He won the FIBA Saporta Cup as a player and 22 titles as coach

Pablo Laso was part of Real Madrid both as a player and a coach. Between 1995 and 1998, he conducted our team as point guard, playing 97 games and winning the FIBA Saporta Cup as a madridista in 1997. Following an impressive spell as a player which spanned 19 seasons in the ACB League and saw him become all-time leader in assists and recoveries, Laso moved into his career as a coach.
In 2011, he took up his post in the Real Madrid dugout and set about taking the team back to the pinnacle of European basketball. Over the course of his 11 seasons in charge, he oversaw more games than any other coach in the club's history (860), also clinching the most wins (659). Laso lifted an incredible 22 titles in that time: 2 European Cups, 1 Intercontinental Cup, 6 League titles, 6 Copas del Rey and 7 Super Cups, equalling Lolo Sainz as the second-most decorated coach the club has ever had, behind only Pedro Ferrándiz (27).
There was not a single year in which Laso failed to win a title with Real Madrid, notably taking a five-trophy haul between 2014 and 2015 (Euroleague, Intercontinental Cup, League, Copa del Rey and Super Cup). As well as winning La Novena in Madrid (2015) and La Décima in Belgrade (2018), he made the Euroleague final on three further occasions. With him at the helm, Madrid were involved in 33 of a possible 44 finals. His honours list also includes two Euroleague Best Coach Awards (2015 and 2018) and seven AEEB Coach of the Year accolades (2013, 2015, 2016, 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021).
