Euroleague Basketball seasons

The Turkish Airlines Euroleague 2010–11 was the 11th season of the modern era of professional Euroleague Basketball, and the first under the title sponsorship of Turkish Airlines. Including the competition's previous incarnation as the FIBA Europe Champions Cup, this was the 54th season of the premier first-tier competition for European men's clubs.

The format featured 24 teams, beginning with Game 1 of the first qualifying round on September 21, 2010, and culminating at the Final Four in the Palau Sant Jordi, Barcelona.[1] It was won by the Athenian club Panathinaikos (6th title), who defeated Maccabi Tel Aviv in the championship game of May 8, 2011.[2] Mens Sana of Siena, competing as Montepaschi after the name of their principal sponsor, finished 3rd by holding off Real Madrid in the third-place game.[3]

At the individual level, the season was marked by Dimitris Diamantidis of Panathinaikos. Not only did the Greek point guard lift the trophy for the third time in five years and receive the Euroleague Final Four MVP award, but he also became the first player ever to win three end-of-season awards: Euroleague MVP, Euroleague Best Defender, and All-Euroleague First Team.[4]
