The top Euroleague Basketball players of the 2007-08 season were honored at the Euroleague Basketball Awards Ceremony at the Circo Price in central Madrid attended by a world basketball elite, including many of the legends spending the weekend at the 2008 Final Four as part of the year-long 50 Years of European Club Basketball celebration. Each of the award winners received their trophy from one of the 50 greatest personalities honored at Friday’s special ceremony. The event was highlighted by the selection of Ramunas Siskauskas as MVP for the season. Siskauskas received his trophy from another former MVP, Toni Kukoc. In addition to Siskauskas, the All-Euroleague First Team also included, at point guard, Terrell McIntyre of Montepaschi Siena; at shooting guard/small forward, Trajan Langdon of CSKA; and at power forward/center, Terrence Morris of Maccabi Elite and Tiago Splitter of Tau Ceramica. The All-Euroleague First Team trophies were handed out by Dejan Bodiroga and Arvydas Sabonis. All five first-team selections came from teams that qualified for the Final Four. CSKA’s Langdon is the only repeat selection on the first team, while Siskauskas was a second-team choice last season. Photos
