Papaloukas makes Euroleague history

Greek international point guard maestro Theodoros Papaloukas has made Euroleague history, once again.

The Olympiacos captain became the first Euroleague player to breach the 300 steals barrier with the three steals he registered in last night’s win of his team over Valencia, in SEF arena.

Papaloukas has now reached 302 steals in 208 Euroleague games in a span of ten years. He is averaging 1.45 steals per game. The average number might not be the highest one but Papaloukas is just one of the two players who have played more than 200 Euroleague games during their career.
