The top Euroleague Basketball players of the 2006-07 season were honored at a gala dinner attended by a world basketball elite of almost 1,500 people at Megaron Concert Hall in central Athens on Saturday night. The awards ceremony came with a twist, as a tie in the voting for the best point guard of the season was resolved in the most crowd-pleasing way. Theodoros Papaloukas of CSKA Moscow was chosen as MVP for the season, while Dimitris Diamantidis of Panathinaikos was also included as point guard on the All-Euroleague First Team. Papaloukas and Diamantidis were joined on the first team by shooting guard Juan Carlos Navarro of Winterthur FC Barcelona, small forward Trajan Langdon of CSKA, power forward Luis Scola of Tau Ceramica and center Nikola Vujcic of Maccabi Tel Aviv.
