Yes, since the nz team is pretty much the tall blacks, it would be good to split it and have more young kiwis and aussies ver there.
Lots of kiwis in Europe, aus and in college that are nbl calibre.

Who cares? Just like West Coast Eagles and Fremantle Dockers, one is named after the whole region and one is a city within it. NZ Breakers is fine even if a NZ city team comes in.

Noob...
It's not the west Australian eagles, it’s west coast eagles representing the perth area.
Nz breakers should definatley change name timsuckland since they are situated in Auckland as is Wellington in Wellington.

Yes, they should be rebranded Auckland, to make way for the Wellington Saints and the "South Island Main Landers" or "Mighty Moa"

Is Fremantle not on the coast?

That being said, the Melbourne Tigers and Victoria Titans co-existed.

I prefer shorter names.

Auckland Breakers is shorter then "New Zealand Breakers"

Once Wellington join they have to consider it.

Larry Kestelman will not give Wellington an NBL team - unless Larry goes or Wellington hastily builds a 7,000+ seat arena (good luck with that), the argument will be (as its always been) that there's not enough revenue for it. Sigh.

From what I know, Wellington have never seriously put together a bid to join the NBL.

"It's not the west Australian eagles, it's west coast eagles representing the perth area."

No, it was the West Coast Eagles representing Western Australia as their sole club, and kept that name after they were no longer the sole club.

No reason for NZ to change their name, especially as they played games in a number of NZ cities this past season.

Freo is a harbour so doubt it's not on the coast!

Walsh probably thought he will have the rights for the whole of nz. I can't see Wellington getting a team.

Wellington has been crunching the numbers on a 10 000 seat Arena for years. It's being heavily pushed by Promoters and associated business. Christchurch has had an NBL standard 7200 seat arena for years in Horncastle Arena.

Christchurch and Auckland would be great, a team in the north and South Island.

I think we should have 3-4 team in nz in the long run.

Trouble,is,getting Walsh to,agree, he won't just let all of his market get split
