Gasol Named EuroBasket 2009 MVP Presented By Tissot
20 September 2009
By Simon Wilkinson

Spain's Pau Gasol was selected as the Most Valuable Player and named to the All-Tournament team of EuroBasket 2009 presented by Tissot, the official timekeeper of Europe's premier basketball competition.

Gasol led his team to their first ever European men's title with 18 points 11 rebounds and three blocks in the 85-63 win over Serbia.

After losing in the championship game six times - most recently at home in 2007 - Spain finally broke through, thanks in large part to Gasol, who was the tournament's leading scorer with 18.6 points per contest while also grabbing 8.3 rebounds (2nd best) and blocking 2.2 shots per game (1st).

The star center headed the EuroBasket 2009 All-Tourament Team, which also featured his teammate Rudy Fernandez, who averaged 13.6 points and led all players with 2.1 steals per game.

The rest of the All-Tournament Team was rounded out by Serbia guard Milos Teodosic, Slovenian big man Erazem Lorbek and Greek guard Vasileios Spanoulis.

And at the end of the gold medal game on TV the team was announced and all the players were given an award and a watch. I watched myself and that was definitely the team. And as I said, there is no 2nd or 3rd team.

haha true, yeah dont know what the other site is then, probably those teams were just chosen by the writers on that site, but yeh i found it strange that navarro was on the first team as pg too.
