Mr. Europa

The Mister Europa European Player of the Year Award is an annual basketball award created in 1976 and given today by the panel of journalists of the Italian weekly magazine Superbasket. Its purpose is to praise the best European basketball player, regardless of where he plays in the world, including NBA players, for a given season. The award is judged on the basis of both sports club and national team performances and accomplishments.

Like the Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport's Euroscar Award, and the Eurobasket's All-Europeans Player of the Year, it is not the official FIBA European Player of the Year Award, which is given out by FIBA. Croatian small forward Toni Kukoč currently holds the record for most wins with four, three of them being consecutive, a record as well.

Honor roll

When a player has been with more than one club in the calendar year of his award, all are listed.

Two players are listed as citizens of more than one country:

  • Toni Kukoč is listed for 1991 as a citizen of both Yugoslavia and Croatia because Croatia declared its independence in that year.
  • Predrag Stojaković is listed as a citizen of both FR Yugoslavia and Serbia and Montenegro in 2002, the year of establishment of the latter entity.
