EuroLeague Finals Top Scorers, MVPs, and Champion coaches (1958 to present)Edit

From 1958 to 1987, the Top Scorer of the EuroLeague Finals was noted, regardless of whether he played on the winning or losing team. However, there was no actual MVP award given.[1] On the other hand, since the end of the 1987–88 season, when the first modern era EuroLeague Final Four was held, an MVP is named at the conclusion of each Final Four, at the end of the EuroLeague Final.
