Career: Málaga (Spain-ACB, 1997-2006).
"Berni selección" (Berni to the National Team) has been one of the most popular chants in Málaga this season. The fans love their long time captain, the soul of one of the top teams in Europe right now, and claim he should be at Japan. Rodríguez had a high-level performance in the ACB and the Euroleague this season, in his best year so far.
Berni is labelled as a shooting guard but posses a playmaker's brain. His best skill is how he understands the game, always making the right decisions. A great passer and game reader, he is also a team player who doesn't shoot a lot but plays hard in defence, matching up with both guard positions and the small forward spot. It doesn't matter, he is always ready to become the nightmare for the opposing team's star.
