FIBA EuroStars was an annual event, organized by FIBA Europe, as a showcase basketball game, from 1996-97 season until the 1999-00 season. Commonly considered as the European equivalent of the NBA All-Star Game, the FIBA EuroStars game featured the season's best players from both the 1st-tier FIBA Euroleague and the 2nd-tier FIBA Saporta Cup. Diversity was also paramount in the selection process, which aimed at allowing several different European basketball schools to be represented.
