Another Spaniard, Jeyx, brings his brand of sports-themed entertainment and Greek comedian Jeremy will deliver the magic of the Final Four to young fans in Greece.

Euroleague Basketball has been working with social media influencers throughout the 2017-18 season in a program called the EuroLeague Creators Project, which is designed to look at the EuroLeague through the eyes of young, online creators with a shared love for basketball.
