Available in:

Jorge Garbajosa Chaparro, Jr. (born December 19, 1977), is a Spanish former professional basketball player and the current president of the Spanish Basketball Federation. Standing at 2.07 m (6 ft 9 in), he played both power forward and small forward. He was an All-Euroleague first team selection in 2003, and an All-Euroleague second team selection in 2006 playing for Unicaja. During his stint in the NBA, he was named to the NBA All-Rookie First Team in 2007. A serious injury the following season cut his NBA career short, and he never truly recovered until his retirement.

As a member of the Spanish national team, Garbajosa won a bronze medal at the EuroBasket 2001 and two silver medals at the EuroBasket 2003 and 2007. His biggest accomplishment however, was the gold medal at the 2006 World Cup, where his stellar play earned him All-tournament honors. In 2006, Garbajosa was named Mr Europa Player of the year by Italian weekly magazine SuperBasket.
