After playing half a season in the NBA in 2011-12, Rudy was wildly successful in his return to Europe, guiding Real Madrid to their first Euroleague final since 1995 - making the All-Euroleague First Team - and the club's first ACB crown since 2007. The 28-year-old is still at the top of his game, finding a number of ways to help his team win games - and titles. Fernandez can beat his defender to the basket or shoot over them, though his long range shooting is streaky at times. He remains an absolute pest defensively, with the trait of getting under his opponents' skin with his tight - and excellent - defence. Throughout his career, Fernandez has proven that he is a big game player, not one to shy away from the spotlight but shine in it.
