Basketball was one of the most popular and one of the most succesful sports in Yugoslavia. Yugoslavia's most talented generation of basketball players just started winning European and World Championships when they got stopped by the breakup of Yugoslavia through series of war conflicts in the 1990s. Yesteday's teammates became fierce rivals and that's exactly why this thesis tries to research interrelations between politics and basketball and especially researching the influence political events had on players in the period from 1990 to 1995. This research was based mainly on the analysis of the sports media from that time but also other sources like TV shows, documentaries, replays of the games etc. I used lots of relevant literature as well, mainly historian and sociological works. It's also worth noting that even though basketball is very popular in this area and the events mentioned here had a big influence on the society as a whole, this subject is still not researched well enough.
