Tal Brody is Israel's first modern-day sports hero. A University of Illinois All American in 1965 and member of the ZBT fraternity, Brody joined the Maccabi-Tel Aviv team after leading his United States team to a gold medal in the 1965 Maccabiah Games.
Brody led his 1977 Maccabi team to the European Cup Championship. ''The little team that could" won the tournament of 23 national champion teams by defeating Italy's best  78-77, to capture the European title.
At the University of Illinois, the 6'1 1/2" guard won All Academic honors in 1965. That year, he was the thirteenth pick in the NBA draft, but opted to return to Illinois for his masters degree.
In 1968, Brody was drafted into the US. Army, where he served primarily on the All-Army and All-Armed Forces basketball teams. His U.S.  Armed Forces team finished third in the World Championships in Belgrade. In 1979, Brody was awarded the Israel Prize, the country's highest civilian honor.
In Israel, he is a revered national hero,  icon, and legend - a superstar akin to Michael Jordan in the U.S.  As Israel's first modern-day sports hero, he is a symbol of the young country's achievements.
