In 2020, Diamantidis was named the best "Greek professional basketball player of The 2010s Decade", by the readers of the Greek website Gazzetta.gr.
At the age of fourteen, Diamantidis started his career with the youth clubs of his hometown team, Kastoria B.C.. Five years later, he made his professional debut with Iraklis, and by 2003, he had emerged as an all-around star in the Greek League. He became a member of Panathinaikos in the summer of 2004, with whom he won three EuroLeague titles, in 2007, 2009, and 2011, last two as captain. Diamantidis' numerous accolades in the premier European competition include a EuroLeague MVP Award, two EuroLeague Final Four MVP Awards, four All-EuroLeague First Team selections, as well as a record six EuroLeague Best Defender Awards. He is the only player to have earned all four aforementioned EuroLeague end-of-season distinctions, even more so in a single year. Diamantidis is the only Greek player who was voted to the EuroLeague 2000–10 All-Decade Team and EuroLeague 2010–20 All-Decade Team and is the EuroLeague all-time leader in steals since the dawn of the Euroleague Basketball Company's era in 2000. On April 1, 2016, he was honored with a EuroLeague Basketball Legend Award.
Amidst a long series of "derbies of the eternal enemies" opposing Panathinaikos and Olympiacos, Diamantidis thrived as he faced Olympiacos every year for twelve consecutive seasons, including eleven Greek League Finals, six Greek Cup Finals, and a EuroLeague semifinal. He won nine Greek League and ten Greek Cup titles, alongside a record six Greek League Finals MVP and a record six Greek League MVP awards, as well as two Greek Cup MVP awards. His friendship and rivalry with Olympiacos star Vassilis Spanoulis was at the center of attention throughout six Greek League Finals and three Greek Cup Finals encounters.

Due to these great individual and team successes, the President of Panathinaikos, pharmaceutical magnate Pavlos Giannakopoulos, signed Diamantidis in 2008, to a 3-year €5.7 million euros net income contract. In 2010, he renewed his contract with Panathinaikos for another 3 years, at €10.8 million euros gross income (€6 million euros net income). On February 21, 2013, Diamantidis became the EuroLeague's career leader in steals.
