Dimitris Diamantidis, chosen Sportingbet MVP of the Turkish Airlines Euroleague Final Four
Dimitris Diamantidis padded his resume as one of the great point guards in European basketball history with his second Sportingbet MVP of the Turkish Airlines Euroleague Final Four award after leading Panathinaikos to its sixth continental title on Sunday. Diamantidis was overwhelmingly chosen Sportingbet MVP by accredited media after recording 16 points and 9 assists in the title game as the Panathinaikos bested Maccabi Electra Tel Aviv 70-78. Diamantidis joins Toni Kukoc (1990, 1991, 1993) and Dejan Bodiroga (2002, 2003) as the only players to earn the prestigious honor more than once. He was previously Final Four MVP when Panathinaikos won the title in 2007 in Athens.
