Turkish Airlines EuroLeague MVP for March: Nick Calathes, Panathinaikos OPAP Athens

5 years ago
Nick Calathes has led Panathinaikos OPAP Athens to a near-perfect March, winning four games and losing one at the buzzer, and showing his best version all month long. Calathes, one of the best playmakers in competition history, is the EuroLeague's assists leader and has literally done a little bit of everything to make sure his team bounced back from a difficult situation. Not only Panathinaikos is into the playoffs race at the end of March, but holds its destiny in its own hands - a win against Buducnost VOLI Podgorica will send the Greek powerhouse into the next round, regardless of other scored. His leadership, game-winner shots and overwhelming numbers made Calathes the natural choice of Euroleague Basketball to be the MVP for March.
