A new era in European basketball sees its first major pivot point with the end of 2016 coinciding with the halfway point in the schedule. Right before that, however, two Turkish Airlines EuroLeague giants who battled for the title last May in the championship game, CSKA Moscow and Fenerbahce Istanbul, will take each other’s measure in Round 14. It is also a reunion for head coaches Dimitris Itoudis and Zeljko Obradovic. The former was the assistant coach for the latter at Panathinaikos from 1999 to 2012, and together they shared many unforgettable moments, including five EuroLeague titles. Last spring, the apprentice managed to snag the trophy from the master in Berlin, and now they meet again in a regular season game that promises send 2016 out with a bang.
