Panathinaikos Athens, also known as The Greens, were the favorites to win the title at Barcelona this year and they did not disappoint fans and critics alike. The MVP performance shown by Dimitris Diamantidis (who fittingly also earns the award for the Final Four MVP, as well as Season MVP) has lifted the Greens to where it rightly belongs - at the top of Euroleague competition. This will be the sixth Euroleague trophy for the team and coach Zeljko Obradovic's eighth overall. Maccabi Electra was a strong contender but PAO proved to be too much for the Yellow army to contain! Congrats to Panathinaikos for a great season!
