FIBA EuroStars

FIBA EuroStars was an annual event, organized by FIBA Europe, as a showcase basketball game, from the 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 European-wide top-tier level EuroLeague, and the European-wide 2nd-tier level FIBA Saporta Cup. Diversity was also paramount in the selection process, which aimed at allowing several different European basketball schools to be represented.

FIBA EuroStars was the replacement All-European Team selection and all-star game of the original FIBA Festival (1964-1995).
