By stepping on court against Valencia Basket tonight, Felipe Reyes became just the second player to reach 300 games in Turkish Airlines EuroLeague history.
Reyes, age 36, is also the competition's all-time best rebounder, pulling down 1,645 in those 300 games. He started his EuroLeague career with Adecco Estudiantes, taking part in 12 games as a teenager in the competition's original 2000-01 season. Reyes played his 288th EuroLeague game with Real Madrid, where he totals 14 EuroLeague campaigns. Reyes has helped Madrid reach five EuroLeague Final Fours – in 2011, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2017 – lifting the trophy as team captain in 2015. That season, Reyes was named to the 2014-15 All-EuroLeague First Team.
Reyes is a living legend in the competition. Other than leading the all-time rebounds standing, he ranks fifth in scoring 2,717, second in two-point shots made 868, third in fouls drawn 1,175 and second in free throws made 873.
Juan Carlos Navarro was the first player to reach 300 games in the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague and is set to play in his 327th showdown tomorrow.
