The Euroscar European Player of the Year Award for 2018 presented by La Gazzetta Dello Sport was appointed to Milwaukee Bucks‘ Giannis Antetokounmpo.

The Euroscar is an annual basketball award given to the year’s best male European basketball player, and its name is a portmanteau of “Europe” and “Oscar”, often referred to as “European basketball’s Oscar”.

Giannis gathered 134 points, surpassing Luka Doncic and Nikola Jokic in the voting, while he became the second Greek to win the award since Nick Galis in 1987.
