The five players who grace the 2017-18 All-EuroLeague Second Team presented by 7DAYS were each responsible in their own way for making history and treating fans across Europe to magnificent displays of basketball this season. They had their hands in some of the record-breaking feats and remarkable team accomplishments that made this season one to remember.
After voting by fans and accredited media members, Paulius Jankunas and Kevin Pangos of Zalgiris Kaunas, Sergio Rodriguez of CSKA Moscow, Alexey Shved of Khimki Moscow Region and Vassilis Spanoulis of Olympiacos Piraeus have been named to the All-EuroLeague Second Team.
While three players – Jankunas, Pangos and Shved – are making their first appearances on the All-EuroLeague team, Rodriguez is making his second and Spanoulis has set a record with his eighth appearance on the team, surpassing Juan Carlos Navarro of FC Barcelona Lassa.
Jankunas and Pangos give Zalgiris their first All-EuroLeague selections since Darjus Lavrinovic was such honored in 2006.
Media voting counted for 75% and fan voting 25% of the totals used to determine the All-EuroLeague selections. The All-EuroLeague Second Team is the last of a series of honors announced this week.
The EuroLeague MVP will be named at the 2018 Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Final Four in Belgrade. The Alexander Gomelskiy Coach of the Year Trophy and the Gianluigi Porelli EuroLeague Executive of the Year are post-season awards.
