NBA “Toni Kukoč, a basketball legend ahead of time”.
The NBA Secretariat congratulated Toni Kukoč (53, Croatia) on his dedication to the Hall of Fame on its official website on the 10th (Korea Standard Time), saying, “It was the first stretch power forward/center in U.S. professional basketball.”
Following the 2017 FIBA Hall of Fame, Coach Coo entered the Naismith Hall of Fame led by the U.S. and Canada this year. These days, NBA also showed off a variety of skills, including ball handling, passes, and shooting in all areas of the court with a height of 208cm barefoot and 211cm when wearing shoes.
He helped Michael Jordan (58), the emperor of basketball, and shared his second and third consecutive U.S. professional basketball title between 1996 and 1998. It is one of the key bench resources that cannot be left out when discussing the history of winning the NBA, including the 1996 Six-Man Award.
Coach Cooch has gained enough experience to be called a “living legend” in 1985-1993 when he played in Europe, except during the 1993-2006 NBA days. He won the World Cup (19910) European Championship (1991) MVP as a national team member and the Euro League (1991, 1991 and 1993) as a professional player.
In 1991, at the age of 23 at the time, he was named one of the 50 great players selected by the International Basketball Federation. NBA’s official website also said, “Coach Coo was already one of the best in the world when he was in Europe. “Even after entering the U.S., he succeeded as a versatile European tall player before Dirk Nowitzky (43, Germany).”파워볼사이트
Nowitzky (213cm) became the best player in European history by winning the regular season (2007) and final (2011) MVP as a member of the Dallas Mavericks in the 1998-2019 U.S. professional basketball league. The NBA official website said, “Coach Kucho was better than Novitzky in maintaining ball ownership, passing, and moving forward alone.”
