As the Euroleague said in a statement:  “Vujicic was the most decorated big man of his generation in the Euroleague. He was selected to the Euroleague teams five times, which is the best result among all the centers in the history of the competition and the fifth among all players. He achieved continental prominence as the centerpiece of the Maccabi team that won back-to-back championships in 2004 and 2005 and then experienced glory by winning again as sporting director when Maccabi won their next championship in 2014 .
He becomes the ninth player to win Euroleague Basketball's highest award as a player, after Theo Papaloukas, Juan Carlos Navarro, Ramunas Siskauskas, Sarunas Jasikevicius, Dimitris Diamantidis, Mirsad Türkkan, Felipe Reyes and Vassilis Spanoulis.
Among Euroleague centers with at least 100 games, he currently ranks first in PIR (15.9), scoring (12.7) and assists (2.7), third in defensive rebounding (4.0) and eight in rebounds (5.4) per game.
Despite almost a decade since his retirement, Vujicic is one of only two players to have 2,000 points, 1,000 rebounds and 500 assists, along with Nick Calathes.
After announcing his departure from Maccabi Tel Aviv at the end of the season after nine years as team manager and then general manager, there were rumors that Nikola Vujicic would become the CEO of a possible new Euroleague franchise based in Dubai.
