14-15 Euroleague Power Rankings: Point Guards

As the 14-15 Euroleague regular season comes to an end, RealGM continues to present the ultimate positional rankings of the league's best players. In the fifth and final edition, we rank the elite point guards from one to ten. 

1. Milos Teodosic (CSKA, Russia) 

Statistics in 2014-15 (Euroleague): 17.4 points, 3 rebounds, 8.4 assists and 3.8 turnovers.

There have been multiple times when Serbian Milos Teodosic received criticism for underperforming in crucial games and not meeting the expectations after winning Euroleague MVP award in 2010. However, 2014 was the year when Teodosic made the leap and became one of the most spectacular players in Europe. The 27-year-old point guard averaged 13.6 points, 2.1 rebounds, 4.4 assists and carried Serbia to the final game of the 2014 FIBA World Cup. Teodosic also demonstrated great range from close distance while he was also making 48 percent of shots from beyond the arc. Teodosic continues his great play in Euroleague too, where, despite missing half of the games due to injury, he averages MVP-worthy numbers.

2. Sergio Rodriguez (Real, Spain) 

Statistics in 2014-15 (Euroleague): 10.6 points and 5.9 assists.

Sergio Rodriguez was not only the best point guard in the league last season, but undoubtedly the most dominating player overall. Despite not starting in a single Euroleague game during the 13-14 season, Rodriguez won MVP while Real Madrid, which was one game short from winning the title, was the most impressive team throughout the whole season. Nevertheless, this season is a different story as Rodriguez and his team are no longer as unstoppable as they were last year. Rodriguez is not scoring as much as in 13-14, but so far he has been great at involving his teammates and organizing the offense. For example, Rodriguez leads the league in assists per turnover rating (6.7) as he dished out 47 assists while committing seven turnovers in nine games.

3. Nando De Colo (CSKA, Russia) 

Statistics in 2014-15 (Euroleague): 14.9 points (95 FT%), 3.6 rebounds and 2.1 assists.

Nando De Colo, who missed the 2014 FIBA World Cup due to a fractured hand, spends a lot of time playing shooting guard this season and forms the strongest backcourt in the Euroleague with Milos Teodosic. Teodosic and De Colo combine to score 32.3 points, grab 6.6 rebounds and dish out 10.5 assists for the only undefeated Euroleague team, CSKA Moscow. De Colo’s game in 14-15 might become historical as he is also on his way to join the Euroleague 50-40-90 club. Following the ninth round of the regular season, De Colo's percentages are 57 from close range, 40 from beyond the arc and 95 from the free throw line.

4. Jeremy Pargo (Maccabi, Israel) 

Statistics in 2014-15 (Euroleague): 12.4 points, 3.1 rebounds and 5.8 assists.

After spending the 13-14 season on CSKA’s bench and averaging five points in 15 minutes, Jeremy Pargo went back where he reached his career peak in 10-11. As he did four years ago, Pargo has a chance to demonstrate his outstanding athleticism, ball-handling skills and leadership. Pargo could be considered a serious candidate to win the Euroleague MVP award this year if he improves his three-point shooting percentage and becomes more consistent. For instance, in two regular season games against his former team CSKA Moscow, Pargo made only four out of 23 shots, while he scored in double figures in just four out of nine games this year.

5. Dimitris Diamantidis (Panathinaikos, Greece) 

Statistics in 2014-15 (Euroleague): 5.4 points, 3.1 rebounds and 5.9 assists.

For the first time in his career, Dimitris Diamantidis averages more assists (5.9) than points (5.4) per game. In his first four Euroleague games, Diamantidis made only two field goals while recording 29 assists. The 34-year-old Panathinaikos symbol has never been an elite scorer, but it is obvious that his career now is in decline. Despite he can still run Panathinaikos’ offense and occasionally shine in a game or two, he averages career-low 5.4 points, makes career-low 25 percent of three-pointers and makes career-low 0.8 steals per game.

