as the President of Atlas Novi Beograd basketball club, and then become a member of the Serbian Basketbal Federation Board.
