As a result of voting that included fans, media and, for the first time in EuroLeague history, head coaches and team captains, Nikola Mirotic of FC Barcelona was selected for the 2020-21 All-EuroLeague First Team!
Mirotic was a dominant force throughout the season, ranking second among all EuroLeague players in performance index rating (19.6 PIR), fourth in rebounds (5.8), eighth in points (15.5) and 15th in steals (1.2).
The superstar of FC Barcelona did all that while shooting the ball extremely well (60.2% 2FG, 42.2% 3FG, 86.8% FT). Just six more players reached all three of those thresholds, but among them, only Mirotic took 100 shots or more of each type.
Mirotic’s first-ranked 30.6 PIR per 40 minutes made him more prolific than any EuroLeague player while he was on the court. Most important of all, Mirotic led FC Barcelona to a first-place finish in the regular season.
With its well-earned home-court advantage, the team passed a tough playoffs test to reach its first Final Four since 2014.
