Fernando Martín Espina

Fernanado Marín Espina was a basketball player who was the first Spanish basketball player that played in the NBA. He wasborn on 25th March in 1962 in Madrid and he died on 3rd December in 1989, in a car accident, at  the age of 27. His brother Antonio Martín Espina was also a basketball player. He played in Estudiantes de Madrid, Real Madrid, Portland Trail Blazers and in Spanish national team, where he won a lot of prizes. 

The most famous prizes he has won were: his figure is recognized in the FIBA Hall of Fame, Spanish First and Second European to play in the NBA, the Real Madrid Basketball dorsal retired number 10 in his honor, belongs to the 50 Greatest Contributors FIBA Basketball.

 In my opinion, he must have been a very good player if he won all these enormous prizes. Unfortunately, he died in a terrible accident.
