Euroleague and EuroCup 2020 Officially Cancelled.

This is potentially huge news for the NBL.

Could we see Aussies from Europe come back for one season to keep in shape, stay safe before a vacine is developed, ride out the Covid storm while earning lunch money?

The Brandts, Motums, Broekoffs, Maker, Mathiang, Pinder, LANDALE???

The list goes on.

Will opt outs like Kay and Ware return as well as Cotton?

What a turn around, we went from losing top talent a few weeks ago to a potential list of talent that are 'settling' for coming home.

I will watch every Landale game if that comes through.

This is what I said a few weeks ago all the doom and gloom of players like Cotton, Ware etc potentially leaving when the possibility of top tier imports/Aussies from overseas preferring to come here in a "down year" for a paid holiday.

Covid-19 makes Australia a very attractive place to play this league compared to the likes of Italy, Spain, Russia or China.

This doesn't affect the 2020-21 season (yet), except inasmuch as it won't have to be delayed due to a late finish to this season.

Yes 20-21 season is to go ahead, obviously if the virus is in reasonable control.

Are we just randomly listing names of people, or did you have a point you were trying to make?

Jesus you're dim. Unless next years euro leagues are cancelled it's a mute point.

You'd make a great cowboy Loveboy.
