"Sea of colour for opening nights"
Reading Boti's recent article, he says:
THE opening nights for NBL games this week will include a sea of home colour with the league joining forces with its clubs to produce local #Hardball T-shirts.
In Adelaide at Titanium Security Arena on Wednesday for example, 5,000 blue 36ers T-shirts with the league's #Hardball hashtag will be waiting for fans, draped across the venue's seating.
To me, this is a super move which shows the NBL - finally - has management that is knowing what it is doing. We see Perth already do this, and apparently Cairns as well, and it looks great on TV. These are the kind of ways you can add to an occasion, and make the NBL look like a better TV production. We often see this kind of stuff in College basketball, and it makes it look way more atmospheric.
Keep an eye out for it, it's little things like this which make the difference between a pumping NBL and a shoddy looking NBL.
