FIBA All-Star Games were all-star exhibition games, which were also known as "FIBA Festivals". The FIBA European Selections won most of the games, with an overall record of 24–5. Besides talent, diversity was also paramount in the selection process, which aimed at allowing several different European basketball schools to be represented.

Most of the players came from the three major European-wide professional club basketball leagues, the top-tier level FIBA EuroLeague, the second-tier level FIBA European Cup (FIBA Saporta Cup), and the third-tier level FIBA Korać Cup. These player awards and all-star games were held from 1964 to 1995, and were replaced by the FIBA EuroStars, in 1996. FIBA EuroStars was then replaced by the All-EuroLeague Team, in 2001, which also honors the top European Selection of players, but does not include an all-star game.