6. Marcelinho Huertas (FC Barcelona, Spain) 

Statistics in 2014-15 (Euroleague): 9.2 points (50 3FG%), 3.3 rebounds and 4.3 assists.

The 31-year-old has been one of the Euroleague's most reliable playmakers for the past five years. As this is his contract year, Huertas slightly raised his statistical numbers - points from 8.2 to 9.2, rebounds from 2 to 3.3 and assists from 3.8 to 4.3 - while FC Barcelona traditionally remains among contenders to win the title. Last week’s game against Fenerbahce Ulker was one of the best in Huertas’ career as the Brazilian guard scored career-high 25 points in the overtime loss. No doubt, even at the age of 32, Huertas will be one of the most demanded point guards once he becomes a free agent in the upcoming offseason.

7. Sergio Llull (Real, Spain) 

Statistics in 2014-15 (Euroleague): 11.1 points (44 3FG%), 2 rebounds and 4.6 assists.

Sergio Llull played an essential role for Real last seson, which started by winning 31 games in a row and was the most dominant team in Europe. However, this season Real does not seem to be unbeatable and Llull is not the one to be blamed for that. Same as last season, Llull starts games at point guard position, but spends a lot of time playing at two alongside Sergio Rodriguez, as he is a big threat from behind the three-point line (44 3FG% this Euroleague season). Lull averages almost identical numbers as in 13-14 and due to his quickness as usual he is capable to contribute more on offensive end of the floor than on defense.

8. Thomas Heurtel (Laboral Kutxa, Spain) 

Statistics in 2014-15 (Euroleague): 12.7 points (55 3FG%), 2.8 rebounds and 6.7 assists.

The last four months for 25-year-old Thomas Heurtel were the best in of his career. Heurtel successfully replaced De Colo and became a starting point guard for France in the 2014 FIBA World Cup while he has also made the leap in Euroleague this season, which helped him to climb the ladder and become the eighth best point guard in our ranking. Heurtel, who averaged only one point and 0.9 assist in 2013 EuroBasket, stepped up in 2014 FIBA World Cup, where he averaged 12.6 points and 3.8 assists throughout last five games. One of the best ball-handlers in the Euroleague continues his great performance as he ranks third in assists (6.7) and fourth in three-point shooting (55 3FG%).

9. Daniel Hackett (EA7 Emporio Armani, Italy) 

Statistics in 2014-15 (Euroleague): 14 points, 3.8 rebounds and 4.3 assists.

Daniel Hackett made a huge leap in his career last season, when he took the challenge to take Bobby Brown’s role for Montepaschi Siena. Hackett carried his team on his shoulders and helped them get three regular season wins while the point guard finished four regular season games with 24 performance index rating (PIR) points or more and was an absolute Euroleague leader in drawn fouls. After joining EA7 Emporio Armani, Hackett’s role decreased due to huge competition among backcourt players, but this year he is the most important player on a team, which already secured a place in Top 16. Hackett gets the most playing time of all EA7 Emporio Armani players (30 minutes) and leads the team in scoring (14), assists (4.3) and steals (1.1).

10. Carlos Arroyo (Galatasaray, Turkey) 

Statistics in 2014-15 (Euroleague): 14 points, 1.9 rebounds and 4.8 assists.

Despite being 35, Carlos Arroyo still proves himself capable of playing 31 minutes per game as a leading scorer on a Euroleague team. For example, in week six’s game against Crvena Zvezda, Arroyo played all 50 minutes - regular time and two overtimes - without rest and scored a career-high 26 points. Moreover, Arroyo scored in double figures in 23 out of his last 27 Euroleague games and demonstrates that he has plenty left in the tank. Arroyo can be a dominant player if he gets enough freedom, but due to low shooting percentages, he would likely not be as efficient as he is now on a winning Euroleague team.

14-15 Euroleague Power Rankings: Shooting Guards

As the 14-15 Euroleague season goes on, RealGM continues to present the ultimate positional rankings of the league's best players. In the fourth edition, we rank the elite shooting guards from one to ten. 

