Marcus Williams leads Serbia’s Crvena Zvezda

II recently had the opportunity to travel to Europe. Serbia, former Yugoslavia, is home to some of the best basketball talent in the world. They have more medals than any other country in basketball. While visiting the capital of Serbia, Belgrade, I checked out the roster, only to find out Marcus Williams was a starter for Crvena Zvezda (Red Star).

Zvezda is one of the top teams in Europe, also competing in the Euro League. I got an opportunity to not only check out my first Euro League team, but also sit court side as a photographer and take pictures! The atmosphere was nothing like any game I have experienced here in the USA. The entire crowd was into the game – cheering, screaming and singing songs. I had a great time experiencing basketball in a new culture and I’m looking forward to coming back!
