Early life and career

Carlos Lisboa SLB Glorioso Basquetebol Carlos Lisboa

Born in Praia, Cape Verde, from a Jewish origin metropolitan Portuguese father and a German origin mother (Fernanda Lisboa Santos), Lisboa spent his youth in Mozambique, coming to Portugal in 1974. He started his basketball career in the then Portuguese colony, at the youth levels of Sporting Lourenço Marques. After his coming to Portugal, he played at the youth categories of Sporting CP, entering the first team, still at the youth level. He would be a leading name for Sporting, from 1975 to 1982, where he won three National Championships and two Cups of Portugal. He played at C.A. Queluz for the two following seasons, winning a Championship and a Cup of Portugal.

Lisboa however would achieve the greatest success of his long career as a Benfica player, playing there from 1984 to 1996, ending it aged 38 years old. During this period, he went to win ten National Championship titles and five Cups of Portugal, 4 League Cups and 3 Portuguese Super Cup.

He played 46 times for Portugal, from 1977 to 1992, but unfortunately never had the chance to show his talent at a major competition. The highest point of his career at this level was his presence at the Pre-Olympic Tournament in 1992, where Portugal finished 5th of six national teams.

After ending his player career, he became a coach, having coached Estoril Praia, Benfica (twice), and Aveiro Basket.
