Traditionally at the end of each year Eurobasket announces the European awards for the last year.

It's the 12th such ranking prepared by Eurobasket.com staff. Eurobasket has a network of almost 300 correspondents, while most of them are located in Europe and participated in preparing the ranking below.

We have the policy of not involving the fans as it may influence the final ranking and instead of that we rely on the opinions of experts.

The votes were made in two categories: All-Europe and All-Europeans.

All-Europe ranking applies to the players, who played in European leagues in last (12-13) and this (13-14) season, so it may apply also to non-European players, who played as imports in Europe.

All-Europeans category applies only to Europeans, but also these, who played overseas (mostly in NBA).

The Player of the Year award went to Vassilis Spanoulis (193-SG-82) of Olympiakos Pireus. Like in previous year Spanoulis and his team conquer the Europe and won Euroleague title for the second time in the row. Spanoulis scored 22 points against Real Madrid in Euroleague final and that gave him the MVP award of 2012/2013 Euroleague season. That is his third MVP award in Euroleague. Olympiakos won the game 100:88 after an amazing comeback.

Vassilis Spanoulis is also the Best Point Guard of the Year. 30-year old Greek guard can play on both point and shooting guard, but his main spot is usually point guard as he can pass the ball well to his teammates.

Shooting Guard of the year is Bojan Bogdanovic (203-SF-89) from Fenerbahce Ulker. He proved that he is the player for big teams because he has been playing great in three previous season. In October this year he re-signed for Fenerbahce Ulker after short time spent in Brooklyn Nets and he is the main factor in Zeljko Obradovic team. In season 2013/14 he led his team in 9-1 in Euroleague and also won the Turkish Cup and Supercup. Bojan Bogdanovic also was the main player for Croatian National Team at Eurobasket in Slovenia this year where he avarged 17.5 points per game and led his national team to the semifinals.

Award for the best Small Forward of the Year goes to Rudy Fernandez (198-SF-85) from Real Madrid. Another amazing year for superstar from Spain. He won ACB League with his team, played in Euroleague final and also won the Supercup of Spain (he was the MVP). With his national team he won Bronze medal at Eurobasket in Slovenia in 2013.

Nikola Mirotic (207-F/C-91) of Real Madrid was named the best Power Forward of the Year and also All-Europe 1st Team. He had an amazing year at Real Madrid like his teammate Rudy Fernandez. The Spanish team is still undefeated in 13/14 season as they are now 25-0 in all competition.

Again, like in previous year, award for the best Center of the Year goes to Nenad Krstic (212-C-83), big man from CSKA Moscow. Last year his team made it to the Euroleague's Final4 and won PBL and VTB league.

This year All-Europe 2nd Team includes Dimitris Diamantidis (196-PG-80) from Panathinaikos Athens, Italian Daniel Hackett (199-G-87), Slovenian forward Bostjan Nachbar (207-PF-80), Lithuanian star Linas Kleiza (203-PF-85) and big man from FC Regal Barcelona - Ante Tomic (217-C-87).

This year Coach of the Year award goes to Greek coach Giorgos Bartzokas who led Olympiacos to the title in Euroleague last season.

Tony Parker (6'2''-PG-82), the superstar from San Antonio, was named All-Europeans Player of the Year 2013. Obviously he received also the award for the best Point Guard of the Year. Tony Parker led his national team to the top of the Europe as French National Team won Gold medal at Eurobasket in Slovenia. Tony Parker was unanimously named MVP of the tournament

Shooting Guard of the year for All-Europeans Awards 2013 is again Vassilis Spanoulis.

This year our correspondents selected Nicolas Batum (6'8''-SF-88) as the Small Forward of the Year. Nicolas was one of the main contributors for French National Team at Eurobasket in Slovenia averaging impressive 11.6ppg, 5.1rpg, 2.3apg, 1.0spg and 1.1bpg. He is also one of the leaders of Portland Trail Blazers who play very well in this season.

At Power Forward position we have Dirk Nowitzki (7'0''-F-78) from the Dallas Mavericks. German legend decided not to participate in European Championships this year, but he was still the best player on his position.

The best Center position goes to the younger of Gasol brothers - Marc Gasol (7'1''-C-85). Spanish big man is curently considered as the top center in the NBA with great court vision as for his size. Moreover, he was named All-NBA Defensive Player of the Year and All-NBA 2nd Team in 2013. He also shined at Eurobasket with 13.9ppg, 7.8rpg and 2.2apg. Of course he was selected the Best Center of the tournament.

In the second team we have three Spanish players: Ricky Rubio (6'4''-G-90) from Minnesota Timberwolves, Rudy Fernandez and Nikola Mirotic of Real Madrid. They joined Slovenian point guard Goran Dragic (6'3''-PG-86) from Phoenix Suns and Montenegrin big man - Nikola Pekovic (6'11''-C-86) from the Wolves.
