FC Barcelona has more former players in the NBA than any other FIBA club

CSKA Moscow, Real Madrid, Fenerbahce and Olympiakos will compete for the Euroleague crown this weekend in Istanbul. Among the many European powerhouses missing at the Final Four is FC Barcelona, winner of the competition in 2003 and 2009.
