Tribute to the Champs: Bobby Dixon
Veteran Bobby Dixon was both a leader and a major weapon for Fenerbahce Istanbul at the point guard position as he set a Turkish Airlines EuroLeague record by hitting 78 three-point shots during the season. Dixon was one of the team's pillars throughout the campaign, playing the second-most total minutes of any Fenerbahce player. He had a big role in their playoff sweep of Panathinaikos Superfoods Athens, averaging 13.3 points on 10-of-15 three-point shooting in that series. Dixon started both Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Final Four games to help Fenerbahce soar to the title. He contributed 9 points and 3 assists in the semifinal victory over Real Madrid and posted 8 points and 2 assists in the championship game against Olympiacos Piraeus. His two years with Fenerbahce have been the two most successful seasons in club history. In that span, Dixon played in 62 of a possible 64 EuroLeague games while averaging double figures in scoring. His achievements prove that hard work pays off, because at age 34, after playing for 10 different clubs in four different countries, Dixon has earned the right to be called a EuroLeague champion!
