"Hoops Crazy!" Top 5 Page for this destination Dubrovnik Sports & Outdoors Tip by acemj
Dubrovnik Sports & Outdoors: 8 reviews and 9 photos
Basketball is a popular sport in Croatia and the country's national team has had a lot of success on the international level. Most notably, at the Barcelona Olympics in 1992 they won the silver medal losing only to the greatest team of all-time, the USA's Dream Team featuring Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson and Larry Bird. Some of the best Croatian-born players include Toni Kukoc, Dino Radja and the late, great Drazen Petrovic. Drazen died in a car accident in 1993, but I remember him as a great player for the New Jersey Nets and one of the best pure shooters I've ever seen.
I took this picture at the port in front of the Old Town. Maybe the reason Croatian players are such good shooters is the placement of the hoops. If you missed a shot long on this hoop, the ball would end up floating in the Adriatic!
