Last evening in Vitoria-Gasteiz, Kyle Hines wrote another personal record. The undersized center of CSKA Moscow scored 4/6 from the 2 points range passing this way the legendary Nikola Vujicic. The Croatian was a powerful center of the modern era, spending his career (2001-2011) between Asvel Lyon, Maccabi Tel Aviv, Olympiacos and Anadolu Efes.
Kyle Hines has reached 851 buckets inside the arc with more than 61% in 251 games played for Brose Bamberg, Olympiacos and CSKA Moscow, while Nikola Vujicic has only 850 with almost 56% but in just 192 games.
If Kyle Hines will continue to play like this in the next couple of seasons he can enter top 3 all-time in Euroleague at this category. The 1.98 m center has two big advantage for this to happen:
- he has the best percentage from all the players in the Top 10 all-time in the continental competition and
- the next in front of him on the list are older players like Paulius Jankunas and Felipe Reyes and the retired Mike Batiste.
