Dončić makes All-Time NBA European Teams cut


New York - The NBA has announced the results of the All-Time NBA European Team category as part of a campaign to celebrate the league's 75th anniversary and commemorate the contributions of European players. Slovenian basketball ace Luka Dončić has made it to the All-Time NBA European First Team.

Joining Dončić in the team are Greece's Giannis Antetokounmpo, Spain's Pau Gasol, Germany's Dirk Nowitzki and France's Tony Parker.

The All-Time NBA European Second Team consists of Serbia's Nikola Jokić and Peja Stojaković, Croatia's Toni Kukoč and the late Dražen Petrović, and Arvydas Sabonis from Lithuania.

The two teams were selected by fans in Europe and a panel of more than 40 European media, broadcasters, influencers, and celebrities.

The fan vote accounted for 50% of the final results while the panel made up the other 50%.

"European players past and present have made an indelible impact on the NBA and the game of basketball," said NBA Head of Fan Engagement and Direct-to-Consumer for Europe and the Middle East George Aivazoglou.

"As we celebrate our landmark 75th Anniversary Season, it is fitting to recognize and honour the best European players of all time, all of whom have inspired generations of players and fans across the continent and around the world."
