Default (Aussies) Foot Locker Elite Classic

Hey,

Have any of you guys heard of this? I was looking at buying Rugby League Tickets, and saw this on the proticket website:

http://www.highstakeshoops.com/

The Foot Locker Elite Classic - High Stakes Hoops is like no previous basketball event in Australia. Eight teams will compete for a minimum total prize pool of $250,000 over a five-day period at the Adelaide Dome. All games will be broadcast live on ONE HD.

Also featuring some other ISH like a "gamebreaker" (4 minutes of 3ptrs worth 4), less timeouts, and apparently Mark Bradtke is gonna be involved, plus other old skoolers.

Anyways, sounds interesting and I'll watch a game or two I think. However, given the lack of funding for NBL (not just this year, but also the occasions when the Newcastle Falcons/Pirates have gotten the boot), I find it amazing that a company will be willing to put $250K prize money on the line, amongst other costs.

I hope to god you didnt buy tickets to that foot locker shit.. I just saw some of it on oneHD...

Aussie bball is shit at best but that "tournament" takes the cake...
Standard 40yo unathletic players, dim lighting, shit court, slow, boring, 3 point love fest...

And a HUUUUUGE crowd of about 100 people

I heard the commentator say it was 10k prize? No way anyone would be retarded enough to put up more than that...

Go to an NRL game u will love it, great atmosphere i go regularly...
