Traditionally each year Eurobasket announces the European awards for last year.

Eurobasket has a network of almost 200 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 (17-18) and this (18-19) 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).

Luka Doncic (6'7''-G-99) of Dallas Mavericks, who spent last season at Real Madrid, was unanimously named the All-Europe Player of the Year to complete one of the greatest year by a teenager in basketball history. Luka was the youngest player ever to become the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague MVP and Final Four MVP. Now, he is having unbeliveable season in the NBA averaging 19.6ppg, 6.5rpg and 5.1apg and shocking the world with another spectacular plays every night.

Alexey Shved (6'6''-G-88) of BC Khimki Moscow Region was, also unanimously, named best Shooting Guard of the Year. Russian superstar made history by breaking several Euroleague and VTB League records, all while leading Khimki Moscow Region to a sucessful season. Alexey doesn't even thing to stop as he leads Euroleague in scoring with impressive 25.3ppg at the end of the year.

Best Small Forward in 2018 was Cory Higgins (6'5''-G-89) of CSKA Moscow. The product of the University of Colorado is in his 4th season in CSKA Moscow leading the team to 10-5 record averaging over 15ppg.

Tornike Shengelia (6'9''-PF-91) of Kirolbet Baskonia Vitoria was named best Power Forward of the Year. One of the most spectacular player in Europe is in his already 5th season in Vitoria. Last season he won All-Euroleague Forward of the Year, All-Spanish Liga Endesa 1st Team awards and made it to All-Euroleague 1st Team -18. More is yet to come!

Another highlight machine - Jan Vesely (7'0''-C/F-90) of Fenerbahce Istanbul - is our Best Center of 2018. After earning All-Euroleague Center of the Year
last season, the Fenerbahce Istanbul superstar has started the 2018-19 season in style leading his team to 14-1 record in Euroleague and 11-1 in Turkish League.

Coach of the Year award goes to Sarunas Jasikevicius who made Zalgiris Kaunas one of the best European team once again.

Sergio Rodriguez (6'3''-G-86), Nando De Colo (6'5''-G-87), Nick Calathes (6'6''-PG-89), Luigi Datome (6'8''-F-87) and Nicolo Melli (6'9''-PF-91) were all chosen to All-Europe 2nd Team.

There was no surprise as Giannis Antetokounmpo (6'11''-G/F-94) of Milwaukee Bucks was named All-Europeans Player of the Year. The Greek Freek is arguably, the most athletic player in the NBA and still improving his basketball skills. Giannis is already one of the early candidates in the race for this season's NBA MVP award.

Another candidate for NBA award (Rookie of the Year), Luka Doncic, was named All-Europeans Point Guard of the Year. Who knows, maybe Luka will follow Giannis' path to become on the the best in the world?

Best European Shooting Guard of the Year in Alexey Shved. The Alphonso Ford Trophy winner is arguably going to steal this award for years.

Dario Saric (6'10''-PF-94) of Minnesota Timberwolves, a versatile fowrard from Croatia, is our All-Europeans Power Forward of the Year. After being an important part of 76ers, Dario was traded to Minnesota Timberwolves in November. Team is different, but Saric is still doing his things on the courts averaging 10.9ppg, 5.8rpg and 1.6apg. His stats would have been even better if he could focus on improving his game during summer breaks. "Absolutely, I think I would be a better player if I didn't play the last five, six years on the international team every night."

Nikola Jokic (6'10''-C-95) of Denver Nuggets was named All-Europeans Center of the Year. The Denver Nuggets has finished 2018 on the top of Western Conference and Nikola Jokic is a huge reason why. Jokic leading the charge and playing outstanding basketball would be a huge candidate in the NBA MVP conversations. All-Europeans 2nd Team consists of Goran Dragic (6'3''-PG-86), Evan Fournier (6'6''-SG-92), Bojan Bogdanovic (6'8''-SF-89), Danilo Gallinari (6'10''-SF-88) and Rudy Gobert (7'1''-C-92).
