I have a personal story to share with Drazen. I was a young prospect back then, played in junior team of Cibona Croatian champion, where Drazen used to play. After a summer practice, our couch says: ok guys, you're shooting 3s and the one who wins, stays at an additional practise. We were like, wtf? But I won anyway, I was really good back then. Next thing I know, Drazen walks onto the court, introduces himself and we spent 2 hours in practice. Everything he did, I had to do to. 25 free throws Drazen, 25 free throws me, with Drazen passing me the ball. It was unreal. Oh, and did I mention this was when he was already a huge Nets star and he was in Zagreb on "vacation". Every day he spent in practise. That's how motivated he was. Thanks for this video @Cosgrove, made me cry. Edit: wow guys, I did not expect this... I'm really glad you liked the story . Thanks for all the love

He had an apartment in Hackensack, NJ, during the season and I often had breakfast with him at a local diner. He would always sit at a table away from any TV set because there was a terrible war going on in his Country and he couldn't bear to watch. He was a wonderful man, soft spoken and respectful. After the tragedy in Germany all basketball fans and in particular NJ Nets fans were in shock and, to this day, I still think of him once in a while. He was a great, great player. There was a day when a mass was held in NYC at the Croatian Catholic Church so that fans, fellow teammates and NBA dignitaries could pay their respects. I was fortunate to be at the mass and it was a very stirring moment. Drazen's mother said his favorite piece of music was 'Ave Maria' and a woman sang it beautifully at the mass and believe me when I tell you, there wasn't a dry eye in the house. For the rest of my life whenever I hear that beautiful song I will always think of that woman singing it at the mass in his honor.

You missed his point, he meant "bad" as in VERY GOOD, just like Mike Tyson was called the "baddest man on the planet"! So you wouldn't have missed the joke if you had been a true sports [or basketball] enthusiast. 'nuff said.

He’s got that underdog energy that I love. I’m an underdog in music and always was in sports too. I played basketball and soccer. Have always been good at that and music but no one gives me the chance. That’s why I love guys like him who are also so clearly talented and hardworking but people overlook. Never give up! I’m so glad you got to watch him play over there. If he hadn’t died so soon I would have definitely known him more as I was an avid NBA fan in the 90s. Grew up in Portland. RIP Drazen

A completely wonderful player, incredible shooter. He played in Spain, Real Madrid team. Same as Fernando Martin, they both died in car accidents and we were very sad for it. Petrovic was practically unstoppable in the basketball court.

I'm from his home town of Šibenik, Croatia. And i remember him very well. He was 3 years older than me. And was a national hero already with 18 years. He was a magnet for people,and for girls. He had a beautiful contagious smile, and wonderful curly hair...But he never spent the nights with the girls outside, never drink or whatever young people of his age doing...All he was interested about was basketball. He used to come at 6 in the morning, every morning, before school, put the chairs all over the floor and dribble through them for 2 hours....And shooting from all directions practicing fast release. Then the cleaners would come and at the 8 he would be in his clasroom. And afternoon he would come again and stay on th floor untill midnight. He was just MAD basketball addict. Very polite nice and humble guy outside, but cold stone killer on the floor. Drazen outside, and in the floor, was two completly different persons. He didn't respect even his own brother. Once he had a free throws against his brother team Cibona, in the game that means NOTHING to Dražen, but means EVERYTHING to his brother team. I don't remember what the game was for, but it was important European championship play off game. He was a player of Real Madrid then. It was few last seconds of the game. And Dražen on the free throw line.He was begging Dražen to miss the throws, saying, please, let us pass this, this game means nothing to you. You are already a champions...but we desperately need this game.He was mentioning some big money award too, if they win the game.Dražen was just look at him, gave him one ironic smile and cold as a stone put both throws inside. He just couldn't imagine to loose the game. His brother didn't wanna speak to him for months after that game.

Growing up in Chicago I was a huge NBA fan going back to before Jordan played in the NBA. I got to see Jordan play live and also watched every game on tv. I watched those games that Drazen played against the Bulls and Jordan plus any other games Drazen played in that were broadcast nationally. He was a true superstar and not only the best European player I have ever seen but, simply one of the best NBA players I have ever watched. At the end of the season before he died I remember thinking, wow wait till next year, he will be a marquee player. It’s such a shame that he lost his life so young. The NBA not only lost a great player but a great ambassador to the game. The only other players that I have seen play with the same heart and determination were Jordan and Larry Bird and Kobe. What a huge loss, Rest In Peace.

Dude was a Savant, WELL AND TRUELY ahead of his time, We see what guards were doing in 2018-2019, splitting doubles, running around screens to get open threes, being one of the toughest to guard at the rim, and applied it in an era known as the Big Man era. You can’t take anything away from him.

