Professional career[edit]

MVP on Macedonian Cup Final 2012 with MZT Skopje

While playing with KK Zadar, Gečevski was named to the All-EuroCup First Team in the 2008–09 season,[1] being named the league's best center.[2] He then signed with PAOK in Greece, and played there from 2009 to 2011. In 2011, he returned to Macedonia, and signed with MZT Skopje Aerodrom. In 2014, he joined Rabotnički.[3]

Macedonian national team[edit]

Gečevski was one of the most influential players of the Macedonia national basketball team in the past decade. He played at the 1995 FIBA Europe Under-16 Championship with Macedonia's junior national team. As a member of the senior Macedonian national team, he played at the EuroBasket 1999 and the EuroBasket 2009. He was considered a leader of the team at the EuroBasket 2011 in Lithuania, where he was crucial in the victories of the Macedonian national team against Croatia (78–76) and Greece (72–58), in the group stage. Despite carrying multiple injuries throughout the tournament, he participated until breaking both hands against Georgia. After that incident, he still wanted to play, even with fractures, which was an inspiration for his teammates, in their historic run to the semi-finals.