1. Vassilis Spanoulis (Olympiacos, Greece) 

Statistics in 2014-15 (Euroleague): 19.4 points, 2.4 rebounds, 5 assists and 4 turnovers.

The 32-year-old was an undeniable leader of Olympiacos team over the past four seasons. Same as in previous years, Spanoulis remains one of the best scorers and most influential players in the league, who always has the ball at crunch time. Spanoulis also demonstrates this season that Euroleague titles and MVP prizes did not take away his appetite as he scored career-high 34 points against Neptunas in Week 3 game and his team is among those which earned an early ticket to Top 16 with perfect 6-1 record.

2. Rudy Fernandez (Real, Spain)

Statistics in 2014-15 (Euroleague): 9.7 points (92% FT), 3.3 rebounds and 4.3 assists.

Due to a right hand injury, Rudy Fernandez has appeared in only three Euroleague games so far this season and in general was not as efficient as he was last season. The guard scored 14 points, grabbed four boards and dished out six assists against low caliber Niznhy Novgorod but overall averages career-low 9.7 points, while shooting career-low 30% from the floor. Still, it is an early stage of the season and that did not affect Fernandez’s position in RealGM positional rankings. Considering that 13-14 season was the best in Fernandez Euroleague career, the former member of thePortland Trail Blazers and Denver Nuggets deserves to be called the second best shooting guard in the league.

3. Andrew Goudelock (Fenerbahce Ulker, Turkey)

Statistics in 2014-15 (Euroleague): 19.3 points (44% 3FG), 2.6 rebounds and 2.4 assists.

Andrew Goudelock’s career in Europe is skyrocketing. Last season's Eurocup MVP, Goudelock needed no time to adjust to the highest European level and he is now on a way to possibly win the Euroleague MVP award in his debut season. Surprisingly, Goudelock was ignored by his teammates at crunch time against FC Barcelona and in the very next game he proved them to be wrong. In the game against Bayern Munich, Goudelock managed to make it to the Euroleague history by becoming the first man to sink 10 three-pointers in a single game. One of the league’s leading scorer has been also incredibly reliable as he turned the ball over only five times in 217 minutes he played.  

4. Juan Carlos Navarro (FC Barcelona, Spain)

Statistics in 2014-15 (Euroleague): 10 points, 2.2 rebounds and 4.4 assists.

As this is his 17th season with FC Barcelona, 34-year-old veteran Juan Carlos Navarro is the symbol and heart of the Catalonian club. Same as for Fernandez, the beginning of the season was not ideal for Navarro, who averages career-low 10 points per game and makes only 32 percent of his shots from beyond the arc. Navarro tries to rather involve his teammates than score by himself as he averages career-high 4.4 assists per game. However, Navarro has been always known for being clutch and ready when his team needs him in the most important postseason moments. 

5. Keith Langford (Unics, Russia)

Statistics in 2014-15 (Euroleague): 17.4 points, 3 rebounds and 1.9 assists.

Keith Langford is one of the most efficient Euroleague scorers when his team plays run and gun style of basketball. Traditionally, Langford is among top scorers in the league as he averages over 17 points per game for the third straight season. Langford is also a player who never shies away from the contact and no surprise he is ranked second in terms of drawn fouls (7.6 per game). Nevertheless, this is not enough for Unics to becoming a winning team as they have a losing record (3-4) and might become the biggest upset of the season.

6. Jaycee Carroll (Real, Spain)

Statistics in 2014-15 (Euroleague): 10.1 points (44% 3FG, 92% FT), 1.1 rebounds and 1.1 assists.

If there would be a ranking of the league's biggest offensive threats coming off the bench for the past three seasons, Jaycee Carroll would be an undoubtedly number one. However, Carroll played his career game on a very rare night when he had actually to be in a starting five. Week 3’s game against Nizhny Novgorod was the first Carroll’s start since 2012 and the guard scored a career-high 32 points, making seven three-pointers out of nine attempts.

7. Bogdan Bogdanovic (Fenerbahce Ulker, Turkey)

Statistics in 2014-15 (Euroleague): 8.6 points, 1.9 rebounds and 3.4 assists.

