Our favorite plays diagrams from EuroLeague Final Four teams FC Barcelona, CSKA Moscow, Anadolu Efes Istanbul and AX Armani Exchange Milano.
Just as we did with the Basketball Champions League, Basketball Africa League and WNBA recently, we have again assembled TeamFastModel contributors, both internationally and U.S.-based, to cover the games and share all of their coaching insights with you, our FastModel Family. Tune in to the action from Cologne, Germany as we do what we do best: share beautifully drawn and super effective play diagrams.
The Final Four begins Friday, May 28 at 12pm ET as CSKA Moscow takes on Anadolu Efes Istanbul in the first matchup, followed by FC Barcelona vs AX Armani Exchange Milano at 3pm ET. The final is set for Sunday, May 30 at 2:30pm ET with the 3rd place game preceding it at 11:30am ET.
There are plenty of EuroLeague storylines to keep an eye on, with many of the players and coaches having been involved in this competition in the past with their current team or another, along with those that are at the Final Four for the first time. (Honestly, we wish we could attend in person – for the basketball, of course – but also for the Space Jam: A New Legacy marketing showcase.)
So, with the table set for some exciting basketball between Europe’s elite clubs, all that’s left to get ready for the action is to check out these sets! Shout outs to contributors Kostas Kalogeropoulos and Antonios Kourmoulis for the lovely diagrams – click on their names to visit their Playbank pages with tons of great XsOs. And click on a play below to view frame descriptions and download it to your FastDraw library.
