Felipe, record man: player with the most minutes in the Cup

The great captain of Real Madrid beats Juan Carlos Navarro in the quarterfinals against Valencia Basket with 977 minutes per 973.


Felipe Reyes became in the quarterfinals against Valencia Basket the player who has played the most minutes in the Copa del Rey. The Real Madrid center came out in the first quarter and played 6:40, an amount that allows him to surpass Juan Carlos Navarro in the historical ranking: 977 minutes for the 973 minutes of the Barça legend.

Reyes, 40, is not having a big role this season. In Liga Endesa, he averages only 6 minutes in the nine games in which he has taken to the pitch. In the Euroleague, the numbers are even lower: his 2:26 against Zalgiris are his only participation in the top continental competition.

Multiple caps

It is not the first record that Reyes surpasses in the Cup. The great captain of Madrid is a historical leader in rebounds with 266 and in steals with 47. Also in valuation (547), games (50), victories (37) and, of course , in titles: with 7 he is the most successful player in the Cup, closely followed by Rudy Fernández, Sergio Llull and Jaycee Carroll, all three with six titles.

"I am very happy, but above all for the victory, because we really wanted to start the Cup. The record is important to me, because I surpass a great like Juan Carlos Navarro, but my goal is another: to win titles and hopefully that this Copa del Rey ends just as well as the previous one, "said Reyes.
