Slowly but surely, Maksim Mikhailov becomes the king of MVP awards!

 

For the second season in a row, Zenit Kazan opposite Maksim Mikhailov earned the CEV Champions League MVP award. Considering a big competition, which he had in his teammate Wilfredo León, Mikhailov can proudly say at the end of 2018 Final Four at Basket Hall in Kazan, that he became the best player of this season’s most elite European club tournament. Recall that Mikhailov was also named Most Valuable Player of the 2017 CEV European Championship. It all makes him the king of MVP titles.

But, the Cuban León was not skipped when it comes to individual awards for the 2018 Champions League...

Dream Team of the 2018 Champions League:

Best Outside Spikers - Wilfredo León (Zenit) and Osmany Juantorena (Lube)

Best Middle Blockers Marko Podraščanin (Perugia) and Dragan Stanković (Lube)

Best Opposite Tsvetan Sokolov (Lube)

ITA M: Fantastic four ready to battle for Scudetto!

#1 This is going to be a tremendous year for the Italian League. Every team has made moves to improve throughout the league.
#2 The top 4 are so close that it would not be wise to bet money.
#3 Depth and Roster managment may be the determining factor this year. It that happens , Lube and Perugia are in trouble with so much $ invested in such a few.
#4 I think the Super Coppa was a predictor to the Finals of the Scudetto. Modena and Trentino will upend Lube and Perugia. Reply
