We know newpapers write boring articles about Euroleague and the other European cups. We know marketing is working to destroy the game, but now we have – every 10 days – The Cigarafterten European Basketball Power Rankings, something newspapers and marketing will never undertand.

🏀 01 REAL MADRID – With a 20-7 record and the 1st postion in Liga ACB standings, Real Madrid can focus on Euroleague playoffs, where they will meet Darussafaka Istanbul. Othello Hunter is a man could be important in these weeks.

🏀 02 CSKA MOSCOW – we hope you already read our CSKA – Baskonia Round 1 Preview.

↗️ 04 FENERBAHCE – The team has been build to win TBSL and Euroleague. I think the yellow & black can go close, very close to get both targets,
