They both helped their national teams to achieve something important. Croatia qualified for Olympics for the first time in a long time. Meanwhile Great Britain qualified for Eurobasket 2009 for the first time in history.

I see...well, I guess they're both justified then. I still think Planinic is the least deserving player on the list though.

I don't think that Planinic, Deng, and Diamantidis deserved to make the list.
