Nikoloz Tskitishvili has had a roller-coaster career ever since he was catapulted into the limelight by being drafted as a 19-year-old by the Denver Nuggets as the fifth overall pick. The MVP of the first Las Vegas Summer Camp and part of a great Benetton Treviso team in 2002, expectations were high but they weighed heavy and he couldn't live up to expectations. The unwanted tag of biggest bust in NBA lottery history is difficult to shake. However on the flip side, he is an extraordinarily talented player on his day. He loves teams who give him freedom, just like the National Team so he can run the floor, jack up triples and excel with a pick and pop offence. Will be a key figure for Georgia at EuroBasket 2011.
