Miloš Teodosic is a Serbian professional basketball player who performs his craft for the Los Angeles Clippers of the National Basketball Federation. The point guard and shooting guard player is also part of the Serbian national basketball team and plays internationally with it.
Before joining the NBA in 2017, leading NBA coaches across Europe voted Teodosic the best non-NBA player in the world in 2016. The Italian newspaper La Gazzetta Dello Sport also named him European Player of the Year 2016, and Milos remains one of the best European players of all time.
Teodosic was born on March 19, 1987, in Valjevo, the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, as the son of Miodrag and Zorana Teodosic. His older brother Jovan is also a well-known professional basketball player from Serbia. He started playing basketball at the age of 6 in his native town of Valjevo – one of the traditional home towns of Serbian basketball. His career started when he moved to Metalac as a student. In 2001 at the age of 14, he also played for FMP from Belgrade. Teodosic won his first big trophy – MVP of Euro League 2009/10 at the age of 20 when he played for Olympiakos B.C. In the 2014/15 season, he received the same award as a player for CSKA.
Miloš Teodosic has won a total of eight trophies for the two big clubs he played for – Olympiacos and CSKA. Since sports like football are the focus of attention in Eastern European countries like Serbia, Miloš is considered one of the greatest basketball players born and raised on European soil.
Miloš signed a contract worth a whopping 5.7 million euros with CSKA Moscow of the Russian league. He led the team to the EuroLeague finals in his first season but lost to his former club Olympiacos B.C.
In the 2015-16 EuroLeague season, they defeated their opponent Fenerbahce Ulker Istanbul in the final after an extra-time 101:96. At the 2016 Summer Olympics in the men’s singles, he won the silver medal for his country.

Miloš has also won several gold medals, one of them during the FIBA European Under-20 Championship 2007, the FIBA European Under-18 Championship 2005, and the FIBA European Under-16 Championship 2003 in the Serbian team.
Miloš was ranked among the top 5 players in the world due to the deceptive, unpredictable, and creative style of his passing style. His strength lies in his ball-handling, intelligence, vision, dribbling, catching, pin-down shooting, and scoring skills among all.
Miloš Teodosic is currently playing as Point/Shooting Guard at the Los Angeles Clippers, where he wears the number 4 jersey. On July 10, 2017, he signed a 2-year contract worth $12.3 million with the Clippers. He made his NBA debut on October 19, 2017, after long anticipation of the game against the Los Angeles Lakers, where he scored 6 points and 6 assists.
However, an injury to the plantar fascia on his left foot put the brakes on his first season in the NBA. In the meantime, he has returned to the game and insisted on staying for the 2018-19 season. He has been compared to players like Zoran Slavnic and Aleksander Djordjevic.
