    Default R.I.P. Dusan Ivkovic

    Turkish President`s Cup with Efes 2015-16
    Triple Crown with Olympiacos 1996-97,
    Small Triple Crown with Partizan 1978-79

    Kid of Radnicki Belgrade, full time player career he spent there, two years like coach 1982-84, coach of Partizan 1978-80 ,Aris 1980-82 ,SIbenka 1984-87, Vojvodina 1987-90, Paok 1991-93, Panionios 1994-96, Olympiacos 1996-99, Aek 1999-01, Cska 2002-05, Dynamo Moscow 2005-07, Olympiacos 2010-12, Anadolu Efes 2014-16.

    Tonight, Partizan will play against Efes, game planned like honor for ending career of Novica Velickovic. By circumstances, Efes was last team who Ivkovic leaded. Tonight, I m sure will be great opportunity to express respect and honor for one unforgettable person.

    Serbian basketball owes so much to Duda Ivković. Led national team during most difficult and challenging times when we were banned from all competitions during sanctions in the early 90's. He kept that generation together during fallout and organized meaningless tournaments to keep the hope and strengthen relationships between players (when every other team was competing in FIBA tournaments). And indeed, he himself was the definition of basketball in those days and the one who kept Serbian basketball alive during most difficult times. Truly, one of the most sincere and honest fighters for the good of Serbian basketball. There aren't many more like Duda.

    I'm really sorry, serbian friends. We have lost a legend of this sport, who changed it forever and who also gave us one of the best teams in history. R.I.P. Dušan, hvala!

    It was sad to read this news earlier. What an absolute legend as a coach and as a person, who leaves an extraordinary legacy. From reading the tributes from his ex players, it's clear he had a significant impact on them off the court as well.
    My condolences, particularly to our Serbian and Greek members.

    RIP Coach and thank you for the memories.

    RIP to the legend. Struck fear in my heart as a mere spectator thousands of miles away in the States. Can’t imagine what it would’ve been like to do play for him/ref one of his games.
