Flamengo's Basketball team is a Brazilian professional team, part of the Clube de Regatas do Flamengo family.

Flamengo is one of the most traditional and successful basketball clubs in Brazil having won the Brazilian National League four times, once as Brazilian National Championship and three times the NBB (current Brazilian League format). The club also won Liga Sudamericana (LSB) in 2009 (I), FIBA Americas League in 2014 and FIBA Intercontinental Cup also in 2014.[1]

Brazil's all time legend Oscar Schmidt had played for Flamengo between 1999 and 2003 being one of the most important players in the club's history.

History[edit]

The red and black basketball team won its first championship in club history in 1919,[2] playing in the state championship of Rio de Janeiro and returned to win the title in 1932. When the third championship was won in 1933, the team was still undefeated. In 1934 and 1935 they won the title again.[3]

Rivalries[edit]

Brasília[edit]

Considered the greatest rivalry in the Brazilian basketball in the last decade, the rivalry between the two teams is also reflected in the fight for sport's recent hegemony in Brazil.[4] The clash marked the finals of many national and international tournaments, and the Flamengo won the decisions of the CBB 2007-2008 and NBB 2009, while Brasília won the finals of the NBB 2009-2010 and Liga Sudamericana 2010-2011.

Franca[edit]

Flamengo also has a rivalry with Franca. These teams decided two consecutive semifinal series, in NBB 2009-2010 and NBB 2010-2011. At the first one, Flamengo won the series by 3-1 with a three-pointer from Marcelinho Machado few seconds from the end of game 4. The following year Franca won the series by 3-0. In game 3 in this series, the point guard of Franca Fernando Penna made a beautiful play on the American forward David Teague. The other players of Flamengo did not like that and started a lot of confusion on the field, intensifying the rivalry between the two teams.
