"Drazen Petrovic Basket" is a game based on the great European basketball player (who dramatically died in a car accident four years later), which develops a basketball competition in the elimination mode, it is, you will start in 1/8 final and according to your results you will continue on the fight for the title or not. An interesting point of the game is that all the teams are composed by five players: one guard, two forwards and two centers, everyone with the typical characteristics of his position and with the possibility of being controlled at every moment. There are also personal faults, so if anyone of your players gets the fifth one he will be expelled of the court, but that's not all, the game also allows you to request time outs, two for each game period, giving you the possibility of changing the tactics, seeing the game stats, etc.
Dražen Petrović was a Croatian basketball player who played in a few European clubs (including a season with Real Madrid) before moving to the USA and start a second career in the NBA. There he played for the Portland Trail Blazers and the New Jersey Nets, before returning to Europe and dying in a traffic accident in Germany in 1993.
The reason behind the game carrying his name is probably his popularity in Spain at the time. During his only season in Real Madrid the team won a Copa del Rey and the 1988–89 FIBA European Cup Winner's Cup.
