Nicolas Batum – France and Portland Trailblazers

The unique combination of size, speed and athleticism make Nicolas Batum a nightmare to guard on the wing. "Nico" thrilled the crowd with monstrous dunks at the EuroBasket in Lithuania, also taking over responsibility when the game came down to the wire and providing much needed outside shooting for a France team that is traditionally lacking true shooters. In the NBA, Batum has been a key player for the Portland Trailblazers, starting most of the games and scoring in double-figures.
