BACK AT LAST: All-EuroLeague forward Quincy Miller made his long-awaited return this week for Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv. So did the reigning MVP, CSKA Moscow’s Nando De Colo, who missed last seven EuroLeague games.
GIVING BACK: Ahead of the new year, teams make attempts to bring cheers –and few presents – at the local children’s hospitals. Kids loved seeing Sylven Landesberg of Maccabi, while Real Madrid’s Felipe Reyes and Sergio Llull had a company of soccer superstars Cristiano Ronaldo and Sergio Ramos at the children’s hospital in Madrid.
2017, WITH STYLE: Charles Jenkins gave the fans a peak into what the awesome-looking Crvena Zvezda 2017 calendar looks like.
SURROUNDED BY WOMEN: Is there a better way to end the old year and get ready for a new one than surrounded by your loved ones. For Real Madrid’s Jonas Maciulis, it means with all the very important women in his life – mother, sister, his wife and their daughters.
FATHER TIME: When not battling on the basketball floors, the EuroLeague stars love nothing more spending time with their families. During the holiday season, some of them took some of the moments with their children to social media - Artsiom Parakhouski of Unics, Tyrese Rice of Barcelona, Nick Calathes of Panathinaikos and Gustavo Ayon of Real Madrid.
WINNERS’ CORNER: Eight teams ended 2016 with a Round 15 victory. Here’s to more victories for everybody in 2017!
