Euroleague Power Rankings: Maciej Lampe Lights It Up

By: Nick Gibson / @euro_adventures

In March of 2002, a 16-year-old Maciej Lampe played his first ever Euroleague Top 16 game for Real Madrid.  The Polish prodigy scored seven points in 14 minutes and a little over a year later, the Knicks made him LeBron James’ opposing bookend as the 30th pick of the 2003 NBA Draft.

New York whipped around and dealt him to the Suns in the Stephon Marbury trade, and three years and 64 games later, Lampe was out of the league at the age of 20.

Last Thursday in Vitoria, Spain, a 27-year-old Maciej Lampe played his second ever Euroleague Top 16 game for Caja Laboral.  The Polish veteran scored 25 points in 26 minutes to cement his standing as the Euroleague’s MVP for the month of December.

Who knows what his third game will bring, but if it’s a win against his former club, Maccabi, then Lampe will have put Caja Laboral in the thick of the title chase.

After starting the season 1-6, how far have Caja Laboral climbed in the rankings?

  1. After such a bad start, I can’t help myself feeling a bit reserved towards them, although probably unfounded. How can they turn around like that?
