So why was he given the award? Was it because of the fans? That means he was popular and a star. Was it the media and/or coaches? That means Euroleague professionals believed he was a top 2 pg in Europe.
And it could be argued that Teodosic was the best European player of the year in 2010 because he was Euroleague MVP was in the Euroleague final and was voted FIBA WC all tournament team while Dirk and Pau skipped that competition. So it could be argued that in 2010 Teodosic was the best European player and he was definitely one of the best. Just as in 2011 it could be argued that Pargo was the 2nd best pg in Europe and he was definitely one of the best and therefore a star. So whatever reason he was voted as the 2nd best pg in Euroleague, be it the fans, coaches, or media, it carries some weight.
