Tribute to the Champs: Mikhail Kulagin
Mikhail Kulagin was on the floor for just 48 seconds of his team's Round 20 victory at FC Barcelona Lassa before he suffered a broken bone in his left foot that required surgery and ended his season. The 25-year-old guard had averaged 1.8 points in nine EuroLeague games till that point. He also put together some big games in the VTB United League prior to the injury. Despite his frustration from an individual standpoint, Kulagin joined a select group of players to be crowned EuroLeague champion twice. He won his first title in 2016, which was his first professional season with CSKA. Kulagin, who also played for CSKA's junior teams, now has one more EuroLeague crown than his older brother, All-EuroCup guard Dmitry Kulagin of Lokomotiv Kuban Krasnodar.
