Following his two long years of involuntary absence from the
basketball court, Arvydas Macijauskas of Olympiacos is Euroleague Basketball's choice as the first MVP of the Month for the 2007-08 season.
Macijauskas has been nothing short of spectacular in the five of six Olympiacos games he has played in October and November. The 27-year-old shooting guard currently leads all Euroleague players in several statistical categories: performance index rating (30 per game), scoring (23.8 points per game) and two-point shooting accuracy (80%). He also ranks second in steals (2.4 per game) and eighth in free throw accuracy (86.7%).
