With the most dangerous man in Europe being set loose once again, the criminal spree across Turkish Airlines EuroLeague gyms keeps growing day by day and nobody seems able to do anything about it.

Everyone is watching in awe as audacious criminals do whatever they want. The stolen Euroleague trophy is nowhere to be found and even though one of the five perpetrators is on the top of the most-wanted list, no charges were pressed against any one.

Krunoslav Simon: You have heard his name before, but this is the first time he got arrested. He is a Croatian mobster, well known in the criminal underground for his many talents. That was proven in Milan, where he works for EA7 Emporio Armani Milan, and did everything imaginable against Anadolu Efes Istanbul. He stopped at 14 points, missing just one shot, and also absconded with 9 rebounds and 8 assists. In other words, he showed no mercy.

Nando De Colo: This is a record fifth arrest for him during the last two years, still the French sniper who resides in Moscow is not behind bars. What else has he to commit in order to stay in prison? This time he had 28 points and 6 rebounds, as CSKA Moscow survived the showdown with Real Madrid. Yes, he is number one on the most-wanted lists, but this apparently doesn’t mean anything for the authorities, who allowed him to walk once again.

Chris Singleton: You may remember this thug who was arrested for forgery last year in Russia. He transformed from a forward into a center overnight and that’s how he continues to make his living in Europe. He did it again for Panathinaikos Superfoods Athens against Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv. He had 26 points and 6 rebounds, proving that he feels like at home right on the middle of the criminal madness.

Johannes Voigtmann: A new entry in the most wanted list from Germany. At first sight, this goon does not seem intimidating but that’s not the story of what happened on Friday night in Vitoria. With just 13 points and 8 rebounds he dominated the notorious front line of Fenerbahce Istanbul, making things easy for Baskonia Vitoria Gasteiz. He’s a new kid on the block but he showed he won’t be pushed around.

Jon Diebler: Another sniper who proves that looks can be deceiving. For many years he operated under the radar, but now he is in the spotlight and there, he delivered for Galatasaray Odeabank Istanbul. When the crossfire came heavy between his team and Olympiacos Piraeus, he didn’t miss a shot, making five-of-five threes. When everything was said and done, he had 17 points and Olympiacos left Istanbul in shock.
