The number of fans is of 16.2 million followers with engagement of 0.014% of the whole base, in the last months did not grow their numbers with decrease of -0.0039% (almost nothing).

The types of posts the team posts are larger in the video format, most posts are related to game bids, interviews, and other content that increase engagement with the audience. The number of video posts (41) in a month is great, compared to other EuroLeague teams, but this is below Panathinaikos, possibly because it produces a smaller number of content.

The highest number of posts in the week is on Fridays, always reflecting a post game that occurred the previous day, behavior common among all EuroLeague teams.