After having a great season last year and averaging 14.8 points per game in Euroleague, Bogdan Bogdanovic played an important role while playing for Serbian national team in 2014 FIBA World Cup. At the age of 22, Bogdanovic averaged 27 minutes and 9.4 points per game, including 15 points performance in the final against Team USA. Bogdanovic left his home country this summer and joined Zeljko Obradovic’s Fenerbahce Ulker where he also became an important part of the team straightaway. It seems Bogdanovic is not rushing to join the Phoenix Suns, which drafted him with the 27th overall pick in the 2014 NBA draft, and will continue to develop his game in Europe over the next few years. 

8. Ricky Hickman (Fenerbahce Ulker, Turkey)

Statistics in 2014-15 (Euroleague): 9.1 points, 2.3 rebounds and 2.3 assists.

Ricky Hickman played a very important role for 2014 Euroleague champion Maccabi as he was a consistent starter and scorer throughout the season. Hickman had his career performance in an opening playoffs series game against EA7 Emporio Armani, where he scored 26 points grabbed four boards, while he was also one of the most influential players in the final, where he finished the game with 18 points and six rebounds. However, the guard has a different role with his new team, Fenerbahce Ulker, where Hickman provides instant offence by coming off the bench. 

9. James Anderson (Zalgiris, Lithuania)

Statistics in 2014-15 (Euroleague): 16.3 points (41% 3FG, 85% FT), 6.3 rebounds and 2.4 assists.

It was quite a surprise to see James Anderson, who averaged 10.1 points per game in the NBA last season while playing for the Philadelphia 76ers, signing with mid-level European team Zalgiris Kaunas and taking a challenge to carry Lithuanian club to the Top 16. So far Anderson is extremely effective in his role as he averages 16.3 points, 6.3 rebounds and 2.4 assists. Anderson’s amazing performance against Unics was also one of the best in recent years for Zalgiris as the guard scored 27 points, grabbed 11 boards and dished out four assists. Considering the job Anderson already did in first seven weeks, he seems to be one of the biggest offseason steals in Euroleague.

10. Nihad Djedovic (Bayern, Germany)

Statistics in 2014-15 (Euroleague): 11.7 points, 3.4 rebounds and 3.1 assists.

Although it is just a beginning of the season, the early improvement of Nihad Djedovic’s game proves that Bayern Munich made the right decision to extent the contract with the 24-year-old shooting guard for two more years. Despite his still young age, Djedovic seems to be very matured while playing big roles for both Bayern and Bosnian national team and successfully uses his experience wisely in the Euroleague so far this. Djedovic averages 11.7 points for the second straight season but that is not enough for Bayern to get on a winning path as they won only one game out of seven.

14-15 Euroleague Power Rankings: Small Forwards

As the 14-15 Euroleague season begins, RealGM presents the ultimate positional rankings of the league's best players. In the third edition, we rank the elite small forwards from one to ten.  

1. Emir Preldzic (Fenerbahce Ulker, Turkey)

Statistics in 2013-14 (Euroleague): 10.2 points, 4.7 rebounds and 4.7 assists. 

The 2013-14 season was arguably the best of Emir Plredzic’s career. In his seventh Euroleague season with Fenerbahce Ulker, Preldzic averaged MVP-worthy numbers of 11.7 points, 4.8 rebounds and 5.6 assists in the regular season and despite the ups and downs in Top 16, Preldzic was the most efficient small forward in the whole league. Preldzic was also dominant in the 2014 FIBA World Cup, where he once again demonstrated his versatility by averaging 12.1 points, 5.1 rebounds and 4 assists. The 27-year-old forward was also under the spotlight after hitting the shot of his career, a last second three pointer that carried Turkey over Australia. Preldzic could compete for MVP award in any of the upcoming seasons but he might have to sacrifice his statistics by involving his teammates to achieve better results as a team.

2. Alessandro Gentile (EA7 Emporio Armani, Italy)

Statistics in 2013-14 (Euroleague): 11.4 points, 2.4 rebounds and 2.3 assists.

