July 4, 2013 - Euroleague 2013-14, Regular season Groups analysis and Quotes

Group A

After reaching the Turkish Airlines Euroleague Final Four four times in five seasons, FC Barcelona will have no other goal than challenging for its third title. Its 44-6 regular season record in those five years shows that Barcelona is always one of the teams to follow early. Just like last season, All-Euroleague center Ante Tomic and former Euroleague MVP Juan Carlos Navarro will be its most important players. Barcelona, led by head coach Xavi Pascual, will be reloaded at all positions, with a mix of experience and young talent that could really pay off in the long run. Read more here.

Group B

Coming off its best season in almost two decades, Real Madrid hopes to go one step higher and challenge for the Turkish Airlines Euroleague title. Last season Madrid won the Spanish League title and reached its first Euroleague final since 1995. Management will return a core of players that includes All-Euroleague selections Nikola Mirotic and Rudy Fernandez, guards Sergio Rodriguez and Sergio Llull, team captain Felipe Reyes and sharp shooter Jaycee Carroll, among several others. Coach Pablo Laso remains at the helm as Madrid looks to carry on its acclaimed run-and-gun and exciting -to-watch playing style. Read more here.

Group C

After dominating the Turkish Airlines Euroleague for the last two seasons, Olympiacos Piraeus starts a new era, while looking for the same fantastic results. Olympiacos comes off a dream season in which the team rallied from 15 down in Game 5 of the playoffs to get to the Final Four, held mighty CSKA Moscow to just 52 points in the semifinals and broke the 100-point mark in the title game against Real Madrid after trailing by 17 points early. Kostas Sloukas, Vangelis Mantzaris and Dimitris Katsivelis should have bigger roles next season and the Reds have already added Brent Petway and Cedric Simmons for a new-look frontline. Read more here.

Group D


Panathinaikos Athens has been among of the most active teams in the early part of the off-season market. After coming within one win from reaching yet another Final Four last season, the Greens have brought back fan-favorite Antonis Fotsis and re-signed Best Defender Trophy winner Stephane Lasme, power forward James Gist and scorer Ramel Curry. Moreover, Panathinaikos has landed talented prospects Vladimir Jankovic and Nikos Pappas to add more depth to its roster. And management continues working to keep its main core of players, which of course should include former Euroleague MVP Dimitris Diamantidis. Coach Argyris Pedoulakis hopes to lead the club to even better results next season. Read more here.
