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.
