Carroll, among the best shooters ever
The North American shooting guard has played nine seasons with Real Madrid, in which he has won two Euroleagues (2015 and 2018). He was one of the stand out performers in the final won against Olympiacos (16 points). In addition, he led the competition last season in percentage of success in free throws (96%) and has one of the highest three pointers in history (42.4%).
Reyes, the record-breaking man
