Qualification in 1991-92 season European competitionsEdit

All-Star GameEdit

The season saw the first ever Yugoslav Basketball League All-Star Game that took place in Sarajevo's Skenderija Hall on Tuesday, 7 May 1991 after the league playoffs ended. The event was not organized by the Yugoslav Basketball Federation (KSJ), but rather as an exhibition showcase put together by the host club KK Bosna and Sarajevo-based Večernje novine daily newspaper.[3]

Due to not being sanctioned by the KSJ and FIBA, the organizers decided to time the game in accordance with the NBA rules: four quarters of twelve minutes each rather than the then FIBA customary two halves of twenty minutes each. Divided among the arbitrarily created Red team coached by Duško Vujošević and the White team coached by Željko Pavličević, the 1990-91 Yugoslav League twenty-four best players contested a game that ended 125-114 for the White team.[3]

The Reds (Crveni) consisted of: 4. Željko Obradović, 5. Zdravko Radulović, 6. Velimir Perasović, 7. Jure Zdovc, 8. Radisav Ćurčić, 9. Danko Cvjetićanin, 10. Mario Primorac, 11. Samir Avdić, 12. Andro Knego, 13. Zoran Savić, 14. Žarko Paspalj, and Ivica Marić.

The Whites (Bijeli) consisted of: 4. Aleksandar Đorđević, 5. Predrag Danilović, 6. Zoran Sretenović, 7. Toni Kukoč, 8. Zoran Čutura, 9. Sejo Bukva, 10. Zoran Jovanović, 11. Miroslav Pecarski, 12. Saša Radunović, 13. Arijan Komazec, Žan Tabak, and 15. Ivo Nakić.[3]

In addition to the All-Star game, a three-point shootout competition and a dunk contest were held during the game's halftime.

3-point shootoutEdit

Total of 19 players signed up for the shootout that consisted of 25 shots from five different positions in 60 seconds — five racks of five balls each — with each regular ball made worth one point and the last ball in each rack (moneyball) worth two points. In the preliminary qualification, the best five were chosen for the final that took place during the All-Star Game halftime.

The 3-point shootout finalists were:

The final's first elimination stage was played in two rounds with each player's best score taken for classification. The two best scores posted were Komazec's and Cvjetićanin's — Komazec had 25 points in his second round while Cvjetićanin had 20 points in his first.

The two thus went head-to-head for the title in an additional two rounds. In the first additional round, Cvjetićanin had 19 points while Komazec had 14. In the second additional round, Cvjetićanin posted 23 points while Komazec also had 23.

Komazec won due to the better first additional round. In addition to the trophy, he received a money prize of YUD30,000.

Dunk contestEdit

Four players made the final:

Five judges for the dunk competition were: Žarko Varajić, Mirza Delibašić, Branko Macura, Nedjeljko "Mišo" Ostarčević, and Vinko Jelovac.

In the first round, Avdić's dunk earned 41 points, Kukoč's 48, Bacalja's 44, and Pecarski's 43. In the second round, Avdić had 46 points, Kukoč 46, Bacalja 50 (behind the back dunk on the second try), and Pecarski 45. In the third round, Avdić had 46 points, Kukoč 50 (one-handed dunk from the free-throw line), Bacalja 50 (behind the back dunk after a bounce), and Pecarski 46.

Kukoč and Bacalja made the two-man final. In the first round, Kukoč had 47 while Bacalja also had 47. In the second round, Kukoč had 50 (dunked with two balls) while Bacalja had 48. In the third round, Kukoč had 50 (another one-handed dunk from the free-throw line) while Bacalja had 47.
