2016-17 EuroLeague MVP: Sergio Llull, Real Madrid

After thrilling fans all over the continent with his skill and daring throughout the most competitive season in the history of European basketball, Sergio Llull of Real Madrid was rewarded on Saturday for his virtuoso accomplishments by being named the MVP of the 2016-17 EuroLeague. Llull learned of the MVP honor at the end of the Euroleague Awards Ceremony to highlight a gala evening at the opulent Ciragan Palace in Istanbul, Turkey, on the next-to-last night of the 2017 Final Four. The trophy for the top performer of the season was presented to Llull by new Euroleague Basketball Legend Mirsad Turkcan.

After thrilling fans all over the continent with his skill and daring throughout the most competitive season in the history of European basketball, Sergio Llull of Real Madrid was rewarded on Saturday for his virtuoso accomplishments by being named the MVP of the 2016-17 EuroLeague. Llull learned of the MVP honor at the end of the Euroleague Awards Ceremony to highlight a gala evening at the opulent Ciragan Palace in Istanbul, Turkey, on the next-to-last night of the 2017 Final Four. The trophy for the top performer of the season was presented to Llull by new Euroleague Basketball Legend Mirsad Turkcan.

Llull's fellow members of the previously announced All-EuroLeague First Team – Bogdan Bogdanovic and Ekpe Udoh of Fenerbahce Istanbul, Georgios Printezis of Olympiacos Piraeus, and last season's MVP, Nando De Colo of CSKA Moscow – were also honored at the event. So was the 2016-17 All-EuroLeague Second Team – Brad Wanamaker of Darussafaka Dogus Istanbul, Milos Teodosic of CSKA, Nicolo Melli of Brose Bamberg, Gustavo Ayon of Real Madrid and Bryant Dunston of Anadolu Efes Istanbul – as were the winners of the Alphonso Ford Top Scorer Trophy, Keith Langford of Unics Kazan; the Rising Star Trophy, Luka Doncic of Real Madrid; and the Best Defender Trophy, Adam Hanga of Baskonia Vitoria Gasteiz, who was unable to attend due to his professional commitments.

Llull received more votes than any other player during the MVP selection process, which was open to both fans and media. In his 10th season with Madrid, Llull posted career-best EuroLeague averages with 16.4 points, 5.9 assists, 2.2 three-pointers made and 16.8 performance index rating over 32 games while leading his team to the Final Four. His unbelievable knack for hitting buzzer-beaters from all distances and angles made him as dangerous and decisive as any player in the league, while his non-stop commitment at both ends of the court went a long way to assuring Madrid the best record, 23-7, in the longest regular season in competition history.

Llull, a EuroLeague champion with Madrid in 2015, will play in Sunday's third-place game at the Final Four after his 28 points in a loss Friday to Fenerbahce Istanbul matched the most in a semifinal at the event this century.

At 29 years old, Llull is the undisputed leader of Madrid and the motor of its offense. He ranked third in the EuroLeague this season in assists, fifth in scoring and eighth in performance index rating. When the stakes were raised, the Madrid playmaker boosted his number to 18.5 points and a 17.8 index rating in four playoff games against Darussafaka Dogus Istanbul. Llull started in every game this season and led Madrid in minutes played (27:44 per game) and a total of 70 three-point shots made, another personal best and the fourth-most in the competition. Llull was named MVP of November, a month during which he averaged 21.4 points per game. He also earned MVP honors for Rounds 7 and 27. Llull made his debut on the All-EuroLeague First Team after having previously been voted to the second team in 2010.

Llull started the competition on fire, scoring 22 points against Olympiacos and getting a double-double of 14 points and 11 assists in a road win against Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv. Soon after that, Llull broke his personal EuroLeague scoring record by dropping 30 points in a narrow home win against Panathinaikos Athens. Llull continued leading Madrid, scoring 20 points in a road triumph against FC Barcelona Lassa and hitting three consecutive bombs from way downtown to help Madrid down CSKA Moscow 95-85, a win that would eventually allow Madrid to finish first at the end of the regular season. Not only did he have 26 points in an 89-91 road win against Brose Bamberg, but Llull hit an unbelievable game-winning floater to win that game. Fans had come to expect such heroics from Llull, though. Several of his many three-pointers during were made with the shot clock or game clock about to expire, each one seemingly more impossible than the last – but they all fell through the net to the amazement of the crowds.

"First of all I have to say that it is an honor for me to receive this award," Llull said on the stage immediately after accepting the trophy. "I want to congratulate all players here tonight. I think they all could have won it. I also want to thank the fans and media for voting for me. Last but not least, I want to thank my teammates and coaches who work with me all year, because without them it would have been impossible to win this award. Thank you."

Llull becomes the 12th different player to win the MVP award since the current end-of-season awards format was introduced in 2005. He is the third Spanish-born MVP, after Juan Carlos Navarro collected the award in 2009 and Llull's former teammate Sergio Rodriguez won it with Madrid in 2014. Llull started his career in La Salle in his hometown Mahon and played for Basquet Manresa before joining Real Madrid in 2007. In addition to his EuroLeague title in 2015, Llull has helped Madrid win four Spanish League and five Copa del Rey titles, in addition to the Intercontinental Cup title in 2015. Llull has also been very successful with the Spanish national team with which he has won three EuroBasket gold medals and one bronze, as well as two Olympic medals, silver in 2012 and bronze in 2016. He celebrated 10 years since signing with Madrid a few days ago and now Llull can mark the anniversary as the season's most valuable player, adding his name to the EuroLeague history books in golden letters!

