Last Season Information by Euroleague: 2016-17 started a new era in Athens as Panathinaikos took the floor without legendary point guard Dimitris Diamantidis for the first time in a dozen seasons. It would prove to be a rocky start to the season as Mike James was sidelined by injury in the preseason, Argyris Pedoulakis resigned before the second EuroLeague game and later James Gist was lost for four months starting in November. However Xavi Pascual took over on the sidelines and righted the ship. After a four-game December winning streak, which included a victory over eventual champion Fenerbahce Istanbul, the Greens had climbed into a tie for second place at 9-5. Panathinaikos dropped its next four road games to slip back to seventh place with an 11-9 mark, but no team finished the season hotter. Panathinaikos won eight of its last 10 games to place fourth in the league with a 19-11 record; Gist returned during the run to form a mighty frontline duo with Chris Singleton, who was named Turkish Airlines EuroLeague MVP for March. Sadly for Panathinaikos, its momentum came to an immediate end when it faced Fenerbahce in the playoffs. Panathinaikos led by 16 in the second half of Game 1 before Fenerbahce took control with an 8-40 run and never looked back in sweeping the series and putting a cruel end to a promising Panathinaikos campaign.
