The Euroleague Final Four Most Valuable Player Award is presented to the basketball player who has exhibited exceptional play during the Euroleague Final Four. The award typically goes to the best player on the Euroleague's best team. It is generally considered to be the most prestigious individual award in European professional club basketball.
The Final Four MVP award was first given at the end of the 1987-88 season, when the competition that would later become called Euroleague Basketball, was then known as the FIBA European Champions Cup. Prior to the 1987-88 season, the Top Scorer of the Euroleague Finals was noted. However, an actual MVP was not named until the first Euroleague Final Four was held.
† The 2000-01 season was a transition year, with the best European teams splitting into two different major leagues: The Suproleague, held by FIBA, and the Euroleague, held by Euroleague Basketball. That season's Euroleague Basketball tournament 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.
Kukoč won his first two awards in 1990 and 1991, as a citizen of SFR Yugoslavia; Croatia declared its independence on June 25, 1991, after that year's Champions Cup finals.
Bodiroga won his first award in 2002, as a citizen of FR Yugoslavia. The country changed its name to Serbia and Montenegro in February 2003, three months before he won his second award; upon the dissolution of the latter state in 2006, he became a citizen of Serbia.
