Matjaz
Smodis
One of the most dominant forwards of the past decade, three-time Euroleague champion Matjaz Smodis has decided to retire, at the age of 33, after finishing his career as a champion. Playing for his hometown team Krka Novo Mesto, a club where he started his career, Smodis was named the MVP of the playoffs finals, as Krka downed Union Olimpija 61-71 in Game 4, to win its fourth consecutive domestic title.

"Game 3 loss was a wake-up call for us, but we knew if we play tougher, harder, it will be difficult for Olimpija to beat us," Smodis said after scoring 21 points to lead Krka to Game 4 victory, and the national title, - "Thanks to all the fans, and all the people at the club, for an ideal end of a long and successful career"

For Smodis, this was his 16th domestic trophy, winning at least one with each of five clubs he played with during his career, in addition to three Euroleague titles he has to his name. The first Euroleague crown for Smodis came in 2001, in his Euroleague debut, when his Virtus Bologna won the best-of-five Finals against Tau Ceramica. Two more titles Smodis won with CSKA Moscow in 2006 and 2008, both coming against Maccabi Tel Aviv.

Smodis was also a three-time Euroleague runner up, playing title games in 2004 with Fortitudo Bologna, as well as 2007 and 2009 with CSKA. He played 11 Euroleague seasons, amassing 170 games and ranks among Top 25 all time in both points (1,818) and rebounds (687), as he is one of only seven players to have tallied at least 1,800 points and 650 rebounds in his career.

Smodis went on to win Italian League trophies with Virtus Bologna in 2001 and with Fortitudo Bologna in 2005, as well as six consecutive Russian League titles with CSKA Moscow from 2006 to 2011. He also won six domestic cup titles.
