n recent years, European basketball has seen many top-shelf athletes making the big leap and trying their luck in the NBA.

However, more than a few players have followed the opposite route, leaving the USA to shine on the courts of Europe’s top competition.

With the help of certain criteria, Eurohoops presents this season’s Top 10 American players in the EuroLeague. The criteria that were used are the following:

Individual performance
Player’s skills/ quality
Role and contribution in the team’s game
Team’s course

As is readily understood, the subjective aspect always influences these kinds of features. Besides, the competition was huge and many big names, such as James Gist, Anthony Randolph, Bryant Dunston and Jamel McLean, were left out of the Top 10.
