Vote for the center in the 2022-23 Star Lineup

MIES (Switzerland) - Season Seven of the Basketball Champions League is set to come to its conclusion in May, and this of course means that apart from crowning a 2022-23 champion, we also get to give out some well-earned individual awards.

On the eve of the May 14 Final, the BCL will announce the five players who make up the 2022-23 Star Lineup, alongside the MVP of the Season, the Best Young Player, the Defensive Player of the Season, and the winner of the Coach of the Season award.

The coaches and captains of the teams that participated in the Round of 16, a panel of media members and, naturally, the fans will all have a say in picking the award winners, so here is your chance to vote for the players that you want to see rewarded for their efforts during the season.

The Star Lineup will include two guards, two forwards and one center. The ballot for the guards is right here, and the ballot for the forwards in over here.
