Andrei Kirilenko – Russia and CSKA Moscow

"Andrei [Kirilenko] is like a wild horse; he is at his best when roaming around, without a specific role." said Russia coach David Blatt at the EuroBasket. And whoever saw Kirilenko play multiple positions, guard shooting guards and centers within only a few minutes and crash the boards in Lithuania, had to agree. The forward's return to the Russia roster made them immediate contenders and a bronze medal after a tough loss to France in the semi-final in one of the best games of EuroBasket 2011 was the logical consequence.
