Panathinaikos, European Champion 2011

Panathinaikos basketball team, my Greek team, has once again won the Euroleague for the sixth time, just 2 titles behind Real Madrid. That is why many consider Panathinaikos as the King of European Basket, since the Athenian side has won the title 6 times in the last 15 years.

Playing Maccabi Tel Aviv in Barcelona the Greek side beat the opponent 70-78 after a magnificent and in many respects tense game, which brought the title back to Athens.

This, ofcourse, was a great excuse for the Panathinaikos fans to celebrate at Omonoia Square, which is located in the centre of Athens. Also festivities began right after the end of the match, where more than 4000 Panathinaikos fans were watching the game and supporting the team in the stadium in Barcelona.
The video here shows how Panathinaikos won its previous 5 European titles, making it the best Greek team.
