Zadar (CRO), Trieste (ITA), Olimpia Milano (ITA), Real Madrid (ESP), Panathinaikos (GRE), Barcelona (ESP), Virtus Roma (ITA)
An all-around player who loved to take crucial shots, Dejan Bodiroga ushered in the new century by lifting three Euroleague trophies with two different teams Bodiroga starred for the 2000 Euroleague champs of Panathinaikos and then was named MVP when the Greens won again in 2002. He went to Barcelona the next year and ended that club's Euroleague title drought, repeating as Final Four MVP. Along the way, Bodiroga became the first player to win domestic titles in Spain, Italy and Greece, and added Saporta Cup and Korac Cup crowns. He also was both World and European champ with his Yugoslav national team.
WHAT THEY SAY...
"It is a great honour and I feel very happy because seeing the 35 players that made it to the list, it is an impressing one. Like I said, it is an honour to be part of such a big team. I will be great to be a part of the ceremony in Madrid because it will be very good to be with all the contributors that made European basketball history at such a big event like the Euroleague Final Four."
