Drazen Petrovic 1964-1993
Croatian sportsman of the
We rarely have an opportunity to experience
immense joy and pride like we had in that summer of 1992.
Who can forget that August day when, a few second before siren sound, the captain took
responsibility, aware that it was the only way to lead us to the finals. Croatia stood
still while he was scoring both free throws and took us into Olimpic history. The final
match against Dream Team was a dessert that we all watched with pleasure and pride.
We were expecting that it was just the beginning of the success of Croatian basketball.
But a tragic incident on German highway not only took away our team leader and locomotive,
but it also took away a great sportsman and human being. After Drazen nothing was the same
anymore. His character is still in hearts of many people, and his persistence, devotion
and honesty have already entered into the legend. At the end of 1999 he was selected as
the Croatian sportsman of the 20th century. As the song dedicated to Drazen says...
Zivot leti, kapetane, mladost bizi, a na srcu frizi.
Dok nas s naseg kampanela i sad bude od Boga batude
Svoju su dobrotu ostavija svima
Nekoj novoj dici igru s Baldekina.

in the world":
"The trouble with me is that every match I play against five
opponents: umpire, crowd, ball boys, court, and myself."
|In Europe they called him The Pink Panther, his
lucidity and intelligence fascinated everyone. He gave three European team basketball
titles to his hometown. He won two Olympic silvers, a World Champion title and many awards
in Croatia and Europe. In 1992 he was ready to move to the homeland of basketball. He
joined the Chicago Bulls, he got the nickname The Croatian Sensation, and he
reached the top, he won three NBA rings in a row. The new NBA season is his opportunity to
play with the best players at the All-Star game. He continued his career in NBA as a
Philadelphia 76's and Atlanta Hawks player, and now he is playing for
Milwaukee Bucks. While he was still playing in
Europe, an anonymous American who was in Europe noticed him. A few years after that, when
he returned home at Bronx, he was telling his friends about a man he saw in Europe, a man
that was going to play in Chicago later. He had only one thing to say and that was… "He
plays like a brother". Is there a better compliment...

been the symbol of Split and Dalmatia.
Kada bi se, nakon teska dana, motike
spremile u konobe ili izvadile mrize iz mora, prijatelji bi se sastali u konobi ili pored
mora i pjesma bi potekla. Upravo ta pjesma predstavlja cijelu pisanu povijest. Koliko je
zapravo stara prva klapa u Hrvata? Stara je koliko je staro prvo prijateljstvo i srodne
duse iz cijih je srca potekla pjesma...
