Club info

The 2014 Turkish Airlines Euroleague champion fell on hard times last season as it failed to reach the Top 16 for the first time this century, but Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv leans on a rich tradition and history that will have it seeking glory again this year. Maccabi made a mid-season coaching change and finished the regular season on a three-game winning streak, however that wasn’t enough to overcome the four-game slide that preceded it. The team continued its positive momentum with wins in the first two Eurocup games it ever played, but another losing streak kept the team from the eighthfinals. Despite the disappointing results, Maccabi did sign playmaker Gal Mekel and now with a full pre-season training under his belt, he could be a force for the team this season and in years to come.

History

Two years removed from its most-recent Euroleague crown, Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv is back with a new look, but the same competitive spirit that has made it the biggest club in Israeli basketball and a signature name in the Euroleague. Over the years, Maccabi has relied on the tried-and-true formula of complementing the best Israeli players with talented, committed stars from abroad. Players like Miki Berkowitz, Tal Brody, Motti Aroesti, Kevin Magee, Doron Jamchy, Earl Williams and Aulcie Perry and more recently Sarunas Jasikevicius, Anthony Parker and Nikola Vujcic belong to the elite of all-time European basketball greats. Maccabi won its first Euroleague title in 1977 and did so again in 1981 with Berkowitz as the big star. Maccabi had to wait until 2001 to lift the SuproLeague trophy, which broke a string of five continental final appearances that ended the wrong way. The next title came soon after; Derrick Sharp’s miracle three-pointer to survive the 2004 Top 16 has become one of the classic shots in basketball history and simply unforgettable for any Maccabi fan. Once in the 2004 Final Four, Maccabi turned to record breaking with an outstanding 118-point title game performance to batter Skipper Bologna. The next year Maccabi became the first team to repeat as Euroleague champion since Split in 1991. Jasikevicius, Parker, Tal Burstein, Maceo Baston and Vujcic, coached by Pini Gershon, became a classic lineup in European basketball history. Maccabi got back to the Euroleague Championship Game for the third year in a row in 2006, but CSKA stood in the way of a three-peat. CSKA remained a thorn in Maccabi’s side, downing Maccabi in the 2007 playoffs and 2008 title game. Maccabi did not return to the Final Four again until 2011, when it got past Real Madrid in the semifinal, but Panathinaikos prevailed in the championship game. After playoff losses in 2012 against Panathinaikos in a series for the ages, and against Madrid a year later, a David Blatt-coached yellow-and-blue reversed the trend in 2013-14 with several dramatic late-season wins to climb to the top of Europe. Maccabi overcame CSKA Moscow in the semifinals and Real Madrid in the title game to bring the trophy back to its passionate fans. A brilliant campaign also saw Maccabi win the Israeli League and Cup before coach Blatt left. However the past two seasons have been below Maccabi’s usual standards; though it won back-to-back Israeli Cups, Maccabi was denied the Israeli crown in back-to-back seasons for the first time in 50 years, while also missing the Top 16 last season for the first time this century. That disappointment will fuel Maccabi this year as it looks to shine again at both the domestic and European levels.
