Career: Badalona (Spain-ACB, 2001-2006).
A star in the making. At 21, Rudy Fernández has already played at the 2004 Olympic Games and the 2005 EuroBasket. And he is ready to make a major contribution at the 2006 World Championships.
Fernández is a very complete player, who combines great scoring abilities with a team spirit that leads him to great defensive effort (excels in steals), outstanding rebounding skills for a shooting guard and point guard-like passing and court vision. When it comes to scoring, Fernández is a reliable long range shooter and is a great driver due to his ball handling and athleticism, which make him virtually unstoppable in fast breaks and the star of spectacular plays. This season he averaged almost one alley oop dunk per game.
