Who are the top players to watch at FIBA EuroBasket 2022?

The action begins Thursday in the Czech Republic, Italy, Georgia and Germany -- an 18-day tournament culminating with the final stage in Berlin, and some of the NBA's top superstars are hoping to lead their countries to the title.

Most notably, the winners of the past four MVPs and a young phenom poised to win a few of his own will be in action: Giannis Antetokounmpo, Nikola Jokic and Luka Doncic. The Dallas Mavericks guard led Slovenia to the title in 2017 -- can he do it again?

The star power doesn't end there, with a host of NBA players taking part, including All-Stars Rudy Gobert and Domantas Sabonis and one player who moonlights as a movie star.

Who will shine brightest in the battle for European hoops supremacy? NBA Insiders Jonathan Givony and Kevin Pelton are breaking down their 25 picks -- draft style.
