Another thread has all the imports listed and a few other signee's as outlined above.

As anon points out, there will be a flood of NBLers sign up to steams within the next 1-2 weeks with the impending announcement of the One HD TV deal.

Was hoping to go and watch some games, but nothing scheduled for Saturday? Might be good for One but won't be good for bums in seats.

This tournament will showcase the most amount of basketball talent ever put together in one event in Australia.

Shame no one in Adelaide is aware of it and they'll be lucky to get 100 people a day going to watch it.

Nutwork,

It is school holidays and Saturday I assume is to not interfere with 1HD's AFL Coverage! (And just by chance the Central ABL)

Anyone know what the walk up entrance price is per day?

30 dollars a day. However it's a little annoying that it costs the same on the last day when there is only one match.

This is a good start.

We all want to know the rosters of each team.

yeah... being a lil over a week from tip off you would think more promo would have been done other than a couple facebook pages and rosters would be finalised by now... and they wonder why NBA wouldn't give them permission to use their logo in support!

Supposedly most of the rosters are filled with NBL players but they were a) waiting for the NBL to also sign with One HD and b) are intentionally dragging out the announcements for maximum publicity.

Sales so far are apparently pretty low - won't look all the smashing to have an empty stadium on the broadcasts.

I assume that is a joke?! Ever heard of the Sydney Olympics, for starters?

This tournament has been very poorly organized I don't care what the insiders try to claim that its for max publicity or whatever because its not having that impact on the fans or even the players who don't know wtf is going on.
These amateurs will have a lot of feedback to digest after the event if they hope to have any credibility with how it has been organized.
Still no roster or anything and that was due out on Friday.

love how a business which is losing money is the major sponsor for something that will be lucky to even pay for venue hire

How are working people supposed to see these games? What ridiculous schedules. They can't possibly get many people going regardless of it being school holidays. I can't find any pricing schedules anywhere. Can someone direct me to it? Can you buy tickets for individual games or do you have to buy a whole day package. Considering a working person might be lucky to get to 1 game on any given day, its a bit expensive at $30 per day to see one game only.

EC, while Working Families are the back bone to this bloody great nation of ours Working Families are entitled in most instances to holidays and due to school holidays arriving in the fullness of time I make no apologies for suggesting Working Families are able to attend.

Anon #272480, I won't argue with you, I will just wait and see how many working people take holidays for this event by the attendances.
