For Old Time’s Sake: Toni Kukoc
Straight outta Split
Toni Kukoc was one of the most important, yet often overlooked, pieces to the Chicago Bulls Dynasty in the late 90s. It may be a stretch to call him Dirk before Dirk but he had one of the sweetest strokes in the game, came over from Europe, stood at 6’11″, and could play all 5 positions. Kukoc was also a fantastic passer and shot a very solid 44.7% from the field for his career. Kukoc was a 9x European Player of the Year, NBA 6th Man of the Year in ’96, and a 3x NBA Champion.
