B as in bad?  Looks like it to us.  Unicaja returns after flirting with relegation and scooping up Fran Vazquez; Montepaschi Siena lost half of their team to Fenerbahçe Ülker; Alba Berlin was giftwrapped a wild card; Asseco Prokom narrowly escaped financial collapse and extinction during the offseason; and Elan Chalon-Sur-Saone is…well…French.

Is Maccabi going to run through this group?  Two of us think so, while one smells a resurgence in Malaga.
