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

It's the 13th 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 (14-15) and this (15-16) 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, like in last year, goes to Spanish superstar - Sergio Rodriguez (191-PG-86) from Real Madrid. Also he receives award for the Best Point Guard of the Year. It was really impressive year for Sergio as he managed to collect triple-crown (Liga Endesa, Copa del Rey and Euroleague titles). He also added European Championships Gold medal with Spanish National Team. Averaging 9.9ppg, 2.3rpg and 4.3apg he was selected to All-European Championships 1st Team.
Last year's Best Shooting Guard was Nando De Colo (196-SG-87) of CSKA Moscow. 28-year old player took his game to the highest level after coming back to Europe. In 28 Euroleague games he averaged 14.4ppg, 3.2rpg, 3.1apg, 1.3spg last season. In VTB League his number were 14.6ppg, 3.5rpg, 3.3apg, 1.4spg. His current season stats are even better! During the summer he represented French National team at European Championships. They eventually ended with Silver Medal (lost to France in final game). Among last year's awards we can find Eurobasket.com All-Euroleague 2nd Team, All-VTB League Player of the Year and All-European Championships Best Guard.
Nemanja Bjelica (209-SF-88) - our best Small Forward in 2015. Serbian had a great season at Fenerbahce Ulker Istanbul. In Turkish League they reached semifinals which was a bit dissapointing, but they made it to Euroleague Final Four. Individually he had impressive stats: 11.1ppg, Reb-2 (8.0rpg), 1.7apg, FGP-1 (69.0%) in TBL and 12.1ppg, Reb-2 (8.5rpg), 1.9apg, 1.3spg, FGP: 56.4% in Euroleague. He also played for Serbian NT at European Championships. They made it to semifinals and Nemanja's stats were: 13.9ppg, 6.6rpg, 2.7apg. This season he plays well for Minnesota Timberwolves in the NBA.
The Best Power Forward was unanimously voted Jan Vesely (213-C/F-90). The Czech athletic freak is in his second year at Fenerbahce Ulker Istanbul improving his game at every section. He also played great at European Championships averaging Score-3 (19.3ppg), Reb-2 (9.1rpg) and 1.0apg in 9 games. He is expected to join back the NBA very soon.
Center of the Year Award goes to Ante Tomic (217-C-87) of FC Barcelona Lassa. The Croatian giant played 44 games in Liga Endesa averaging 10.4ppg, 6.1rpg, 1.9apg. In Euroleague his stats were even better - 11.5ppg, 7.1rpg, 2.3apg. He was voted to Eurobasket.com All-Spanish Liga Endesa 2nd Team and All-Euroleague 2nd Team. He helped his team to make it to Euroleague Quarterfinals and Liga Endesa Finals. His stats at European Championships were: 5 games: 9.4ppg, 6.2rpg, 1.4apg
Coach of the Year could only be one - Pablo Laso . He have won everything he could with Real Madrid last year.
In the All-Europe 2nd Team we have Bobby Dixon (178-PG-83), Milos Teodosic (195-PG-87), Jonas Maciulis (198-F/G-85), Andres Nocioni (202-SF-79) and Boban Marjanovic (222-C-88).

All-Europeans Player of the Year and Center of the Year go to one and only - Pau Gasol (213-F/C-80). We are all witness that the older he is - the better he plays. Eurobasket.com All-European Championships Best Player for his outstanding performance at European Championships. In 9 games he recorded unbeliveable stats - Score-1 (25.6ppg), Reb-4 (8.8rpg), 2.9apg, Blocks-1 (2.3bpg), FGP: 56.3%, 3PT-3 (66.7%), FT: 80.5%. He is also one of the best player in the NBA, currently playing for the Chicago Bulls.
At two guards positions we have previously mentioned Sergio Rodriguez and Nando de Colo.
The Greek Freak - Giannis Antetokounmpo (206-G/F-94) - was voted best Small Forward. This young talent from Greece shows impressive fluidity for a player his size (he is still growing). Last season he played in all 87 games for the Milwaukee Bucks averaging 12.6ppg, 6.7rpg, 2.6apg, 1.1bpg. He also played at European Championships with Greek National Team. His stats were: 9.8ppg, 6.9rpg, 1.1apg.

In 2014/2015 he was selected to NBA All-Rookie 1st Team (9.6ppg, 4.7rpg, 1.1ap). Nikola was one of the key players for Spanish National Team at European Championships this summer - 12.7ppg, 4.9rpg, 1.4apg and Gold medal.
