The European basketball season is getting underway. European basketball is a great supplement to the NBA, featuring a fun combination of the NBA’s past, present, and future, with potential and nostalgia everywhere throughout the continent. If you’re an NBA fan who wants to dig deeper into basketball, this is the best next step to take.
To prepare you for the season, we decided to spend this week highlighting the players you will want to pay attention to next season. This group has a mix of reasons for this – the traditional “best players in Europe” are here, along with the best NBA prospects. We also give due praise to the elite role players, quirky play styles, and fascinating players in new situations that will color the way that things unfold when Euroleague, Eurocup, and the FIBA Champions League start. Parts One, Two, Three, and Four of the list can be found here, here, here, and here: Now it’s time for numbers 10-1. Who is the most interesting player in European basketball this year?
