Con the debut this season of Ramón Vilà (Casademont Zaragoza), Alejandro Bellver (Valencia Basket), José David Gómez and Pablo Marín (Coosur Real Betis), Adrián del Cerro and Miguel Serrano (Gran Canaria), 100 players have made their debut in the Endesa League after passing through the Endesa Mini Cup, although the number of dreams fulfilled rises to 101 from the hand of Eli John Ndiaye who, in the absence of debuting in the Endesa League, played the Endesa Super Cup with Real Madrid.

The best of Luka Doncic in the Minicopa

In addition, mention should be made of the special case of Santi Aldama, which debuted this year in the NBA. All of them are the best example for the new batch of players who, from December 6 to 8, will play the preview of the Endesa Mini Cup in Valencia.

Ricky Rubio it was the first, in that Seville edition, of a list full of names. Just a year and a half later, Aíto García Reneses saw something special in which he was MVP of the 2004 Minicopa and made him debut with Joventut. After being MVP of the last World Cup, Ricky continues his professional path in the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The best of Luka Doncic in the Mini Cup

Other examples of players who have reached the US competition are the homegrown players of Real Madrid Usman Garuba (Houston Rockets) and Luka Doncic (Dallas Mavericks) or Domantas Sabonis who was trained in Unicaja and is now a key player in the Indiana Pacers.
