Best European Basketball Clubs

The Top Ten

1 Fenerbahçe Ülker

Improving each and every time. Could even become the best European team ever, however need to prove itself with more top statistics in the years to come.

This club is the best after the NBA clubs.

Best team to watch, regardless of they win or lose! They keep fighting every second, and have the team sprit no others have.

Still growing and there's room to improve as a basketball powerhouse but the potential is just enormous.

2 Panathinaikos BC

One of the best maybe the best club of the league... still needs to prove a lot...

I am not panathinaikos but it is sure the is best european team in the last 20 years and one of the best teams in the world just one hour ago panathinaiksa won siena and went to the euroleague final for its sixth title good luck

The best coach in Europe (Zelimir Obradovic), the best player in Europe (Dimitris Diamantidis), the best center in Europe (Mike Batiste) and Sarunas Jasikevicius. Simply legends! Panathinaikos has had players-legends in the last 20 years like Dominique Wilkins, Dejan Bodiroga, Vassilis Spanoulis, Antonis Fotsis and many others! What else? Although European referees play always against Greek teams, there is no doubt that Panathinaikos is the greatest team in Europe. Call him "the emperor"!

Greatest clubs in the history of European basketball! Biggest legends of the sport have been part of this team for so many years... Greatest fans as well, together with Žalgiris fans!

3 Olympiakos BC

I am olympiakos and I think is a very good team but panathinaikos is better...

I am Panathinaikos, but surely Olympiakos is by far the best European team. They are ruling in Europe the last years. Already 2 European Championships in a row and Intercontinental Championship? I hope we can manage to compete them soon, we are of the best, but always the first is to be remembered!

There's no one like Olympiakos. He brought the game into a different level. Olympiakos team should be regarded as a lesson in the following years of European basketball.

Except 2014 olympiakos was the winner on the finals four 2012 and 2014! That's means is the best basket team the last 10 years because has also the most winners at these last 10 years!

4 Partizan

Club with the biggest heart! Coming from small country of Serbia, this team can't match other teams financially, but when measuring talent, skill, and determination, and 1992 Euroliga champions, this team is surely 1 of the best teams of Europe!

Club with great history and big passion and also best fans in the world

Look at their budget and budget from other teams. And they manage to get to the final four.

Partizan is a Religion! Come to Pionir HALL IN BELGRADE and Taste it!

5 Maccabi Tel Aviv

One of the greatest clubs in the history of European basketball. I am sure that maccabi is the best team in europe even they lost on the final four.

Best club outside the NBA, top management, love you guys

Maccabi are better than Partizan and Olympiakos. They are 6 times European champions.

6 European champions, 15 times final four... and with a relative small budget!

6 BC Žalgiris

An amazing team and well assists and rebounds

One of the best basketball clubs ever!

Certain values behind it.

Indigenous geniuses of the game.

7 Real Madrid

Ten European Cups make Real Madrid the king of Europe

If success is a measure of the greatest clubs then real Madrid take the crown

9 european cups more than anyone else

They have a very good history and continue always in that excellent form.

8 Crvena Zvezda

Greatest fans in the world!

Best fans in the world

The Newcomers

? Promitheas Patras B.C.

The Contenders

11 CSKA Moscow CSKA Moscow is a major Russian sports club based in Moscow. It is popularly referred to in the West as "Red Army" or "the Red Army team" because during the Soviet era, it was a part of the Armed Forces sports society, which in turn was associated with the Soviet Army.

I think CSKA can win it all I'm with them

Simply GREATEST ever,club destroyed by croatian centralized politics and modern financial dedicated one will ever reach greatness which KK Split had in 20th century cause it was built on local power,sweat and blood without any foreign influence...and yeah,you don't know where SPLIT is and you maybe don't know even one club or player from this place but try to explore a little bit,you will find only PURE GOLD AND POWER...

15 AEK Athens B.C.

Oh yes, I forgot ;) club's legend and crowd's favorite was one & only -
