Panathinaikos | Guard | 1.98 | 07/02/1989 | Greece
14.2 points | 3.9 rebounds | 8.1 assists | 1.8 steals | 0 blocks | 2.3 turnovers | 28:55 minutes | 18.4 PIR
Panathinaikos’s season is overflowing with Nick Calathes and how could it be otherwise when we’re talking about his most productive season in the EuroLeague. And it’s not just what he does in terms of organization and execution. His average of 1.8 steals puts him ahead of everyone else in the competition and at the very least proves what he can do in defense as well, which cannot be fully reflected in the stats. All of this has him in fifth place in terms of the index rating.
