Marcin Gortat-Poland and Orlando Magic
Anyone who traveled to Poland for EuroBasket 2009 knows that the face of basketball in Poland is Marcin Gortat. Gortat's picture is everywhere in his home country, and for good reason. In 2009 he made a trip to the NBA Finals with the Orlando Magic before returning home to lead the Polish national team to the Qualifying Round of EuroBasket 2009. The 2.13m center averaged 14.3 points and 10.8 rebounds at EuroBasket while contributing 3.8 points and five rebounds per game for the Magic in their run to the NBA Finals.
