SERBS MVP s IN BASKETBALL !

What days for Serbian basketball.While it is awaited to disclose whether Nikola Jokić, as all the announcements say, is really the MVP of the NBA league, Serbia has – the best basketball player in the Euroleague.Because, our national team member, Vasilije Micic, the basketball player of Ephesus, was declared the most useful player in the Euroleague in the 2020/2021 season.With the votes of fans, media, coaches and captains of the participating teams, the Serbian playmaker was recently included in the ideal five of the elite competition for the first time in his career, and now he has experienced even greater recognition.It may not be surprising, because the 27-year-old Micic, in the season that was coming to an end, averaged 16.3 points for the Turkish team, but had 4.8 assists, 2.6 rebounds and 1.2 stolen balls.He was fourth in coshgeter performance of all Euroleague players, ninth in assists, and the leader of his team in both categories. At the same time, he was the only basketball player in the elite club competition who gave 70 or more threes and 100 or more and “doubles” and free throws, so he constantly posed a “triple danger” to his rivals, as they point out on the official Euroleague website.He was the central figure of Ephesus’ turnaround after the 8-9 performance at the start of the season, because the club achieved 14 victories in the last 17 matches, and then survived five dramatic playoff games with Real Madrid in the playoffs.Micic and Efes will open the final Euroleague tournament in Cologne on Friday at 6 pm with a match against CSKA Moscow, which will be a replay of the fight for the Euro-title from 2019. Barcelona and Armani will meet in the second semifinal.
