Dimitris Diamantidis.
Any other names put are inaccurate and biased opinions. No player can change a team as much as Diamantidis does.

Best defensive player in Europe. (won the Euroleague best defensive player 5 times in a row)
Easily a Top 5 most clutch player in the WORLD.
Has shoot the 3PT, distribute the ball with great results.
He's a PG-SG-SF all in one and can defend PFs and Cs as well.

There are tons of good offensive guards like Navarro and Teodosic, scoring bigs and slashing guard-forwards, but no one is as near as Diamantidis is overall.

And Diamantidis stated he will never consider the NBA as he plays for one of the best teams in Europe under the best coach in the world with the best fans in the world cheering for the team. Nothing the NBA can give him to outmatch that ;)

Although I can't really argue that Diamantidis is for sure one of the top 5 players in Europe, how is it not biased that you chose him?

:cool:

Only players that can match him OVERALL are healthy Khryapa and Mickael, a younger Papaloukas and Luis Scola returning to Europe :p
He might not be the MOST clutch player, or the greatest scoring guard or rebounding guard but he's the only one that does all that plus being the best defensive player around...

You need him to score, he does that.
You need him to dish out passes, he does that.
You need him to grab offensive rebounds, he does that.
You need him to get some steals, he does that.
You need him to win you the game on either end, he does that.
You need him to post up, he does that.
You need him to jack the threes, he does that.
You need him to mark taller guys, he does that.


Biased or not, it's a no contest ;)

Being the best player in europe is just an opinion. NOT a fact!!! So there are no inacurate or biased answers, just opinions that you might not agree with. Last year the best european player was Splitter in my opinion but he is in the nba now. This year i have no clue.

Because it's not and it's common knowledge over here that Diamantidis is by far and away the best around.

I'm throwing some love out for Juan Carlos Navarro though.
