The end of the most successful combination of club and head coach in European basketball history came Tuesday when Zeljko Obradovic announced that he will leave Panathinaikos Athens after 13 seasons. Obradovic arrived to the Panathinaikos bench in 1999 and went on to win five Euroleague titles with the Greens, starting in his very first season. The continental trophies they won together are more than any other European club has won since 1978 and two more than any other club has won in the Final Four era, which started in 1988. His five Euroleague titles with Panathinaikos alone would have made Obradovic, 52, the winningest head coach in European history, and he won three more with as many different teams before joining the Greens.
