We bring you last week's top performances from Swedish players who are playing abroad and who all have had prior experience of national team duties at youth or senior level.


Jonas Jerebko
Jonas Jerebko
   #1. This week's number one is an international power forward Jonas Jerebko (206-87, currently plays in NBA), who plays in the NBA. He could not help the Detroit Pistons (0-7) in their last game. Despite Jerebko's very good performance the Detroit Pistons were crushed 108-79 on the road by the Los Angeles Lakers. He was the top scorer with 18 points in 29 minutes on the court. So far Pistons lost all seven games in the Regular Season. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. It's Jerebko's fourth year with the team. Jerebko has relatively good stats this season: 9.1ppg, 2.9rpg, 1.4spg, 3FGP: 25.0% and FT: 76.5% in the seven games he played so far. He is a naturalized American. Jerebko is currently a member of the Swedish senior national team. Strangely he has never played in Sweden.

Jeffery Taylor
Jeffery Taylor
   #2. Second place goes to former U20 international forward Jeffery Taylor (200-89, college: Vanderbilt, currently plays in NBA). Taylor contributed to an overtime Charlotte Bobcats' victory against the Dallas Mavericks (4-3) 101-97 in the NBA on Saturday night. He scored 8 points, had 6 rebounds and made 2 blocks in 32 minutes. The Charlotte Bobcats have 2-3 record this season. They ended the series of three consecutive loses. But the season is still in it's first stage and everything can happen. It's Taylor's first year with the team. This season Taylor averages: 3.8ppg, 1.5rpg, 2FGP: 46.2%, 3FGP: 14.3% in the four games. He is a naturalized American. Taylor played for the Swedish U20 national team in 2008. Apparently he has never played in Sweden.

Jonathan Skjoldebrand
Jonathan Skjoldebrand
   #3. The Swedish player who performed third best last week abroad was an international power forward Jonathan Skjoldebrand (204-83, agency: Ronsport, currently plays in Israel). Skjoldebrand was the major contributor in a Hapoel Tel-Aviv's victory against the closely-ranked Maccabi Rishon (3-1) 80-63 in the Israeli Winner League in Monday night's game. He recorded 15 points. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Hapoel Tel-Aviv (3-1) is placed second in the Winner League. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. But there are still lots of games to play and it's a long way to go. Skjoldebrand has individually a very good season with high stats. He averages: 15.8ppg, 5.3rpg, 2FGP: 59.5%(22-37) and FT: 87.5%. Skjoldebrand has a dual citizenship: Swedish and Israeli. Ex-Sodertalje Kings player is also a member of the Swedish senior national team.

Thomas Massamba
Thomas Massamba
   #4. Point guard Thomas Massamba (185-85, currently plays in Bulgaria) contributed to an easy victory against the closely-ranked Euroins Cherno More (2-2) crushing them 105-71 in the Bulgarian NBL last Saturday. He recorded 8 points in only 13 minutes. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Lukoil Academik Sofia (4-0) is placed first in the NBL. So far his team won all four games in the Regular Season. It's Massamba's first season with the team. This year Massamba's overall stats are: 5.0ppg, 2.8rpg and 3.0apg in the four games. He is also Swedish national team player.

Joakim Kjellbom
Joakim Kjellbom
   #5. An experienced international center Joakim Kjellbom (213-79, college: N.Arizona, currently plays in Georgia) led Armia to an easy victory against the league outsider STU (0-4) crushing them 95-42 in a derby game in the Georgian Superleague on Saturday night. Kjellbom recorded 13 points and grabbed 7 rebounds. BC Armia Tbilisi (3-0) is placed second in the Superleague. So far his team won all three games in the Regular Season. This season Kjellbom has relatively solid stats: 10.3ppg and 7.7rpg. He plays currently for the Swedish national team.

Brice Massamba
Brice Massamba
   #6. Power forward Brice Massamba (208-88, college: UNLV, currently plays in Croatia) was not able to help Djuro Djakovic (3-3) in their game against Kvarner 2010 (4-1) in the Croatian A1. Massamba scored 5 points, grabbed 8 rebounds and dished 3 assists in 28 minutes. Djuro Djakovic lost 56-69 at home to the second-ranked Kvarner 2010.

This year Grant averages only 1.5ppg in the six games. He plays currently for the Swedish national team.

Chris Czerapowicz
Chris Czerapowicz
   #9.

The list of other players, who all have Swedish passport but never been selected to any of Swedish national teams:

   #1. Maciej Lampe (211-F/C-85, currently plays in Spain) was the major contributor in a Caja Laboral's victory against the 11th-ranked Regal FC Barcelona (3-3) 80-69 in the Spanish ACB last Sunday. Lampe scored 15 points. Caja Laboral Vitoria (4-2) is placed fourth in the ACB. But the season just started, so everything may happen. This year Lampe has relatively solid stats: 12.8ppg and 4.0rpg. He has a dual citizenship: Polish and Swedish.
