History

1928–1980

The basketball section of PAOK was created in 1928, when Alekos Alexiadis, a young member of the administration council, took the initiative to create a basketball team. He "gave birth" to the basketball department again after World War II. After the war, Alekos Alexiadis began to organize a basketball team from the children that played at the only basketball court in Thessaloniki. The first honor for PAOK was the win of the 1959 Greek League. The team was crowned Champions of Greece, with the following players; Dapontes, Kyriakou, Oikonomou, Paschalis, Stalios, Kokkos, Theoridis, Angelidis, Stergiou, Konstantinidis, and player-coach Iraklis Klagas. Four years later, the Greek League was reconstructed to a professional National League, but PAOK was placed in the Second National Division, winning immediate promotion to the first division the next year. The worst season of the club to date was in 1977, when PAOK avoided relegation, with a 66–53 play-out win over Dimokritos.

1981–1991

PAOK met Panathinaikos in its first Greek Cup Final, in 1982. The Athenians managed to scrape through a two point victory, despite the game being played in Alexandreio Melathron, the then PAOK home ground. The next season the team finished second to Aris, being defeated only in one game by the champions.

The success of both Aris and PAOK fueled the ongoing rivalry between their fans that had long been established in football. In 1984, the two teams reached the Greek Cup Final. PAOK coach, Faidonas Mathaiou, trying to boost his team's morale, ordered the players to completely shave their heads. PAOK won the Greek Cup by four points (74–70), in what is now remembered as the "final of the shaven heads".

The then 22-year old Branislav Prelević, debuted in the 1988–89 season. He became the definitive leader and a fan favorite, often compared to the great Nikos Galis, who was at the time the captain of Aris. Prelević was often quoted for his loyalty to the team. He had a number of injuries and medical emergencies because of weak legs, but he would constantly choose to take heavy dosages of painkillers, rather than missing out on important games.

1990–2000



PAOK brought limitless joy to its fans by winning the European Cup Winners' Cup when PAOK defeated Zaragoza in Geneva 76–72 on March 26, 1991.

The next season PAOK reached the final again but lost to Real Madrid 63–65. The game was going to overtime, as the two teams were equal at 63 points, when Panagiotis Fasoulas lost the ball in the last 2 seconds and the Real players scored an unexpected basket. In the same year PAOK won the Greek League championship, beating out Aris and Olympiacos.

PAOK participated in the 1992–93 European Champion's Cup for the first time and managed to reach the Athens Final Four. PAOK lost in the semi final game to Benetton Treviso, which was led by superstar Toni Kukoč by a score of 77–79.

In 1994, PAOK returned to European success by winning the Korać Cup two-leg final against Pallacanestro Trieste, winning both at home and away by 9 points. The following year, PAOK won the Greek Cup in a 19 point victory against Panionios 72–53. In 1999, PAOK again won the Greek Cup by defeating AEK Athens 71–54.

The new home of PAOK, the PAOK Sports Arena, able to hold 8,650 fans, was inaugurated on 17 March 2000. That marked the end of a long period of time of sharing the home court of Alexandreio Melathron with Aris. Branislav Prelević returned to PAOK after quick spells at Kinder Bologna and AEK Athens, and then quit basketball at the end of the season. He later returned to PAOK in the 2001–02 season, as an assistant coach.

PAOK finished 6th in the 2003–04 Greek League season, boasting a squad full of youngsters. Prelević became head coach and led the team into a short winning streak.

A month after the start of the 2006-07 Greek League season, Prelević was replaced by Kostas Pilafidis and assumed a non-technical position as the General Manager of the team. During a game that year, PAOK and Aris put on a spectacular show that PAOK ended up winning, after two overtime periods.[2]
