1985 - 1988

In 1985, PAO classified 3rd in the league, Stergakos, Ioannou, Vidas, Andritsos, was the key players, and Koroneos who left the next year. The balances have now changed and Panathinaikos ceases to be a leader and is limited to a secondary role. Nevertheless was an appreciable opponent. In 1986 he made the surprise and exlude the powerful Aris from the the Greek Cup in the semifinals. In the final Panathinaikos won the Olympiakos. That was the last title until 1993. Over the next 2 years ranked 5th after many years.

1989 - 1992

In 1988 permitted the use of foreign players in the league and Panathinaikos acquire Edgar Jones from the NBA. He was a capable shooter, scorer and rebounder and for the next 2 years was the star of the team. The PAO caused significant wins over the protagonists teams but refrain from discrimination. The next two years, Antonio Davis who made a great career in the NBA replaces Jones in the lead of the team stats. Panathinaikos had acquired the most talented young players Alvertis, Economou, Myriounis but is experiencing its worst period in its history since the 7th position in 1991 drop to 8th in 1992 and left for the first time ever outside Europe.

Return to discrimination 1992 - 1995

Nikos Galis was the captain of the rebirth of the team. With his effort Panathinaikos became a strong team, capable to claim all the titles, but his retairment during 1994-95 season, deprived the opportunity to gain a major title.

1992 - 1994

In summer of 1992 attempted a full reconstruction to Panathinaikos. The top Greek basketball player Nikos Galis gained from the group and flanked by the stars Stojan Vrankovic, Tit Sokk, Arian Komazec leads the PAO in winning the Greek Cup and the loses Championship final, although he had the home advantage. The next year 1993-94 Nikos Galis, Alexander Volkov and Stojan Vrankovic led Panathinaikos to third place in Europe for the first time in team's history and despite this deemed success in Greece failed to make out.

1994 - 1995

The 1994-95 season started with the best conditions and the acquisition of Panagiotis Giannakis and Žarko Paspalj. PAO was the favorite for all titles. Excluded from Greek Cup Olympiakos in a very tough game before the start of the Championship. Nikos Galis the player that led PAO against the cup game against Olympiakos and in the decisive game for the Euroleague qualifiers left the group after the first games for the Greek Championship. So despite PAO made great games he only managed to retain third place in Europe and compete in the Greek Cup final.

European, Intercontinental and Greek Champions 1996-1998

The three years 1996-98 was the period when Panathinaikos won consecutive the European Championsip, the Intecontinental cup and the Greek championship thus fulfilling the all objectives set.

1995 - 1996

The expectations had now risen high on the team Panathinaikos was imperative to obtain a significant title. In the summer of 1995 acquired Dominique Wilkins, one of the top Americans who played in Europe. Coach was Bozidar Maljkovic. Together with Giannakis, Vrankovic, Alvertis, Patavoukas compose a very experienced team and the became in Paris, European champions, an unprecedented success for a Greek basketball club. In April 1996, at the Final Four (F4), Panathinaikos was the first Greek team to win the European Championships (now called the Euroleague), beating FC Barcelona in a unique tournament final, by a score of 67-66. In Greece, the exodus of Dominique Wilkins in the final of the league led Panathinaikos to a painful defeat.

1996 - 1997

The next season, the Maljkovic remove all the stars of the team and trying to assemble a team of total. With the start of the season PAO crowned Intercontinental Champion prevailing by 2-1 wins in a 3 game series over Olimpia de Venado Tuerto, South American champions. But the refreshment of the team failed and Panathinaikos fail to participate in the Final Four to defend the European title. In the championship placed 5th losing the right to participate in the Euroleague next season so the only title that would be an ideal target to overcome the crisis, was the Greek league of the next season.

1997 - 1998

Lefteris Subotic assume technical leadership and convince the Dino Radja be downloaded to the PAO. Byron Scott and Fanis Christodoulou accompany the great movements and with the help of Alvertis, Economou, Koch won the league in Greece after 14 years. In the Greek league Panathinaikos has a striking appearance and presented the players determined not to let another chance for the title to lose.

1999 - The championship inside SEF

Important proved for Panathinaikos the period 1998-99 as Olympiakos who earned the home advantage was prepared to return to the top. The championship was the last race of the playoffs and Panathinaikos won away against the Olympiacos noting one of the most decisive victories. Panathinaikos, not only kept the title but led Olympiakos to a process of renewal and reconstruction which failed for the next yers.

Obradovic era - The recognition in Greece and Europe

The advent of the Panathinaikos Zeljko Obradovic followed with a period of very major successes recognition group and highlighted in one of the strongest in Europe over time.

2000 - 2002

The first thing that made Obradovic was to adapt Panathinaikos to Dejan Bodiroga the player on which based whole team of PAO. Bodiroga was the absolute leader of Panathinaikos. PAO won 3 consecutive championships in 1999, 2000, 2001 and competed 3 times in a row to European champion final (2000, 2001 (Souproleaguea), 2002) of which he won the 2 (2000, 2002 in the Euroleague). Failed to conquer Greece Cup even though he played in two finals. Radja, Rebrača, Rogers, Middleton, Alvertis, Kutluay were some of the players who excelled in this space. The dominance in the Greek league was suspended in 2002, the year that won the 3rd European Championships at the end of which there have been significant changes, starting with the withdrawal of Bodiroga and the necessary renewal that was compelling.

Euroleague 2000

Euroleague 2002

2003 - 2009

The 2002-03 season Obradovic had to return Panathinaikos to the top of Greece starting a from new basis. It achieved its objective after the next 7 years he won 6 doubles and 2 triple Crown creating an empire. Panathinaikos radically changed the style of hos the game after replacing Bodiroga. The game summary of the Serbian athlete was replaced by an unprecedented model of team game that proved to represent the absence of a super star. Players such as Lakovic, McDonald, then Alvertis, Diamantidis, Hatzivrettas, Scepanovic, Batiste and later Spanoulis, Siskauskas, Jasikevicius, who played for the overall success of the team. The PAO thus became a mechanism to win titles which have never been irreplaceable player and the distinction was identified with the group.

Euroleague 2007

At the 2007 Euroleague Final Four, which was held on its home court of OAKA in Athens, Panathinaikos became the European Champions for the fourth time, beating the defending champions CSKA Moscow 93-91 in the final.
