    If there is any truth in that article I doubt that Serbian clubs would compete in it. They already have Adriatic league, one of the best leagues in Europe.

    Partizan is definitely behind the MBA league and wants to join it as soon as it starts.

    AEK is also interested in joining the league and investing in it. The rumor is that they will be sold and the new owners (who are extremely wealthy) will help in making the new league also.

    Why would this be a rival to the NBA? Americans historically don't like foreign leagues, the only one that gets any play comparable to the local league is the EPL ratings adn that league is leagues beyond the MSL whereas this would be nowhere near NBA quality.

    that makes zero sesne.

    He means rival worldwide I guess. As in two big leagues trying to steal fans from the other.

    I saw the proposal and it's a big deal if it happens. These teams are of major markets that can pay more than the sacramento's, utah's, portland's, even the seattle's of the nba. At one point these teams having more resources available is going to make the euroleague bigger, it's only a matter of time. NBA is a mess, owners were borrowing to pay salaries and could lose less money in a walk-out
