    Shane Larkin all week long and twice on Sunday.

    Veselj is laughable as MVP.

    No one can argue that Shane Larkin was instrumental and the top dog dragging a poor EL standard team from the last places of the EL last year to the F4. OK he had help from 2-3 others players but he was the man that dragged Efes kicking and screaming to the elite. He transformed a plastic team into a true force.

    His PIR in the last 10 RS games, Play offs and the yesterday are out of this world. No player is more important for his team than SL.

    Yesterday's game counts for F4 MVP. Efes was 4th all season long, they weren't waiting for Larkin to hit form.

    Rather strange decision, though predictable. And the best moment of the season with him simply laughable!
    But IMO this season there was no obvious MVP, like before. Out of the First Five Micic deserved it the most.

    Some NBA fans are right when they say Euroleague doesn't mean much. If Vesely is your MVP.

    Larkin did not deserve RS MVP in any case.

    About Vesely, as Bob will say when he comes over, this was the weakest year ever in terms of having 1-2 clear dominant players on good teams to be actually serious candidates for MVPs.

    I believe that it should have been Clyburn but whatever, nobody was actually much more impressive than Vesely to make such strong statements.

    Sad days for basketball in Europe. Not only because player like Vesely has won that award, he really doesn’t have almost any basketball skills but because there really wasn’t anybody much better.

    in retrospect, after F4 elimination, it sounds weird, but who else could it be?

    Higgins or Clyburn, I think you could make a case for both.

    Larkin. He's been the ace in our sleeve. He would be the MVP of the 2nd half of the year certainly, but not overall. For Efes, Moerman probably was the most dependable player, Micic maybe the most critical, but neither were exceptional enough to bring up in MVP conversation.

    Calathes. Not to start another discussion, but you could make a case.

    Overall, I think, for lack of a better candidate, Vesely deserved it.

    Vesely is 20 in rebounds, 17 in blocks and 14 in points. That’s our new MVP.

    I don't think many would agree.
    Injured 1/3 of the season, many mediocre games.
    One more reason why I'm glad that Fener lost.

    So no one has skills?
    There were at least 5 guys who deserved it more then Czech imo.
    His stats (that are far from impressive as noted already) are product of the team, not his individual quality.
    He's not the leader type of player.

    Individual rewards in team sports are many times weird. Like Modric last year. He won it because Real and Croatia had great results. Was he really the best football player in the world?

    What is sad, that next year will be even less competition, especially in C position. No Bitadze, no Poirier, probably no Milutinov, Gudaitis with bad injury... Some stars getting very old. The level of Euroleague even lower.

    True. Still neither a few others were the best in the world but were better the Vesely.

    Perhaps his mid-range jumpers in F4 were the final trigger for EL trust of minds. Seriously, he has taken more mid-range jumpers in this one and half game than in previous two seasons in total. lol And he's not shooting bad at all.
    What happened to him after the injury? Should we expect him to shoot 5 three-pointers per game next season?
