Following a vote by fans, media, head coaches and team captains – each with the same 25% weight – here is the 2023-24 All-EuroLeague First Team!

Facundo Campazzo, Real Madrid
A two-time EuroLeague champion looking for a third crown in Berlin, Real guard Facundo Campazzo has been voted onto an All-EuroLeague team for the first time in seven seasons in the competition. Last summer, the defending champs strengthened the roster by bringing Campazzo back to the club after two and a half years away. The 33-year-old Argentine, who was named the November MVP of the Month, became nothing less than a conductor for Los Blancos as they set a new EuroLeague record with 27 regular-season wins before sweeping their playoff series against Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz. Campazzo dished 6.5 assists per game, which were second most in the league this season. His 1.3 steals per game were seventh in the league, while his average PIR of 16.9 led Real and his 11.7 points were third on the team.

Mike James, AS Monaco
Following a memorable season that saw him become the EuroLeague’s all-time leading scorer, Mike James of Monaco has become an All-EuroLeague First Team selection for the second time in the last three years. The 33-year-old guard, playing in his 10th EuroLeague season, netted 10 points or more in 38 of his 39 appearances and was fundamental to Monaco setting a new club record with 23 regular-season wins. He was chosen as the February MVP of the Month, his fifth such honor, which ranks second all-time. James surpassed Vassilis Spanoulis as the EuroLeague’s all-time top scorer on March 7 and kept adding to a career total that now reaches 4,623 points. His 2023-24 campaign came to a close with James ranking second in the league in scoring, at 17.9 points per game, and third in PIR, at 19.4 on average. He also ranked seventh in assists with 5.1 and boasted 4.1 rebounds per game, one of the top averages among guards.

Kendrick Nunn, Panathinaikos AKTOR Athens
Kendrick Nunn joined Panathinaikos at the end of October, once the 2023-24 campaign had already begun, and made his first appearance in Round 7. It didn’t take long for the 28-year-old to demonstrate his quality as he scored 10 points or more in all but two regular-season games from Round 11, finishing with a team-high scoring average of 15.4 points. Nunn then went to another level in the playoffs by averaging 19.2 points, including 26.0 per contest through Games 3, 4 and 5 against Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv to help Panathinaikos return to the Final Four after a 12-year absence. For his efforts, Nunn was named the March/April MVP of the Month. In total, Nunn scored 526 points in 33 games, the most any player has ever managed in his first EuroLeague campaign.

Nigel Hayes-Davis, Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul
Another first-time All-EuroLeague selection is Fenerbahce forward Nigel Hayes-Davis, now in his fifth EuroLeague campaign. Hayes-Davis enjoyed his best season to date in helping Fenerbahce end a five-year wait to return to the Final Four. The 29-year-old forward netted a combined 492 points, with a remarkable 50 of those coming in Round 32 against ALBA Berlin as Hayes-Davis broke the EuroLeague’s single-game scoring record. As Fenerbahce’s best scorer this season, he managed to pour in a double-digit number of points in 26 of his 35 games. Not only did Hayes-Davis lead Fenerbahce with 14.1 points per game, but he paced the team in average PIR, at 15.9, and rebounds, at 4.7. He was on the court more than any EuroLeague player this season, an average of 31:42 minutes per game.

Mathias Lessort, Panathinaikos AKTOR Athens
Panathinaikos big man Mathias Lessort is the only player returning to the All-EuroLeague First Team from last season. Having switched Partizan Mozzart Bet Belgrade for Panathinaikos last summer, Lessort quickly became a fan favorite in Athens thanks to his exuberant playing style. In his fifth EuroLeague season, Lessort posted a career-high 13.7-point average, second-best on Panathinaikos, while also leading the team and finishing eighth in the league with 6.2 rebounds per game. Lessort scored in double figures in 33 games and had 15 games with 7 rebounds or more. His 2.4 offensive boards ranked fifth overall. It all added up to a second-ranked PIR average of 19.6, the highest of any player going to the Final Four. The powerful center was a lot to handle in the paint, which led him to drawing a EuroLeague single-season record of 257 fouls.
