Perennial Serbian champion Partizan mt:s Belgrade is a proud club with a brilliant fan base that turns every Euroleague game into a celebration of basketball. Partizan comes off a season that finished on a great upswing. With the youngest roster in all of 2012-13 Turkish Airlines Euroleague, Partizan had its share of downs and fell just short of qualifying for the Top 16 after an overtime loss in a do-or-die away game against Brose Baskets Bamberg. However, the young team grew as the season progressed, and eventually won its sixth Adriatic League crown in seven years with a title game win over archrival Crvena Zvezda Telekom, and conquered its 12th consecutive Serbian League title after downing Zvezda 3-1 in the best-of-five finals. The long-standing king of Serbian basketball, with its legendary coach Dusko Vujosevic at the helm, Partizan once again looks to build on its domestic success. Founded in 1945, Partizan started to make noise in European competitions in the late 1970s, when Dragan Kicanovic and Drazen Dalipagic led the club to consecutive Korac Cup titles in 1978 and 1979. Vlade Divac and Zarko Paspalj helped the club reach the 1988 Euroleague Final Four and lift the 1989 Korac Cup trophy. In 1992, Partizan won the club's first – and to date only – Euroleague title by downing DKV Joventut 70-71 on a miraculous buzzer-beater by Sasha Djordjevic, which ranks among the most amazing shots in basketball history. At home, Partizan remained a dominant force by winning cups and titles at a steady clip. The club returned to the Euroleague Final Four in 1998. In recent years, Partizan has managed to develop players while remaining fully competitive. Some of the best big men in European basketball, including Nikola Pekovic, Aleks Maric, Kosta Perovic, Jan Vesely, Novica Velickovic, Milan Macvan and before them, Dejan Tomasevic, Nenad Krstic and Predrag Drobnjak, played for Partizan. Success turned the team from contender to Euroleague giant. Partizan registered three consecutive playoff appearances between 2008 and 2010, the year in which the club reached the Final Four for the first time since 1998. Maric, Bo McCalebb and Vesely helped Partizan top Maccabi Electra to reach the Final Four. Once at the big event, Partizan became the first team to lose both its Final Four games in overtime, but its fans set a new standard for devotion with their support throughout the season and especially at the Final Four games in Paris. In 2010-11, Partizan used four regular season home wins to make it to the Top 16 before bowing out. The following season, the club saw two of its streaks come to an end, after failing to make the Top 16 for the first time in six years, as well as relinquishing its Adriatic League crown to Maccabi. However, Partizan still won a double-crown in Serbia before a roster overhaul and the return of Coach Vujosevic. Now, on the heels of another successful season at home and loaded with top young talent that has a full season under their belt, Partizan comes back with the bar set a little higher, eager to delight tens of thousands of fans that treat basketball – and the club – like a religion.
