Overtime episode going viral in the USA

Off-Season NBL Overtime - LaMelo Ball and RJ Hampton Edition Has over 80000 views in two days, hundreds of comments and the NBL YouTube channel follows are going up fast and now the boomers get the W over the USA . NBL already has more people following in the USA than Australia.

How big can the NBL get in the USA?

How big can the NBL get in Australia?

No they won't.
By then High school kids will be able to go straight to g league. Prove themselves over a year and then get drafted.

so of all the great things that the NBL puts out, one of the most awkward, cringe-worthy, borderline unwatcheable media items is the one that goes viral? makes sense..

The NBL didn't know it was getting Lamelo a year ago things can change in the NBA but the NBL can change to, like draft pick next stars.
Overtime will get lots of views this year and I bet James jr is watching amongst others

Arrr what ? I'm a fan of a lot of different sports and I know about it. Do you enjoy other sports?

LaMelo has a big reach young kids love him the more fans he brings in to the NBL the more people will see overtime it’s already happening. All the social media sites to do with the NBL are going up in numbers. I’ve been waiting for this day for 30 years yahoo:)

It's not about overtime it’s about the NBL getting some well deserved recognition for what it has become over 40 years of competition. We all should try and be positive about this it’s a big moment in the history of the NBL

The show has to improve for sure. They should always have a guest player, coach, staff, hall of famed/legends etc.

James Ennis won a ring for Perth, loved it here, and went on to an NBA career.
Yet prior to being approached, he knew nothing about the NBL.

We wouldn't have LaMelo or Hampton without the improved exposure the league has been getting, and they in turn are taking it to the next level. This in turns means more people, and more important people monitoring our league, seeing the quality. If they were to go in the lottery, can you imagine how huge that would be for us?
I don't know if it was even an option, but LaMelo's dad said he didn't want him in the G-League.
Plus, the crazy thing is that "Australia" probably seems like an "exotic" destination to most young guys. (Not realising how similar it is to back home.)

The other thing, is that if you're looking to sell our product to an American Sports network as filler, it is a very valuable market.

So any publicity is good.

Nothing about how many views it's had

And it’s now had 227k views plus the latest overtime video is going up nicely and so is the NBL YouTube substitution everything looks positive to me.

Your very negative towards this subject. To have something viewed 223k times in 5 days is a massive amount and had to be shared multiple times to get to that number as well as the happy birthday melo video with 82k views the blitz video has over 1k and the new overtime video has over 2.8k views plus all of the videos are still going up constantly as well as the NBL YouTube subscribers . All positive stuff I'm beginning to think your just an angry troll

Yeah you make some valid points I think the NBL needs to focus on the young and grassroots to get more fans with melo and rj some older NBL fans seem to be a bit out off by the melo fad . I see a lot more parents not wanting their kids playing afl or NRL so it's a good area for the NBL to start. The NBL is also saying they are going to expand into Asia with up to 4 teams along with a new team in Sydney and Melbourne so maybe it might just keep getting bigger

Name me anyone playing either rugby codes that is shorter than 6ft and ways less than 100 kilos. The afl has a few under 6ft and they are in the very minority. An average afl list height is around 6ft 2", 188cm and weight is also averaging around 90 kilos, these sizes certainly don't fit the average joe blow.
