The late Drazen Petrovic is the clear No. 1 in the results of a poll conducted among 38 Eurobasket players in which we asked who were the Top 5 Europeans ballers of all time.

The players competing at the tournament apparently put a lot of stock in the performances at FIBA championships as Petrovic, Arvydas Sabonis and Dejan Bodiroga – with 11 NBA seasons combined – made the Top 4 while All-Stars like Detlef Schrempf, Predrag Stojakovic and Zydrunas Ilgauskas were massively snubbed and Dirk Nowitzki, the only Euro to win regular season and Finals MVP, ended up in a surprising fifth position.
