Ilona Korstin, the United League General Manager:
— After the fans and the media vote, the League choses last 4 All-Star Game players. When choosing a wild card, we paid attention to player’s individual stats and achievements in the League.
Andrey Martiuk from Loko is the best young player of the League last season, in the 22/23 season he even improved and got into the Team of the Round 5 times. He should deservedly become one of the New School team leaders.
Malik Newman is Avtodor leader and the League best scoring player with 20 points per game, so the All-Star Game format suits him perfectly.
Casper Ware has once again proved in recent games that he is CSKA star and one of the most recognisable players – a team that goes undefeated and has already set several League records.
Louis Labeyrie from UNICS is a newcomer, but at the same time the French forward is in the Top 5 of the League in efficiency.
