Anatoly Dmitriyevich Myshkin (August 14, 1954 in Sylva, Sverdlovsk Oblast, Russian SFSR, Soviet Union) is a retired Soviet and Russian basketball player. A 6 feet 10 (2.07m) tall cornerman, Myshkin broke all the schemes in European basketball due to his unique skill set. Mobile and aggressive, he possessed the speed and versatility to beat any defender. Playing for CSKA Moscow he won eight consecutive Soviet Union League titles from 1977 to 1984. Even though his team was a Euroleague regular, Myshkin never had the chance to battle for the top continental title.

As a member of the Soviet Union national team he led them to back-to-back Eurobasket titles in 1979 and 1981 and won gold at the 1982 World Championships in Colombia. He was named one of FIBA's 50 Greatest Players in 1991.

Following his retirement, Myshkin became a manager, coaching CSKA Moscow, Arsenal Tula, Universitet Surgut and Dynamo Kursk. Since 2013, he is the head coach of the Russia women's national basketball team.[1]
