TONI KUKOC, HALL-OF-FAMER

When we sat down for a conversation with Toni Kukoc and Dino Radja as part of our Ćevape & Fries campaign for the BSTN x adidas Forum earlier this year, we didn’t care that technically – read: on paper – only Dino was a Hall of Famer. We couldn’t care less. In our book, so was Toni. And we told him just that. To us, they both represent basketball royalty.

And apparently, the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame agrees, sending Toni Kukoc to Springfield, Massachusetts as part of the 2021 HoF Class. So this September, the three-time NBA Champion, five-time national champion will join Dino Radja (Class of 2018), his running mate from the iconic European Champions Cup-winning Yugoplastika teams, in the Basketball Hall of Fame!

If you haven’t already, we highly encourage you to check out our conversation with the two legends that covers everything from their Yugoplastika championship runs to their time in the NBA as well as the US and the European basketball cultures and their unifying love for the game.