@Droptop RARII Obviously you don't know the facts about Drazen's death. It wasn't him who was driving, it was his girlfriend. He slept in the right seat because he was tired after the game he played for the Croatian national team. The driver of the truck that caused the accident turned in a semicircle on the highway over 4 lanes. It is strictly forbidden and unexpected for someone to do such idiocy on the highway. Due to the rain, the road was wet and visibility was poor. The tragedy is not the result of Drazen's mistake. If you die in a plane crash as a passenger, it's not your fault that the plane crashed. I had the honor of meeting him and once playing street basketball with him in his hometown of Šibenik when he was already a famous and best player in Europe. Croatia still cries for him every year on June 7 when we remember him. RIP Drazen

R.I.Power Drazen...he played with no fear. He was simple one of the best European players I ever saw play in the NBA. And, his duels against MJ bought the best out of MJ because he used to get under MJ's skin like Dumars and Mitch Richmond. I don't know if he ever said it publicly but you could see MJ has MASSIVE RESPECT for Drazen. He reminded me of a younger Oscar Schmidt from Brazil...extremely talented, in elite condition and fearless on the court. Again, R.I.Power Drazen.

@Order 66 I’d take Petro over Dirk, Sabonis and Luka based off of what he showcased in the NBA. No doubt Arvydis was a great basketball player, but he never got to showcase a lot of his talent to people who follow NBA basketball. I understand defending Arvydis because he was such a weapon overseas in his prime, but he isn’t even in the discussion with Dirk, Petro and Luka. Dirk is a legend and I feel he never gets the respect he deserves amongst competitive power forwards/centers however he was a one trick pony. Petro was just on another level at basketball, superior to Arvydis and Dirk entirely and Luka is the only one who appears to have similar abilities.

Dražen Petrovič was probably the best European Basketball player of all time. I can not stress enough how good this guy was. He was a basketball giant! So sad he passed so soon. What a legend! I'm from Slovenia and we have Luka Dončič now who's walking in his steps but when Dražen was playing with Cibona [his team from Croatia] in the 80s, I watched all their games in the Euro League. They had great duels and legendary finals against Žalgiris and their Sabonis from Lithuania. Sabonis also went to NBA. That was some peak Euro basket at that time. I think at that time Euro basket differed in style more from the U.S. than it does today in a sense that it was harder for Euro players to adapt, but Dražen was all about taking challenges. He was so good! Btw - Croatia in 1992 also had Kukoc and Radja. I think Radja also played in the NBA. Their team back then was certainly #2 in the World at that time. It was no coincidence they ended up in the final, but the dream Team back then was on another level - they should've just went play some intergalactic matches against some Alien basketball team because they were just too strong for anyone here at that time :D :D

I remember him well on the Blazers, I live in Portland and followed the team at the time, it was a difficult situation for him because the Blazers already had Clyde Drexler as the starting SG, and next to Jordan he was the top SG in the NBA at the time. Petrovic could clearly play but he wasn't going to get significant PT on the same team as Clyde the Glide. I was happy for him when he went to NJ and got some real playing time, then proved he was for real in the NBA. The car accident was a shock, he was so young and still had years ahead of him in the NBA. A shame.

Growing up in NJ and going to Nets games, I quickly became a Drazen fan. I remember this 1 game he scored every OT point in a Nets win and on the way out I purchased his jersey...the 1st one I ever owned. I'll never forget listening to the radio while laying in bed and hearing the news of his death when I was 15. Never thought you could be emotionally connected to someone you've never met, but I cried my eyes out that day. You were one of the best basketball players I've ever seen Drazen and I love you for playing hard and never taking it for granted. Thanks for the memories 😢 ❤️

Respect 🔥 The fact that Petrovic came up against Jordan with all he’s got just shows how confident and capable he was and how much he loved the game. Challenging the GOAT and not backing down warrior style, always giving the game his best, pioneering European basketball, mad respect right there. R.I.P. legend 🙏🏻

why would he back down when he was the goat himself? he just played with weaker team mates, that’s all.

@Cabell Perry Wow Jordan cult members are so thin skinned that giving someone else praises is seen as an insult to their god. Like MJ is the only player that warrants praise and adoration. Like everyone should just bow down to Jordan because its blasphemous to do otherwise. Yeah, dont forget your jordan brand product quota this year to support his airness' lavish lifestyle or your loyalty and current membership in the Church of Mike will be in question.

Yeah, he was able to have some success against Jordan. The narrative that he was a threat of any kind to Jordan is preposterous. If MJ played at 100% and Drazen played at 100%, Jordan would win every time.

Awe c’mon dude!! I thought I was over it. Thought I’d moved past all the players the Blazers have completely shackled to the bench, just to be traded to put up big numbers for other teams. Look, I don’t mean to hijack the message here. This is a tragedy. It’s just really hard for Portland fans, seeing yet another player who was so mismanaged that it’s damned near criminal. No I don’t mean that literally…or do I? I don’t even fukn know at this point.

Man... I never had even heard of Drazen. I was both in 87 and I watched almost every minute of the 95-98 seasons and the 01-03 after he came back, but only saw footage of the super oldschool Jordan. But it's crazy to think there was a guy who was like Jordan kryptonite. Him being about the same age as MJ, just imagine if he went to America at like, 20 and played an entire career there. Or had he not died, imagine him being with those nets teams in the late 90s and early 2000s, he woulda been mid 30s and late 30s during those seasons but, unless injured, likely still would have been a threat on the court for those teams.

