Drazen Petrovic Basketball Career

Born: Oct.22, 1964 in little sea town
Died: June 7, 1993
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Outlook:
Drazen is a legend of Croatian and European basketball. It's considered by many as the best ever European player
The late Drazen Petrovic, was hailed as a superstar in his native land. As a young man in 1984-85, he once scored 112 points in a Croatian League game, hitting 40 of 60 from the field. He was a member of the silver medal-winning Yugoslavian (1988) and Croatian (1992) Olympic teams. He also led his Real Madrid Spanish league team to the European Cup Championship in February 1989, and led the Yugoslavian National Team to victory at the European Championships in June of that year. Petrovic's skills propelled him into a brief career in the NBA, cut short by his tragic death at the age of 28 in a car accident in Germany. Although he only played four seasons, it was evident that Petrovic was a budding NBA superstar. He began his career with the Portland Trail Blazers in 1989 before he was traded to the New Jersey Nets in 1991. He remained with the Nets until his death in 1993. Petrovic possessed exceptional shooting ability, and during his final season in 1992-93, he averaged a career-high and team-leading 22.3 ppg on 51.8 percent shooting from the floor, including 44.9 percent from three-point range. That season, he was third in the NBA in 3-point field goal percentage (.449) and was named to the All-NBA Third Team. In his four-year NBA career, he averaged 15.4 ppg on 50.6 percent shooting, including 43.7 percent from three-point range

During four-year NBA career, averaged 15.4 ppg on 50.6 percent shooting; (43.7 percent 3-pointers)
Died tragically in a car accident in Germany at the age of 28. It was a thrill to play against Drazen. Every time we competed, he competed with an aggressive attitude. He came at me as hard as I came at him. So, we've had some great battles in the past and unfortunately, they were short battles.
Michael Jordan
When Drazen first time arrived to Chicago, in the times of war in Croatia, he approached the game announcer and asked for correction:
I am not Yugoslavian, I am Croatian.
Since then nobody ever called him Yugoslavian in the NBA. I think, that what Drazen did for Croatia is uncountable, priceless and ever lasting.
- his brother Aleksandar said for Croatian Sports newspaper

Bio:
A hero on and off the court in his native homeland of Croatia, Kresimir Cosic's decision to attend Brigham Young University paved the way for international basketball players to come to America to hone their basketball skills at the collegiate level. Cosic, a 6-foot-11 center who was equally effective playing near the basket and on the perimeter, enrolled at BYU in 1970 after leading the former Yugoslavia to an Olympic silver medal in 1968. He is the first foreign player to earn All-America honors. The versatile big man led BYU to the NCAA Tournament Regional Finals and two Western Athletic Conference (WAC) titles in 1971 and 1972. Cosic led the Cougars in scoring (22.3 ppg) and rebounding (13.0 rpg) in his junior year and again in scoring in his senior year (20.2 ppg). In his a three-year collegiate career, Cosic compiled 1,512 points (19.1 ppg) and grabbed the second most rebounds in BYU history (919 rebounds, 11.6 rpg). His combination of shooting skills and aggressive rebounding made him an All-America selection following his junior season and a WAC First Team All-Star in each of his three years.
After his outstanding college career, Cosic rejected several pro offers, and instead returned home to Croatia, where his career continued to catapult. He played in four Olympic Games (1968, 1972, 1976 and 1980) and guided his team to the Gold Medal in 1980. Cosic led the former Yugoslavia to a pair of World Championship gold medals in 1970 and 1978. A seven-time First-Team All European selection, Cosic was a member of the former Yugoslavian team that won three European titles. Following his playing days, Cosic turned his talents to coaching, and led the former Yugoslavian team to a silver medal in the 1988 Olympics in Seoul. A member of the BYU Hall of Fame, Cosic's years of hard work and commitment to his native land were rewarded with the presentation of the Freedom Award. The Award was presented to recognize Cosic's outstanding contributions to the principles of democracy and freedom. In the years following basketball, Cosic worked in the Croatian Embassy in Washington, D.C. On May 25, 1995, after a year-long battle with a form of cancer known as non-Hodgkins lymphoma, Cosic passed away. He was 46.
