Sergio Llull: The Michael Jordan of Madrid Keeps Breaking Records

2 min read

When you hear Real Madrid Baloncesto or Real Madrid Basket, you think of players like Luka Dončić, Rudy Fernández, and Facundo Campazzo. Why is that? Well, what these players share in common is that they used to play in the NBA (National Basketball Association), apart from Dončić of course, as he’s currently active in the league. But have you heard of Sergio Llull?

Llull, the 6 foot 3 point guard from Menorca, Spain, has been making history this past year with Real Madrid, breaking team and competition records left and right!

Dating back to 2023, the Spanish native broke Real Madrid’s scoring record during an ACB League playoff game against UCAM Murcia, becoming the top scorer in the history of the Madrid-based team with 6,019 points. In that same game, Llull also reached a total of 900 career triples. Now, the guard has expanded his points total to 8,529 after Real’s Cup win against FC Barcelona earlier today.

Fast forwarding to 2024, the Spanish guard became the player with the most games played as a Los Blancos’ player after reaching the 1,047 mark during Real’s matchup against Bayern Munich on January 9.

Since then, Llull has continued to add to his appearance record, tallying up a total of 1,053 games played till date.

Llull has also broken the record for the most three-pointers in the Copa del Rey with 65 three-pointers after netting three shots from behind the arc during the team’s victory against UCAM Murcia on February 15, surpassing Juan Carlos Navarro. Notably, the Real Madrid captain also did it in fewer games than the former Barcelona star with Llull only playing 38 games to break the record while Navarro took 44.

Not only that, but Llull continues to lead the Copa del Rey tournament with the most trophies in the competition with seven while ranking second for the most MVPs with two.

Nevertheless, there are still a lot more games to be played before the end of this season, and still more oohs and aahs the 36-year-old could bring us, as well as helping Los Blancos win the Endesa League and EuroLeague.
