Tony Parker joined the likes of Pau Gasol and Dirk Nowitzki, in an exclusive club last night.
The San Antonio Spurs Frenchman was named European player of the year by Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport ahead of his teams game against the Milwaukee Bucks.
And having previously won the award back in 2007, Parker joined an elite group of NBA players who have won the award more than once.
Leading the way are Arvydas Sabonis and Dirk Nowitzki with six each, followed by Toni Kukoc (5), Drazen Petrovic (4), and Lakers' Gasol (3).
The Award is voted on by around 300 journalists who cover European basketball, and is recognition in part of Parker's efforts in leading France to its first championship at the 2013 EuroBasket.
Having played in the NBA for the past 13 seasons, the Spurs' point guard remains a prominent force and this award will sit alongside his five All-Star appearances, three Championships, and 2006-07 NBA Finals MVP award.
Parker has been averaging 17.9 points per game this season, helping the Spurs to a 32-9 record.
What do you think? Can Parker stake a claim as the best European export in the NBA?
