Dribbling on Rock Bottom - Nov 13, 2012

Binbin's Articles

Peter Van
George Patton once proclaimed that success is how high you bounce up after you hit rock bottom. If Patton was right, then Dutch basketball is in a solid position to be successful in the near future. You see, there are quite a few reasons to believe Dutch basketball has indeed hit rock bottom:

This coming season will mark the first year in a long time that no Dutch team will participate in any of the European Cups.
No team has established a consistent track record of developing and offering opportunities to talented players.
All teams in the domestic league are dealing with declining budgets.
The national team programs are at least a generation behind other European countries.
Public interest in the sport is marginal at best. When was the last time a full Dutch basketball game was broadcasted on television?

How did we reach this point? The obvious answer is money. Budgets have decreased dramatically both for the First Division teams as well for the National Team. Also, teams have been signing mostly American import players and not displaying any patience for developing home grown talent. Domestic players fulfill supplementary roles to imports that leave after one season. The National Team is left with players inexperienced in deciding the outcome of a game, leaving Dutch basketball with not enough credible ambassadors.

So what can be done? We have to re-brand the game of basketball. Turn things upside down, start at the bottom and make the basketballs story one about engaging people.
No more than two foreign players should be allowed to be on a First Division team.
Develop domestic talent and make them credible ambassadors for the game. Bring the game to the people and show how much fun it is to participate. Make basketball and experience, not an event.
Prove how the game can bring a positive vibe right into neighborhoods by offering basketball programming on outdoor courts. This should be done at a high frequency by all first division teams and all national teams.
Bringing the game to people, and especially kids, is virtually cost free. The lack of money in basketball can be turned into an advantage if we start doing what we were supposed to be doing all along; make basketball about engagement and participation. People will get excited. This excitement will trickle up and become part of a new foundation for a new brand Dutch basketball.

The trick is to do it collectively. The federation, the teams and all other stakeholders should all work together. After all, dribbling a basketball with just one finger is senseless. You need all five fingers to guide the ball and have it bounce up the way you want it. Especially when youre dribbling on rock bottom.

Van Der Horst number one in Holland for round 4 - 2 days ago

Former international Swingman Dimeo Van Der Horst (197-G/F-91) had a great game in the last round for Amsterdam, receiving a Player of the Week award for round 4. The 25-year old player was the main contributor (19 points, five rebounds and seven assists) to his team's victory, helping them to beat Weert (#8, 0-4), the league's bottom-ranked team 95-83. Amsterdam is placed at 4th position in Dutch Eredivisie. Amsterdam is rather a weak team placed in lower part in the stand...   [read more]

Eredivisie Round 4: Groningen keeps a leadership position - 3 days ago

After 4 rounds played we can already see who rules in the Eredivisie and who belongs to weaker ones. Host teams show no mercy winning all games. The game had a very big importance for second-ranked Groningen as it allowed them to take a leadership position. Groningen defeated 6th ranked Leeuwarden at home 73-56. The game was mostly controlled by Groningen. Leeuwarden managed to win fourth quarter 15-11. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Worth to mentio...   [read more]
