    Default EuroLeague 2022/23

    With the 2021/22 EuroLeague now concluded it is time to start thinking about 2022/23. The biggest off season interest will be what happens with CSKA Moscow and which new teams enter the competition. Assuming CSKA do not compete, it seems like Valencia and Partizan will join Virtus as the new teams, unless they want another Turkish team and reward Bursaspor for a great season. Not sure any other Spanish team could edge out Valencia, as much as I would love to see Joventut back in the time!

    All the Efes related posts were moved to their thread while the rest were moved to the transfers thread. Levenspiel set up the Efes 2022-23 thread on Monday and had already moved a chunk of the posts there. Don't worry, nothing was deleted.

    It will be interesting to see who will be the new president of the EL. And if they can find any solution with FIBA and the competition schedule. There are now four European cups. It's chaos.

    No way CSKA will participate. All the airways from Russia to Europe are closed. It may take years until Russian sport teams participate in European competitions.

    Teams such as my Joventut who crashed out in the EuroCup playoffs really missed a golden chance this year to make the EuroLeague. When was the last time this many spots were for grabs? I definitely think another Spanish team should be offered a spot, but it will likely be Valencia, regardless of their domestic performance.

    since there is no russian teams for at least one year, its pretty obvious that loser of aba league final will also get a wc, together with valencia, since there is not left even a one more decent team in whole europe..

    All EuroLeague clubs are losing a lot of money, the exact numbers in most cases are unknown and the only exception according to public data is currently ALBA Berlin which is totally self-sustainable.

    If that is true then who is bankrolling Bayern? They'd been portrayed as self sustaining and receiving no money from the football club iirc?

    CSKA agrees to play the domestic games in other countries but I am afraid that their request will be equally rejected.

    2 serbian teams seem too much. I wonder if a Croatian team couldn't be included, also a 3rd turkish team wouldn't have been a scandal.

    Partizan is back where it belongs.

    Judging solely by results this season, they probably didn't deserve to play and wouldn't even qualify if Russian clubs hadn't been suspended, but judging by ambition (at least as long as Obradović is there), history, tradition, fanbase, Partizan stands for everything Euro basketball is all about.

    Which Croatian team? I mean, I would love to see Cibona in Euroleague but they are at the brink of total collapse, their existence is at this very moment is under huge question. As for all other criteria (history, tradition...) they deserve to be in Euroleague, but financial problems and sustainability is beneath every level right now.

    Well, if France and Germany can have two teams, I don't see why Serbia shouldn't.

    I'm totally ok with this and it will be funny to watch 2 Serbians at the same time.

    Many things Partizan lost out of the court when Bartomeu has been head man of Euroleague. 2013-14 we didnt play even qualification, Levski for example does, 2010 Prokom got a licence, despite we played f4, even pots on draw changed this year, theretofore we should be 1st pot, with changing we are 3rd. In covid19 cancelation season, we also lost, because we are 1stplaced in Aba League and we had home court advantage in Eurocup until the end.

    This year it could be to not get a wild card, equally reasonably like we got, in certain sense it back to us what has taken. I expect we ll be at least decent and something more, also to be better than our eternal rival in more regular conditions than those in Aba league. Thanks to clubs who are voted for this decision, Fenerbahce, Efes, Olympiacos, Real, Baskonia, Barcelona and Zalgiris, its nice to be in this company again.

    Congrats you to, 13-14 Euroleague after changing rules during the season, 14-15 after withdrawal of Cibona, 20-21 season cancelation. Formally, this season Crvena Zvezda also got Wild Card, becauce Aba league champions doesnt play authomatically.

    Turkey in this moment can give only 2 high level clubs for EL, all other clubs are below the ladder. Partizan is stronger and with bigger budget then 3rd strongest Turkish club.

    I think this is the right decision.

    Galatasaray and Darussafaka have correct quality, but not much more than that. Additional problem is playing in FCL, also in that competition Turkish clubs are step behind Spannish teams from middle placement.
