References - what they write about us -
"Clearly the masterwork of a fanatic (in this case, some
dude named Marek Wojtera), here where you can learn about clubs like
Cibona Zagreb of Croatia and BC Kalev of Estonia, all on a page with
links galore. There is a search engine for Americans and Canadians
playing in Europe (and conversely, for Europeans overseas), even an
Agents Page (where, if you're a player, you can attempt getting into
a Jerry Maguire scenario), along with the usual collections of
scores and stats. The way navigation is built into the site is
pretty nice, though unfortunately there is no audio or video. The
entire site covers both Eastern and Western Europe, and appears so
diligently maintained you can only marvel at such fandom."
Marcus Sloan - pro player Eurobasket is like the Bible for overseas basketball! You wanna know who signed where, go to Eurobasket, you wanna know what coach got fired, go to Eurobasket, even if you wanna see a hot cheerleader doing the splits at a basketball game... say it along with me, "GO TO EUROBASKET!"
Wall Street Journal "Sure, the NBA has started canceling games,
but who misses Michael Jordan and the Bulls when there's Dejan
Bodiroga and Panathinaikos Athens to root for? If those names don't
ring a bell (and unless you're an NBA general manager, they
shouldn't), then it's to check out this site, which keeps tabs on
the pro competition in Europe, Latin America, Asia and Australia.
Within click, you can learn about the leading scorers in Malta, the
tough rebounders in Luxembourg and the best foreigners ever to
compete in the IBA (Israel Basketball Association). There are also
links to teams and leagues in other parts of the globe, as well as
an "Agent's Page", which aspiring Jerry Maguires can to
locate potential clients competing abroad."
