Career: Estudiantes Madrid (Spain-ACB, 1998-2004), Real Madrid (Spain-ACB, 2004-06).
The starting center for the Spanish National Team at 2005 EuroBasket due to Pau Gasol's absence, Felipe Reyes will likely have fewer minutes in Japan. But he will be a key factor if Spain hope to succeed.
Reyes is a very intense and tough player, always fighting for rebounds and any loose balls on defense. That's his speciality. He was one of the best rebounder in the ACB League - the only Spanish player among the leaders. Reyes has an excellent instinct for grabbing boards, especially on offensive side of the ball. However, the Real Madrid star is not only an intense player and rebounder. He has developed a number of offensive skills, such as a soft mid-range shooting. And he has improved his free throw percentage and has added new and effective low post moves.
