I realized I’m absolutely focused in the Olympic Games so I think it’s a good moment to take a break before the opening ceremony. Today we are back with european clubs. I started with Maccabi Tel Aviv because it was the first FIBA team to defeat a NBA team in history but Real Madrid is the king of Europe with 9 championships and 8 runner-ups.
Another bit of history. An inevitably retro collection of a team sadly disappeared but of course it deserves to be remembered. Yugoslavia is considered one of the best teams in basketball history with 5 World Championships, 8 Eurobaskets and 1 Olympic gold medal. But between this achievements Yugoslavia is the reponsible team of 2 big eras of domination in the international basketball.
