DDuring the last gala of legends who entered the NBA Hall of Fame, the Endesa League and had a special role thanks to George Karl.

The former basketball coach directed Real Madrid twice throughout his career, the 89-90 season and the 91-92 season, two years that earned him during his entrance speech some precious and emotional words towards the club and players who were brought in, such as Fernando Martn, who died during his stay on the Madrid bench, and two who accompanied him at the act, Quique Villalobos and José Luis Llorente.

“Four years passed until I received my maximum opportunity, those four years saw me train at the CBA and at Real Madrid. My time at Real Madrid was one of the most important in my life. I grew in many ways at Real Madrid “The tragedy of losing a very special player when I was at Real Madrid. We lost Fernando Martn in a traffic accident. Those three days were the worst days, those three tremendous days were the most emotional and moving of my life. I am very grateful that two members of that team are with me today, José Luis Llorente and Quique Villalobos”, were the words that George Karl dedicated to Real Madrid.
