Tribute to the Champs: Nando De Colo
It was the best weekend of his career and Nando De Colo made the most out of it, flying back home with a suitcase full of individual awards and most importantly, leading CSKA Moscow to its seventh Euroleague title. A day before the semifinals, De Colo picked up the Alphonso Ford Top Scorer Trophy, All-Euroleague First Team trophy and the 2015-16 Euroleague MVP award. When it came time to prove he was worthy of those accolades, De Colo was more than up to the challenge. In the first game in Berlin, De Colo had the most points scored in either a Euroleague semifinal or title game in two decades with 30 against Lokomotiv Kuban Krasnodar. He finished with the most points in the Final Four, 52, of any player this century. With the season and title on the line, De Colo stepped up in crunch time in the final against Fenerbahce Istanbul by scoring 10 of his 22 points in overtime to lead CSKA to Euroleague glory. De Colo added the Final Four MVP trophy to an armful of individual awards to put an end to an incredible season for both him and his team.
