With a new year on the way, the excitement keeps building in the Turkish Airlines Euroleague. A dramatic regular season gave us four group winners as favorites going into the Top 16, which starts Tuesday, December 29. Fenerbahce Istanbul and Lokomotiv Kuban Krasnodar will battle with powers such as Anadolu Efes Istanbul and Panathinaikos Athens in their new, eight-team group. Olympiacos Piraeus and CSKA Moscow, meanwhile, have three more former champions - FC Barcelona Lassa, Real Madrid and Zalgiris Kaunas - in theirs. The stage is set for 14 games of high intensity and great entertainment in the Top 16!
Pull up a comfy chair and grab a bowl of popcorn! The just-completed regular season will be much more than a memory to anyone who witnessed the sights and sounds of great basketball enjoyed by even greater fans. The thrill of victory, the agony of defeat and incandescent skills are all there in this cinematic look at the regular season.
The coach with the most Euroleague trophies ever, Zeljko Obradovic, and the only player in European history to become continental champ with three different clubs, Sarunas Jasikevicius, guide you down memory lane to Berlin in 2009 and the title they won together in one of the closest Final Fours ever.