ABOUT THE BASKETBALL STEAL

( Para la Versión en Español: Ver a Continuación de la Fotografía! )

Statistician's Digest:
Who gets really the credit for the steal ?


When we have really a steal ? Which are the guidelines ?

For example:
Player A1 from Team A bats the ball away from a player on the Team B, but finally A2 from the Team A gets possession of the ball. Who gets the credit for the steal ? A1 or A2 ?

We are just studying this statistical category in the eBA ONLINE Basketball Statistics Clinic: the steals. Just to begin the discussion, some definitions:

In basketball, a steal occurs when a defensive player legally gains control of the ball from an offensive player. This can be done by deflecting and controlling, catching, or batting (to a teammate) a pass or dribble of an offensive player. A steal may happen while the offensive player is dribbling, holding the ball, or by intercepting a pass. The defender must not touch the offensive player's hands or otherwise a foul is called.

This a classical definition. The eBA conception is given in the Basketball Statistics Analysis Course and will be applied in the answer. And now, we are prepared for this question, A1 or A2 ? ...

SOBRE EL RECUPERO DEL BALÓN EN BALONCESTO

Selecciones del Estadígrafo:
Cuándo realmente tenemos un recupero de balón ?


Cuándo realmente tenemos un recupero de balón ? Cuales son los lineamientos del sistema ?

Por ejemplo:
El Jugador A1 del Equipo A golpea el balón sacándoselo a un jugador del Equipo B, pero finalmente es A2 del Equipo A quien obtiene la posesión del balón.
Quién obtiene el crédito del recupero del balón ? A1 o A2 ?

Nosotros estamos justamente estudiando esta categoría estadística en la Clínica de las Estadísticas del Baloncesto eBA EN-LINEA: los recuperos o robos del balón. Sólo para iniciar la discusión, algunas definiciones:

En baloncesto, un recupero o robo de balón ocurre cuando un jugador en defensa gana legalmente el control del balón que se hallaba en poder de un jugador atacante. Esto puede ser hecho por medio de una deflexión y control, agarre o golpe al balón ( en dirección a un compañero ) de un pase o drible de un jugador atacante. Un recupero o robo de balón puede ocurrir cuando el jugador atacante está dribleando, sosteniendo el balón o interceptando un pase. El defensor no debe tocar las manos de jugador atacante, en cuyo caso una falta personal será penada.

Esta es una definición clásica. La concepción eBA está desarrollada en el Curso de Estadísticas del Baloncesto y será aplicada en la respuesta. Y ahora estamos preparados para la pregunta, A1 o A2 ? ...

Unforgettable Legends: Jerry West
Inolvidables Leyendas: Jerry West


BASKETBALL UNFORGETTABLE LEGENDS: JERRY WEST<

( Para la Versión - no es Traducción Literal - en Español:
Ver a Continuación de la Fotografía! )


Born: May 28, 1938 (age 78 years), Chelyan, West Virginia, United States
Height: 1.88 m
Education: West Virginia University
Awards: Bill Russell NBA Finals Most Valuable Player Award
Spouse: Karen West (m. 1978), Martha Jane Kane (m. 1960–1976)
Position: Shooting guard, Point guard
Jerry West in Wikipedia

Jerry Alan West (born May 28, 1938, in Chelyan, West Virginia) is a retired American basketball player who played his entire professional career for the NBA's Los Angeles Lakers. West has also had a successful career as a coach and as an executive. He was enshrined in the Basketball Hall of Fame in 1980, and his left-handed dribbling silhouette has long been used in the National Basketball Association's official logo.

West was a standout in high school and at college, attending West Virginia University and leading it to the 1959 NCAA championship game (of which he was named Most Valuable Player) before embarking on a 14-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers. He also played for, and co-captained with Oscar Robertson, the 1960 U.S. Olympic gold medal team in Rome.

His nicknames included "Mr. Clutch," for his skill and ability to make a shot in a clutch situation, and "Zeke from Cabin Creek," given to him by teammate Elgin Baylor, and one West was not particularly fond of. The latter name is somewhat of a misnomer, but not completely; Cabin Creek is the name of both a stream and a community near West's hometown of Chelyan. The community of Cabin Creek is on the opposite side of the stream from Chelyan as it enters the Kanawha River.

West's son, Jonnie, is currently a redshirted-freshman for the West Virginia Mountaineers basketball squad (2007 - 2008 season).

Nacimiento: Chelyan, Virginia Occidental, 28 de mayo de 1938 (78 años)

Jerry West en Wikipedia

Jerome Alan "Jerry" West (nacido el 28 de mayo de 1938 en Chelyan, Virginia Occidental, Estados Unidos), conocido como Jerry West, es un antiguo jugador de baloncesto estadounidense que destacó en las décadas de los 1960 y 1970 en Los Angeles Lakers. Ha logrado grandes éxitos, además, como entrenador y como ejecutivo en la NBA.

West lideró a la Universidad de West Virginia al campeonato de la NCAA en 1959, siendo nombrado MVP de la final, antes de jugar durante 14 temporadas en los Lakers, ganando un campeonato de la NBA en 1972. Junto con Oscar Robertson ganó la medalla de oro en los Juegos Olímpicos de Roma de 1960.

El jugador apareció en el mejor quinteto de la NBA en diez temporadas, aunque nunca fue nombrado jugador más valioso. Fue incluido en el Salón de la Fama en 1980, y su silueta fue la elegida para dar forma al logotipo de la NBA.2

Sus apodos eran "Mr. Clutch", por su habilidad y destreza en los momentos finales de los partidos; "Zeke from Cabin Creek", dado por su compañero Elgin Baylor 3 ; y "The Logo" por ser su figura la que ilustra el logo de la NBA.