Wow, Drazen was a fearless badass! I just checked his field goal shooting percentage and it was 51.8% in his best season (also the last one) with a 50.6% for career average!!! For a shooting guard doing his pull-ups and 3pt shots this is fucking insane. For comparison, Michael Jordan's best season field goal percentage was 53.9%, whilst career average was 49.7%. Kobe Bryant's best season had 46.9%, whilst career average was 44.7%. Steph Curry's best season had 50.4%, whilst career average is 47.6%. Wow, Drazen was a supreme shooter!

@Frost Bite dude when he got to Portland he barely played in 2 seasons. In his 2 full seasons he averaged over 20ppg over 50%FG and led the league in 3p% span 1991-1993. In that physical era to adapt that fast is crazy especially for SG position. Guy was special

Petro was high iq and genius they don't call him Mozart for nothing. You can just check his nba games Petro would always play the best in 4th quarter. Ppl don't know that he was fanatic BB was only thing important to him,nothing else that's why he trained like a maniac. He was unique artistic that's why he will be forever remembered

@Jody Vance True but Drazen played in an era that defense was much better and didn't get easy looks... Look at some tapes and see how hard he ran off picks and screens just to get a good look at the basket .. Curry gets a lot of easier shots due to the change in style of play in this era . So hard to compare since the game has changed....

His nickname should've been "The Spartan" or "Tenacious D" This is the kind of dude you want to go to war with. I was a huge NBA fan from the mid 90's through early 2000's, up until the refs became mobbed up, defense was abolished, and the game devolved into a glorified three point contest. I definitely remember hearing the name Drazen Petrovic, but up until this video I knew nothing about him. Now I need to know more. Thanks for making this video.

Jordan was amazing, it's always nice to see an underdog bring out the best in the best players like Jordan. Growing up as a teen in the nineties Australia was awesome. We never saw race, it wasn't talked about anymore. We loved who we loved because of who they were. We were living Martin Luther King's dream. I wish we could go back to those times. I wish our kids could grow up the way we did.

Drazen Petrovic was one of my favorite Blazers of all time. I was sad when Portland traded him to the Nets. But I was also happy knowing that Drazen was going to get the playing time he wanted. When I lived in Germany. I was able to go to Zagreb where Drazen is buried. I left his Portland Trailblazers jersey at his statue outside the Drazen Petrovic Basketball Hall.

As a Croatian myself I can say that back when he was a kid he didn’t have the conditions to play bc the country was poor and after his basketball training he would break into the gym and train ALONE for 4 hours every day. This man loved basketball soo much and since he died no one in Croatia, imo, even in Europe was born ,to this day,with such love and will for basketball. Rest in peace legend❤️🏀🇭🇷

@Vasko Kuzmanov it’s difficult to compare today’s generation of European players to Petrovic. In terms of talent at young age the only one coming close is probably Doncic. But I remember seeing footage of Petro dominating the Yugoslav championship aged 17. He was playing against top European players and at 17 he made them look like amateurs. The difference was far greater than when Doncic played in Spain in his teens. I’m not sentimental and I never liked Petro as a person but as a player he was the greatest international player of all times.

All you need for basketball is a ball and a hoop. Plenty of all stars honed their skill on blacktops...it's not a prohibitively expensive sport to learn or play what does being poor have to do with anything?

I was a teenager when he was an actual demon playing for Cibona. When he arrived at Real Madrid before his NBA career, he was virtually unstoppable. He had not only a lethal fast 3 points shoot but also was super-skilled dribbling and a gifted passer. His offensive awareness and aggression were well above his physical abilities. Sure, he was not the NBA athleticism stereotype but damn, he did not need to be athletic to dominate the game! Like other IQ basketball freaks like Stockton, he could push his game further than you could expect. Let's put it simply: he was a European version of Steph Curry. Nothin lesser.

Imagine if Drazen would have been on a team like the Celtics or Bulls in that era. Loved that he wasn't cocky but was just confident enough to have zero fear.

@Glenn Killer both were amazing but I think Kukoč worked better for Bulls than Dražen ever could. Dražen loved the ball and loved to score, in Bulls he'd never have been a scorer cause there were MJ and Pip. Kukoč was better all-rounder and Kukoč sacrificed a lot of what he was capable of to give Bulls what they needed from him (for example he was well known for his mobility as such a tall player but when he joined Bulls he sacrificed that and got 20 pounds cause that's what Bulls wanted from him). They were different players on different positions, Dražen was a killer, Kukoč all-rounder so I wouldn't put that trade on the table

He was cocky to the point of nastiness back in the Europe years. He was hated by many players and fans. He didn't started his career in the NBA. I live in Spain (he played in Real Madrid for almost two seasons) and not many of his former team mates get along fine with him.
