About Dražen Petrović
Dražen Petrović, (October 22, 1964 – June 7, 1993) was a professional basketball player from Croatia. A shooting guard, he initially achieved success playing professional basketball in Europe in the 1980s before joining the American NBA in 1989. Petrović's life and career were cut short in mid-career in an auto accident in Germany at just twenty-eight. A star on multiple stages, Petrović earned two Silver Medals and one Bronze in Olympic basketball, a Gold and a Bronze in the FIBA World Championship, a Gold and a Bronze in the FIBA European Championship, earned four Euroscar Awards, and was named Mr. Europa in basketball twice. Seeking a bigger arena after his career start in Europe, Petrović joined the National Basketball Association in 1989 as a member of the Portland Trail Blazers. After playing mostly off the bench that year, Petrović experienced a break-out following a trade to the New Jersey Nets, starting and becoming one of the league's best shooting guards. Petrović is considered the crucial part of the vanguard to the present-day mass influx of European players into the NBA. Petrović's #3 was retired by the Nets in 1993 and in 2002, he was posthumously enshrined in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
