The regular season has entered its final third, and there is a feel that games and victories have an even greater importance. Just ask Olympiacos players. Here is a selection of tweets from around the EuroLeague.
FOLLOW A LEGEND : EuroLeague Basketball Legend Theo Papaloukas joined the Instagram, and the first photo he posted was the one of him in the company of three other Greek basketball greats: Dimitris Diamantidis, Nikos Galis and Vassilis Spanoulis: “Eventually it wasn't hard for me to decide which photo I should post first. It’s an honor for me to be next of the man who made me love basketball, next to people who lived with them happy and sad moments as teammates and we became, through basketball, friends and family”, Papaloukas wrote.
BASKETBALL TEACHINGS: Interested to learn couple of tips about running a fast break, or developing a perfect shooting technique, check out the post of Unicaja’s coach Joan Plaza, or a video about Jaycee Carroll’s shot.
SIGHTS AND SEEINGS: With a throwback photo of the Blue Mosque , Valencia's Tibor Pleiss was celebrating his return to Istanbul, where he played last season with Galatasaray. Walter Tavares was impressed by the natural beauty of Andorra, where Real Madrid went to play a Spanish League game this weekend.
CLYBURN'S TRAINING: CSKA's forward Will Clyburn is EuroLeague’s third best rebounder, and has an average PIR of 15. Maybe this type of training is his secret.
LOOK AT THE BEAR: Carlos Suarez and his Unicaja teammates did not have your usual hotel lobby in Moscow.
TEAM UNITY: Real Madrid was defeated in Moscow, but they are letting everyone know their team spirit remains high.
WINNERS' CORNER: Some of this week's victories felt especially big, like Khimki's last-second win against Unicaja, Bamberg's fourth-quarter romp of Panathinaikos, or Olympiacos' triumph over the reigning champions. Vassilis Spanoulis and his teammates took it to social media from the locker room moments after the game, showcasing how much that 25-point victory meant.
