Juan Carlos Navarro Feijoo (born June 13, 1980, in Sant Feliu de Llobregat, Barcelona), nicknamed "La Bomba" (The Bomb), is a Spanish professional basketball player. The 1.92 m (6 ft 3 ¾ in) and 79 kg (175 lb.) point guard-shooting guard currently plays with FC Barcelona of the Euroleague.

Navarro started playing for FC Barcelona when he was a teenager, making his Spanish league debut on November 23, 1997, at the age of 17. That year he was selected to attend the Nike Hoop Summit, but he finally stayed in Europe playing for the Barcelona pro team. That was also the reason why he was not on the Spanish national team that won the AST tournament in Mannheim in 1998.

With the acquisitions of Dejan Bodiroga and Gregor Fucka in 2003, FC Barcelona won all the competitions they played in that year. It was a great year for the team. It was the first time the club won the Euroleague. By winning the Spanish ACB League, the Spanish King's Cup, and the Euroleague 2002-03 all in the same year, Barcelona won the coveted Triple Crown championship that year.
