2024-2025 stats



Qualified for the EuroBasket 2022, Spain is one of the best nations of modern basketball. In all, it has nineteen medals in the three major international competitions:

  • World Championship: two titles (in 2006 and 2019)
  • Olympic Games: three silver medals (in 1984, 2008 and 2012) and a bronze medal (in 2016)
  • European Championship: three titles (in 2009, 2011 and 2015), six silver medals (in 1935, 1973, 1983, 1999, 2003 and 2007) and four bronze medals (in 1991, 2001, 2013 and 2017).

Crowned world champions at the 2019 World Cup in China after a perfect, undefeated campaign, the Spanish national basketball team failed to confirm their status on the Olympic stage. For the Tokyo Olympic Games, the Spanish came second in their group due to a defeat against Slovenia. This meant that they had to face the American ogre in the quarter-finals. The result was an 81-95 defeat that prevented Spain from fighting for an Olympic medal. Not to mention the fact that this was the last competition for several key players in the Spanish basketball  roster, such as the Gasol brothers and Sergio Rodriguez.

The twelve players who participated in these last Olympic Games with the Spanish national team, led by the Italian coach Sergio Scariolo, are:

Xabier López-Arostegui - Pau Gasol - Rudy Fernández - Sergio Rodríguez - Ricky Rubio - Víctor Claver - Marc Gasol - Willy Hernangómez - Usman Garuba - Alberto Abalde - Álex Abrines - Sergio Llull.

Pau Gasol. Without doubt the most well-known and recognised player of this latest roster. Even the most emblematic of a whole generation. Multi-medal winner for his country, he also has numerous individual distinctions, such as best player (at the 2006 World Cup and Euro 2009), best scorer and selections in the best five of the international competitions in which he participates. This adds even more grandeur to his already impressive NBA career, as he was NBA Champion in 2009 and 2010 with the Los Angeles Lakers. His brother, Marc Gasol, NBA champion in 2019 with the Toronto Raptors, is also one of the best known Spanish basketball players. Just like Ricky Rubio, Rudy Fernandez and Sergio Llull, all of whom have left their mark on the history of Spanish, European and world basketball.
