Gregor Fucka Basketball Career

Born: Aug.7, 1971 in Slovenia, his parents still live in Slovenia
If you would like to see the player, who is never happy of his performance, here you got one. However Fucka is doing a great job on the court. Extremely talented. Can shot 3-pointer, as for the player his size is not very common. A littl too skinny for the center, but perfectly fitting as the power forward. NBA potential. ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE MATCH-UP FOR ANY OPPOSING TEAM. EXCELLENT POST-UP PLAYER, WHO MAY BE THE MOST AMBIDEXTROUS PLAYER IN THE WORLD. GOOD SHOT-BLOCKER. CAN DEFEND SOME 5'S AND BOTH FORWARD POSITIONS. ALWAYS IMPROVING. THE ONE EUROPEAN PLAYER TODAY, WHO COULD CONTRIBUTE IN MAKING A GOOD NBA TEAM BETTER. DECIDED TO REMAIN IN ITALY AS HE REFUSED THE CLIPPERS OFFER.

Born: March 30, 1971 in London (United Kingdom)
True winner. Great heart for the game. A little too small for the shooting guard to compete in NBA. Can run the floor, likes fast breaks, and can easily dunk over taller opponents. Sometimes shoot even too much, but can be ustopable if he has good evening.

When Cesare Rubini was elected into the Basketball Hall of Fame, bold headlines of his achievement blazed across newspapers in his native Italy. It was a huge announcement for the native son who had given five decades of his life to the establishment, structure, refinement and advancement of Italian basketball. The man who put Italian basketball on the international map was finally being recognized for the greatness his supporters had known for years. Simply stated, Cesare Rubini has been synonymous with Italian basketball-the two are inseparable.
As both a player and a coach from 1941 to 1978, Rubini methodically built the Simmenthal Club of Milan and Italian basketball from scratch and tirelessly made Italian basketball an international contender. During his tenure, Rubini won 15 Italian Basketball Championships, five as a player (1950-55) and 10 as a coach. During his 31 years as head coach of the Simmenthal Club of Milan, Rubini compiled an impressive 322-28 record. A graduate of the University of Trieste, Rubini has been a member of FIBA's Central Board since 1984, and has served as president of the World Association of Basketball Coaches since 1979.
