MVP race – without the brightest stars: who are the favorites now? / News & More Latest News Here


In the history of the European championships, only once did the MVP become a player who did not make it to the top four with his team.

The three brightest stars of the European Championship, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Nikola Jokic and Luka Doncic, did not make it to the semifinals of the tournament, thereby eliminating their chances of fighting for the MVP award.

Only once in all 40 tournaments did a basketball player who did not make it into the top four teams become MVP. It happened in 1963, when Emiliano Rodriguez, the representative of Spain, who was in seventh place, became the MVP of the European Championship, after collecting 26.6 points in the championship.

Only one other time MVP became a basketball player who did not win a medal. It happened in 1949, when Turkish Huseyin Ozturkas (average 19.3 points) became the MVP, whose national team took 4th place.

26 times the MVP became a member of the winning team of the European Championship, 10 times – a silver winner, twice – players who received bronze medals.

Since 1963, the MVP has been the player who competed in the EC final.

The four strongest teams have been revealed in the 2022 European Championship. Ahead of the semifinals, BasketNews presents the top contenders for the tournament’s MVP award.

First, all the MVP winners of the European Championships and the places occupied by their teams:

It is necessary to emphasize that in 1939 the MVP should not have been Mykolas Ruzgys, but Pranas Lubinas. MVP was not intended for this Lithuanian due to his excessive height.

In the 2022 championship, the seven most useful basketball players did not make it to the semifinals, including the brightest stars of the tournament, Giannis Antetokounmpo (average 31 useful points), Nikola Jokičius (average 29.2) and Luka Dončičius (average 25).

Of those who made it to the top four teams, Willy Hernangomez is playing the most usefully. The Spanish midfielder averages 17.9 points, 7.1 rebounds and 19.6 assists in 21 minutes in the championship (eighth result in the tournament).

The second in the Spanish national team in terms of points (average 13.4) and utility (average 13.7) is naturalized American Lorenzo Brown.

The Polish national team also has a basketball player who is in the top ten most useful players. Mateusz Ponitka scored 40 points in the quarterfinals against Slovenia and is averaging 15 points, 6.4 rebounds, 6.9 assists and 18.6 assists.

Another Polish guide, AJ Slaughter, averages 14.3 points and records 12.6 points.

Rudy Gobert stands out in the French national team, whose average utility points are 17. In the round of 16 and the quarterfinals, the center averaged 19.5 points, 15.5 rebounds and 24 utility points.

Evan Fournier, with an average of 15 points, is the most productive basketball player of the French national team, but his utility points average reaches 6.7.

Thomas Heurtel collects 12 utility points each, Guerschon Yabusele – 11.3.

Two players stand out in the German national team. Dennis Schroder is averaging 20.2 points, 7.2 assists and 14.7 assists.

Not far behind him in terms of efficiency is Franz Wagner, whose average is 13.1. The young talent averages 16.3 points and 4.1 rebounds.

Germany in the semi-finals of the European Championship on Friday at 9:30 p.m. will meet Spain. Before that, on Friday at 18:15, the national teams of Poland and France will face each other.
