Which players made their debut on the courts of the Euroleague this season and have stood out most with their performances? Shortly before the end of the regular period, Eurohoops.net evaluates the rookies and ranks them.
The Euroleague is a competition that is difficult and tough, and you have to experience it for a while before you can be able to cope. Most players need time in order to be able to adapt to the demands and get used to the level of competitiveness. Head coach Andrea Trinchieri of Brose Baskets Bamberg made an excellent analysis of this in the “Coaches Corner” column on the Euroleague website.
Most players need time and several games’ worth of experience in order to perform according to their actual capacity and rise to the level of the competition. But there are some who stand out, some who have shown this kind of quality early on and have are candidates for best rookie at this early stage of the season.
The evaluation wasn’t made based on statistics, but rather on the players’ performance, the role that they have within their teams, and the effect that they have on the overall performances of their teams.