Despite his young age and EA7 Emporio Armani being loaded with deep backcourt, the 22-year-old Alessandro Gentile was one of Luca Banchi's main options in crucial moments last season. Gentile, who started playing professional basketball at the age of 16, quickly learned how to use his strong body in Euroleague and that helped him to achieve success in 13-14. Gentile also demonstrated his leadership in Italian league, where he helped EA7 Emporio Armani win the championship while Gentile was named the Italian League Finals MVP. Considering that the rising Italian basketball star was also the top scorer for the Italian national team at EuroBasket 2013, within the next three years with EA7 Emporio Armani Gentile has a great chance to become one of the youngest Euroleague MVP award winners ever.

3. Sonny Weems (CSKA, Russia)

Statistics in 2013-14 (Euroleague): 12.2 points, 3.5 rebounds and 3.7 assists. 

For the second season in a row, Sonny Weems averaged more than 12 points, two rebounds and two assists per game, which helped him to make RealGM's All-Euroleague First Team of 2013-14. Weems established himself as one of the best wings in the league back in his debut season with Zalgiris Kaunas in 11-12 and it seemed that joining a winning team and will provide him an opportunity to fully reach his potential in Europe. However, in two years Weems played twice in Euroleague semifinals and both times failed to carry CSKA to the final. In last season’s final four, Weems was one of the most disappointing players as in two games he collected 14 points, making six shots out of 23 attempts, and dished out four assists.

4. Andres Nocioni (FC Barcelona, Spain)

Statistics in 2013-14 (Euroleague): 13.6 points and 6.6 rebounds.

The 35-year-old veteran Andres Nocioni proved last season that he is still capable of playing 26 minutes a game and being a leader in a Euroleague Top 16 caliber team. Nocioni collected 20 or more performance index rating (PIR) points in seven Euroleagues games, including two 35 PIR performances against FC Barcelona and Panathinaikos Athens. Nocioni decided to improve his chances on winning Euroleague title this offseason by leaving Vitoria and joining Real Madrid. Gustavo Ayon, Marcus Slaughter, Felipe Reyes, Ionnis Bourousis, Salah Mehri - Real has one of the best frontscourts in Euroleague, and as lately Nocioni spent more time playing at power forward, therefore no surprise that his role will decrease and playing time will be limited to around 15 minutes per game. 

5. Nemanja Bjelica (Fenerbahce Ulker, Turkey)

Statistics in 2013-14 (Euroleague): 10.4 points (42% 3FG), 6.1 rebounds and 2.2 assists.

For Nemanja Bjelica, the 13-14 season was also the best of his career as he averaged solid numbers in both Euroleague and 2014 FIBA World Cup competitions. In 24 Euroleague games, Bjelica averaged career-high 10.4 points and 6.1 boards, including three double-doubles twice against FC Barcelona and once versus EA7 Emporio Armani. However, the Euroleague season for Fenerbahce Ulker ended soon while with Serbian national team Bjelica traveled all the way to the 2014 FIBA World Cup final. Bjelica led the silver-medal winning team in rebounds (6.9) as he was also one of the Top 3 scorers (11.9 PPG). As it is the case with Preldzic, Bjelica will not be the main and only Zeljko Obradovic’s option on offence this season. As Fenerbahce Ulke is once again full of talent, it is going to be difficult for Bjelica to improve his numbers, which would possibly happen if he plays for other Euroleague team. 

6. Matthew Lojeski (Olympiacos, Greece)

Statistics in 2013-14 (Euroleague): 11.1 points (43% 3FG), 4 rebounds and 2 assists.

Matthew Lojeski had a difficult task in replacing Kostas Papanikolaou in his debut Euroleague season for the back-to-back champions. By using his versatility, Lojeski did that surprisingly well - he helped Vassilis Spanoulis to lead Olympiacos all season long and was surprisingly persistent throughout regular season, Top 16 and the playoffs as he averaged more than 10 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.5 assists in each stage. Despite being his first Euroleague season, Lojeski was also a big threat behind the three-point line as he scored three or more long-range shots in eight Euroleague games last season. Lojeski revealed his intentions to have a bigger role this season, which means that if Olympaicos stays on winning track, Lojeski might become a serious contender for the MVP award.

