NBA stars headlines All Star Five in EuroBasket 2015

Pau Gasol led this year’s All-Star Five Presented by Tissot. Gasol was joined by teammate Sergio Rodriguez. The Real Madrid guard already had Olympic and FIBA Basketball World Cup medals to his name but EuroBasket gold had eluded him until now.

His club teammate Jonas Maciulis stood alongside him in the competition’s top five having provided some talismanic efforts to guide Lithuania to a second consecutive EuroBasket silver medal.

He averaged 13.8 points, 6.3 rebounds and led the tournament in steals with 1.9 per-game, after scoring 34 points in the Round of 16 victory against Georgia and hitting the Group D game-winner against Estonia.

Lithuania center Jonas Valanciunas also earned his first All-Star Five Presented by Tissot selection after contributing 16 points and 8.4 rebounds per-game, despite suffering with illness earlier in the competition.

France’s Nando De Colo completed the fantastic five after playing a starring role in the hosts’ run to the bronze medal.
