EUROLEAGUE ALL-DECADE CANDIDATE: Mirsad Turkcan
by: Euroleague.net
January 14, 2010
More than just pulling more rebounds than any Euroleague player this decade, Mirsad Turkcan turned rebounding into an art form. Turkcan was so steady at collecting misses that he amassed a remarkable 48 double doubles and was one of only three players to record a 20-point, 20-rebound game. He led the Euroleague in rebounding three times, and finished second or third another three times. His records were based both on longevity and game-to-game dominance as Turkcan was the decade's best both in rebounds per game and total rebounds. Just focusing on his rebounding greatness isn't enough, howerer. Turkcan took two teams to Final Fours and is also an accomplished scorer and passer, even if he is the undisputed rebounds king of his generation.
