Petrovic Memorial Opens in Croatia

Drazen Petrovic's Net uniform is among momentos preserved in a new memorial honoring the Croatian hoops pioneer in Zagreb. The memorial, financed in part by the Croatian government, opened Wednesday, the 13th anniversary of his death in an auto accident on Germany's autobahn. He's a national hero in the Balkan nation. Zoran Planinic who plays for Croatia's National Team, wears No. 10 on the Nets to honor Petrovic, who wore that number in Europe.
