The Brooklyn Nets wish to express our condolences on the passing of legendary Russian basketball player Sergey Belov. The first international player ever to be inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, Belov’s contributions to the game was unparalleled. As a player, he led the Russian National team to four European and two World Championships. He won a gold medal and three bronzes for his national team at the Olympics. He continued his winning ways as coach of two Russian teams and head coach of the Russian men’s national team, winning silver medals at two World Championships. He is considered by many to be the best international player to ever grace the game, and he will be missed.
