Huh? Basketball is a game. A game cannot have a stand.

DO you mean Basketball SA?

Great idea
Have kids shooting big balls into a little springy hoop== Oh hang on, many people have taken this idea
AFL clubs do it so why not 36ers?
Always next year

Not sure if they have an actual stand or stall but Perth always have a presence at the Perth Royal Show. Usually there is a basketball hoop set up to shoot hoops with the Cats players and sign autographs. There's even a Wildcats showbag.

Only sports team I noticed there on the weekend with a stall was the Big Bash side.

Wildcats in Perth are very good are this. 36ers seem to be a lazy organisation?

its all about the resources you put in. Perth have a model (and budget) where this is a high priority. Staff and money is allocated to this type of promotion. And in return more people come to games, sponsors support the club, general public are aware of the brand.

the old you need to spend money to make money is more evident in sport than any other field.

Basketball in SA believes in the opposite approach. Most of SA does. Cut cut cut, and expect perfect results.

Doesn't work, never has, but won't stop those at the top doing it anyway.

There seems to be no money in Adelaide.

They have in past. I think membership sales have been good, therefore the spend is probably not worth the gain.

It's business time, keep the players on the court, in the gym and getting rest.

1 extra game this season, that’s the true goal.

Whereas the Wildcats are really struggling to sell memberships.

36ers, lightning, BSA / local clubs or even BA - just think it would be good marketing opportunity.

ahaha... Yeah, poor old Wildcats, having to really put in the effort to scrape for more memberships!

I've always thought that it would have been great for the Kings to have a presence at the Royal Easter Show here, at least a bloody showbag, but nope... Probably the wrong time of year to actually get something out of it, but it's always good for a bit of exposure... How much can putting together a showbag cost them really?
