Why doesn't the NBL arrange a tournament with Japan league
With the Japan league acquiring a lot of our assets of late, it seems to be a league on the rise. With their season roughly aligned in timing with the NBL, why don't we have a mid-season tournament where our teams play against teams in a tournament for some large prizemoney. I would rather this than the NBL Cup.
They have a huge potential audience. You saw what happened with the social media clicks when Yudai Baba was involved. Now that they have quite a lot of NBL names, it would be interesting to both sets of audiences, presumably.
