Nowitzki, who played for the Mavericks for his entire 21-year career and is currently the NBA's sixth all-time leading scorer, led all vote-getters.

The All-Time NBA European Second Team consists of reigning NBA MVP Nikola Jokic (Denver Nuggets; Serbia), Hall of Famers Toni Kukoc (Croatia) and Arvydas Sabonis (Lithuania), NBA champion Peja Stojakovic (Serbia), and the late Drazen Petrovic (Croatia).

The All-NBA European First and Second Teams were selected by fans in Europe and a blue-ribbon panel of more than 40 European media, broadcasters, influencers, and celebrities.

The fan vote accounted for 50 percent of the final results while the panel made up the other 50 percent.

"European players past and present have made an indelible impact on the NBA and the game of basketball," said NBA Head of Fan Engagement and Direct-to-Consumer for Europe and the Middle East George Aivazoglou.

"As we celebrate our landmark 75th Anniversary Season, it is fitting to recognize and honor the best European players of all time, all of whom have inspired generations of players and fans across the continent and around the world."
