A silent hero for the Serbian national team, Stefan Markovic has been representing his country at major competitions since 2007. Alongside Milos Teodosic he is in charge of organising all attacking plays, but perhaps the real trademark of his career has been his defence. Enormous energy, aggression and the ability to anticipate opponents' moves make him one of the top defensive players in Europe. With those skills, he has always been popular among the major clubs in Europe, as witnessed in recent seasons. Having left Serbia in 2010 he has since played for Benetton Treviso, Valencia Basket, Banvit and Unicaja Malaga.
