Since yesterday, fans across Europe can cast their votes for the All-Time NBA European Moment -- the third open category of "NBA 75 Euro Vote." Fans can submit their votes on NBA.com/Eurovote and join the conversation on social media using #NBA75Eurovote hashtag.
The shortlist of moments was selected by a panel of mostly European media members, but also influencers and celebrities. Nominees are:

- Greece’s Giannis Antetokounmpo scores 50 points in Game 6 of the 2021 NBA Finals, propelling the Milwaukee Bucks to their first NBA title in 50 years
- France’s Tony Parker becomes the first European NBA Finals MVP after leading the San Antonio Spurs to victory in the 2007 NBA Finals
- Spain’s Pau Gasol is the perfect complement to Kobe Bryant as he helps lead the Los Angeles Lakers to three consecutive NBA Finals appearances, winning back-to-back titles in 2009 and 2010.
- Hall of Famer and Croatian Toni Kukoč helps the Chicago Bulls claim a historic “three-peat” by winning NBA championships in three consecutive seasons from 1996 to 1998
Voting runs until Wednesday, March 9 at 11.59 p.m. GMT, and fans account for 50 percent of the final result -- the other 50% is on the panel. The winner will be unveiled Friday, March 11.
Tribute to the European Greats
According to the league Official Release, the point of the NBA 75 Euro Vote is to pay tribute "to current and former European players who have inspired generations of basketball fans across the continent and celebrates NBA fandom in Europe."
Once the winner of the greatest NBA European Moment is declared, fans will also be able to cast their votes on the All-Time NBA European First and Second Teams (March 28 – April 10, 2022), which will be the last voting category.
