Year-Round News & Updates on the Minnesota Timberwolves
Andrei Kirilenko has had one of his best NBA seasons with the Minnesota Timberwolves this year. After spending a year playing in his native Russia and winning the Euroleague MVP, AK returned to the NBA this season with the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Today it was announced that Andrei is the recipient of the Euroscar European Player of the Year Award. It's given annually to the top European Basketball player.
The award is voted on by players, coaches and sportswriters from 14 countries. Some past winners include six-time winner Dirk Nowitzki (2002-06, 2011), three-time winner Pau Gasol (2008-2010), Tony Parker (2007) and Peja Stojakovic. Those are/were some very good players in the NBA, no doubt this is an incredible honor for the 10th year pro.
The award will be presented to AK prior to Wednesday's game vs. the San Antonio Spurs.
