† The 2000-01 season was a transition year, with the best European teams split into two different major leagues, the SuproLeague 2000-01, held by FIBA, and the Euroleague 2000-01, held by Euroleague Basketball. That season's Euroleague Basketball tournament, the Euroleague 2000-01 season, did not end with a Final Four tournament. Instead, it ended with a 5 game playoff series. So, Manu Ginóbili was named the Euroleague Finals MVP that season.
