I agree and even ALBA are rubbish, the german teams have great fanbase they fill up their stadium so there is potential but so far they have not produced it so until then they should be at best in the uleb or europa cup or whatever it's called this days.ALBA where in it last year and with the final four being in Berlin you'd think they'd have a crack at it(even though getting to final four would have been near impossible)but they didnt even get close!did they even make top 16?

ALBA did make top 16 but they got steamrolled in the top 16. Sort of the same level as a club like Roma to be fair about it. Yet Roma does not have an amazing fan base like ALBA does. And yet Roma has a contract, even though those Italian teams other than Siena have not done jack in years.

And yes ALBA itself is mediocre. With all that fan support they could not even beat EWE in the German League or win in the top 16. I also don't see them winning the Eurocup. I think the two best teams in Eurocup are Panellinios and Valencia, but then again with that fan base ALBA has you never know.

So yeah ALBA is mediocre but if a German team needs to be there it should be them. But like I say they are about the same level as a club like Roma, yet with much better fans and Roma has a contract?

Hell, ASVEL has a contract for crying out loud. ULEB is crazy. Why the hell would clubs like ASVEL have a contract over clubs like Aris or Khimki? I mean seriously the system is just stupid.

No, I don't think they have a contract. As far as I know none of the Adriatic clubs have a contract. Not even Partizan. The reason none of them have a contract is because they cannot pay the contract fee. I believe the contract fee is 5 million euros every 3 years. No Adriatic club can afford that. Olimpja is just always in Euroleague because they have no competition in Slovenia and they get a spot there and also because Adriatic in the new system gets spots also.

well maybe they should consider taking off that spot from the slovenian champions until their league or atleast their main team is stronger.Make them have to qualify against orleainse or whatever.
