NBL and Filipino Australians
After witnessing the oddity of last night - a majority away crowd watching our Boomers play at home - it reminded me of how passionate Filippinos are about basketball. It is one of only two countries in the world where the game is the national sport.
We have many Filo-Aussies in this country yet in terms of NBL they have been ignored. While LK is focusing on pie in the sky things like China, India and AFL this group has been ignored.
To have such a basketball mad group in Australia be completely ignored and not engaged with by the NBL goes to show what a non-effort the league has done to try and exploit a group of people who already love the game.
Are there others who feel this way? Untapped potential even in the new LK era. Do something.
