NEW YORK, Dec. 27, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- See video from Euroleague at:
Dimitris Diamantidis from Panathinaikos has been named Turkish Airlines Euroleague December MVP. In six previous seasons with the Greens, Diamantidis was never known for his numbers. The five-time Euroleague Best Defender and 2007 Final Four MVP was instead known for his defense, leadership and the intangibles that helped Panathinaikos win the Euroleague in 2007 and 2009. In this season 2010-2011, he finished the regular season ranked second in the Euroleague in performance index rating with 18.7 per game -- the best of any player headed to the Top 16. He also ranks second in the league in assists, fourth in steals and is among the Top 10 in fouls drawn, free throws made and three-pointers made.