7. Jonas Maciulis (Real, Spain)

Statistics in 2013-14 (Euroleague): 8.1 points, 4.2 rebounds and 1.7 steals.

Jonas Maciulis’ performance in 13-14 could be divided in two parts - Euroleague regular season and the rest of the year. Maciulis was one of the Panathinaikos’ leaders in regular season where he averaged 12.3 points and 5 rebounds and played his career game (19 points and eight boards) against Laboral Kutxa. Then Maciulis disappeared in Top 16 as his scoring averages dropped from 12.3 to 5.6 points per game as all his shooting percentages went down as well. The absence of few key Lithuanian national team players gave Maciulis opportunity to become a leader but the 29-year-old forward failed to use the chance. Despite Maciulis being one of the key defensive stoppers in 2014 FIBA World Cup, his contribution to team’s results (6.9 points and 2.1 rebounds per game) was far behind the expectations. 

8. Tremell Darden (Olympiacos, Greece)

Statistics in 2013-14 (Euroleague): 5.7 points (46% 3FG) and 2.6 rebounds.

Tremell Darden played an important role in last year’s Real Madrid team and was an important figure during Real’s 31-game winning streak. Darden started in 30 out of 31 Euroleague games last season and despite his statistics does not reflect that, he was one of the best defensive stoppers in the whole league. His direct opponents averaged only 6.3 points in 19.4 minutes while facing Darden, which helped Real become one of the best defensive teams in the Euroleague. Due to his specific role, Darden will never be considered as a contender to win Euroleague MVP prize, but he still holds a chance to win the Euroleague Best Defender award within the next two years with Olympiacos.

9. James White (Unics, Russia)

Statistics in 2013-14 (Italian league): 17.1 points and 5 rebounds.

While playing for three different Italian teams since 2010 (with a break in 12-13), James White was undoubtedly the best scorer in Legabasket Serie A. White, who averaged no less than 17 points per game in each of those three seasons, comes to Euroleague after winning EuroChallenge trophy with Grissin Bon Reggio Emilia, where he was also the most efficient player on the team. The 32-year-old forward averaged 15.8 points, 4 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game, including his 17 points on 5-of-8 from the floor, four rebounds and two assists performance in the final game. After White registered a double-double in his Euroleague opening game, it seems that the new leader of Unics has ambitions to be make it into the Euroleague MVP conversation too.

10. Stratos Perperoglou (Anadolu Efes, Turkey)

Statistics in 2013-14 (Euroleague): 9.9 points (46% 3FG) and 2.8 rebounds. 

Stratos Perperoglou had a career year last season after successfully taking advantage of playing some minutes at power forward due to the injury Georgios Printezis. When Printezis was out, Perperoglou played his career game against FC Bayern, scoring 25 points, grabbing four boards and finishing the game with 28 PIR points. Perperoglou collected 20 or more PIR points in four Euroleague games last season and solid performance helped him to secure a new two-year deal in Turkey with Anadolu Efes. Perpreroglou is reunited with Dusan Ivkovic again and as Anadolu Efes frontcourt is loaded with talent, Perperoglou should be again Ivkovic’s main option at small forward position.

14-15 Euroleague Player Rankings: Power Forwards

Dario Saric, Viktor Khryapa, Georgios Printezis, Linas Kleiza and Jan Vesely headline the top power forwards in Euroleague this season.

NBA Limbo

Limbo is the best way to describe the area where players whose skill and production have them vacillating back and forth between starring on the top teams in Europe or filling out the bottom half of NBA rosters.

Dario Saric's Best Case Scenario

Dario Saric is a unique player with very defined strengths and weaknesses, which gives his NBA career a wide range of possible outcomes. Maybe the biggest reason for optimism is his age, as he is one of the youngest players at the World Cup.
