Club info

Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv came into the 2016-17 campaign with a star-studded roster and great hopes, but a preseason injury to Quincy Miller proved to be a sign of things to come. The team would go through five head coaches and deal with more injuries and off-court issues in slumping to its worst EuroLeague finish of the century. The EuroLeague season began with a road loss at EA7 Emporio Armani Milan and a home defeat against Real Madrid, after which Coach Erez Edelshtein was dismissed. His assistant, Rami Hadar, took control and promptly led the team to back-to-back wins. A three-game winning streak in November, which included victories over the two teams that would reach the EuroLeague championship game, Fenerbahce Istanbul and Olympiacos Piraeus, gave Maccabi a 5-4 record and a share of fourth place. But that momentum would be short-lived as Maccabi dropped nine of its next 10 games and fell into the league cellar. In that time, Hadar stepped down, his assistant Lior Lubin took his place briefly and eventually Ainars Bagatskis was hired. Even as Maccabi spiraled downward and out of the playoff picture, the team spirit shined through with victories over playoff-bound teams Darussafaka Dogus Istanbul, Baskonia Vitoria Gasteiz and Fenerbahce, the last of which came in Istanbul on a Sylven Landesberg buzzer-beater. Maccabi ended the EuroLeague season in 14th place with a 10-20 record. Arik Shivek was handed the reins as head coach for the Israeli playoffs.

History

A signature team in European basketball, Maccabi enters every season aiming for greatness. 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 Tal Brody, Miki Berkowitz, 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 title 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 finals 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. The past three seasons have been below Maccabi’s usual standards; though it won three straight Israeli Cups, Maccabi was denied the Israeli crown in three straight seasons for the first time in league history, while also missing the EuroLeague playoffs. That disappointment will fuel Maccabi this year as it looks to shine again at both the domestic and European levels.
