It was a positive season for Panathinaikos OPAP Athens, in which it confirmed itself as the team to beat in Greece and a tough opponent for everyone in the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague. Panathinaikos brought back Coach Argyris Pedoulakis, kept star playmaker Nick Calathes and had a good balance of sharpshooters with Tyrese Rice and Jimmer Fredette with strong frontcourt players in Georgios Papagiannis, Dinos Mitoglou, Jacob Wiley and DeShaun Thomas. Things did not go as planned early and Coach Pedoulakis was fired in late November and replaced by Hall of Famer Rick Pitino. Panathinaikos went on to gain quality wins on the road against CSKA Moscow and at home against Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul and archrival Olympiacos Piraeus in the Greek derby at OAKA, 99-93 after overtime behind 41 points from Rice. A four-game losing streak before the season was stopped due to the COVID-19 pandemic had Panathinaikos sixth in the EuroLeague standings with a 14-14 record. Back in Greece, Panathinaikos lost to Promitheas Patras in the Greek Cup quarterfinals, however, when the Greek League was canceled, too, the Greens were crowned champions for the 39th time in club history.

A giant not only in Greek sports but also in continental basketball, Panathinaikos stands as the mightiest force in the EuroLeague since the dawn of the Final Four era in 1988, with a whopping six EuroLeague titles won between 1996 and 2011. The Greens first took charge of Greek basketball with 12 domestic titles over a 17-year stretch between 1967 and 1984. After a dry period, Panathinaikos bounced back to become a top team in Europe. In 1996, Panagiotis Giannakis, Dominique Wilkins and Fragiskos Alvertis came together and secured the first EuroLeague title by a Greek team. A few years later, the club started a new streak of league crowns. Panathinaikos lifted its second EuroLeague trophy in 2000, led by head coach Zeljko Obradovic, in Thessaloniki, Greece, with a win over Maccabi Tel Aviv. The Greens won it all again in 2002 by upsetting Virtus in Bologna. It soon clicked again for Panathinaikos as it knocked off defending champion CSKA by 2 points in the 2007 championship game – an instant classic played in Athens. Two years later in Berlin, the Greens put their name on the title once more with CSKA falling by 2 points in another of the most exciting finals in basketball history. In 2010-11, EuroLeague MVP and Final Four MVP Dimitris Diamantidis shined as Panathinaikos turned away defending champ Regal FC Barcelona in the playoffs and then downed Maccabi in Barcelona for its sixth EuroLeague crown. During the 2011-12 season, Panathinaikos lost a tough EuroLeague semifinal and saw its streak of nine straight Greek League championships come to an end. That season also marked the end of the Coach Obradovic era. Panathinaikos was one win away from returning to the Final Four in both 2013 and 2014, but stayed strong in Greece with back-to-back league and cup doubles. In the 2014-15 season, Panathinaikos won the Greek Cup, made it to the Greek League finals and reached the EuroLeague Playoffs for the fifth consecutive season before losing to CSKA Moscow in four games. The Greens returned to the EuroLeague Playoffs in 2016 and lifted the Greek Cup for the fifth consecutive season; however, Olympiacos prevailed in the Greek League finals. Panathinaikos was ousted by eventual champion Fenerbahce Istanbul in the 2017 EuroLeague Playoffs, but shook it off and finished the season in style with another Greek double. In the 2017-18 and 2018-19 seasons, Real Madrid stopped Panathinaikos in the playoffs, but again the Greens bounced back to take two more Greek League titles; its 27 Greek crowns are more than double any other club! Last season. Panathinaikos was 14-14 in the EuroLeague and led the Greek League standings at 18-2 when both seasons were canceled. It had a two-win gap over AEK Athens and the Greek League decided to crown the Greens as champions. A competitive Panathinaikos squad is a safe bet again this season.
