Building a Champion - The general managers know what it takes

Every year, thirty-two teams start the season in the Basketball Champions League with one common goal: to win a championship.

Some have more realistic dreams than others but if we have learned anything from the likes of MHP Riesen Ludwigsburg and Antwerp Giants reaching the Final 4, or San Pablo Burgos journeying from the Qualifiers to eventually becoming champions, the BCL is a competition where anything can, and regularly does happen.
