The EuroLeague season is coming to an end and it’s time to announce the season’s leaders.
Like every year, this time as well, Eurohoops after presenting for the first time its own “quirky” awards, gives its own “traditional” distinctions as voted by all the journalists of all editions.
So here’s our second All-EuroLeague team, which could easily give the first team a run for their money.
Lorenzo Brown (Maccabi Tel Aviv)
2022/23 stats: 16.4 points, 3 rebounds, 5.5 assists, 1.1 steals, 16.1 PIR in 35 games
Lorenzo Brown had a terrific season in his first year with Maccabi Tel Aviv. It was one of the reasons the Israelis came one win away from the Final Four.
And in total, he had four votes for the First Team and nine for the Second
Wade Baldwin (Maccabi Tel Aviv)
2022/23 stats: 17.2 points, 3.8 rebounds, 5.1 assists, 17.6 PIR in 34 games
And if Lorenzo Brown is one reason for Maccabi‘s run this year, Wade Baldwin is the other one. The American guard continues his upward trajectory in the EuroLeague after stints at Bayern and Baskonia.
The 27-year-old received 12 votes for the First Team and four for the Second.
Dzanan Musa (Real Madrid)
2022/23 stats: 15.2 points, 3.2 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 16.4 PIR in 39 games
Dzanan Musa is back in the Euroleague, this time in a different role. And with a “heavier” jersey. The Bosnian guard stood out in Real’s run this year and is rightfully among the best.
The 24-year-old collected two votes for the First Team and 13 for the Second.
Nigel Hayes-Davis (Fenerbahce)
2022/23 stats: 10.5 points, 4.4 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.2 steals, 13.4 PIR in 39 games
His stats may not be at the level of the above, but he certainly has offered a lot more than just numbers. Nigel Hayes-Davis stepped up tremendously and forced Fenerbahce to re-sign him early.
The American forward had five First Team votes and eight Second.
Mathias Lessort (Partizan)
2022/23 stats: 12 points, 7.1 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 19.1 PIR in 38 games
Mathias Lessort did incredible things this year for Partizan. He was the “pillar” of the Serbian club. The Frenchman has been dominant in almost every game this year, sweeping in rebounds.
That is why he collected seven votes for the First Team and 15 for the Second.
Ranking (x2 Top Five votes)
Mathias Lessort (Partizan): 29 (7+15)
Wade Baldwin (Maccabi Tel Aviv): 28 (12+4)
Nigel Hayes-Davis (Fenerbahce): 18 (5+8)
Lorenzo Brown (Maccabi Tel Aviv): 17 (4+9)
Dzanan Musa (Real Madrid): 17 (2+13)
