Ni en la botiga del barca en barcelona las venden.
Ya estuve y no las comercializan.
Wow, it's true. It is not easy to find some ACB merchandising even in Spain. Not to say old jerseys like Gasol's one, just on eBay. I miss a lot a good ACB online shop like NBA's. And an Euroleague shop.

Yes its the one thing the euroleague are far behind on,merchandising,whenever i have been to final four weekends its just ****ty caps and t-shirts with devotion on it.I wish they had the jerseys of all four participants as a minimum!Unlike the NBA where all the teams are NBA franchises there are a lot more issues in Europe where all the teams have individual concerns.The barca vest I have is from when EPI played!!!
NBA is clearly over the limits of merchandising, soon you'll probably be able to buy toilet paper or condoms with your favorite team logo on them. Seriously they have everything, while all Euroleague has is scarfs and caps. It would be more popular, Americans like spending money on good looking things, people wear football and american football shirts without even supporting the team or knowing anything about it. But for us, Europeans, this isn't about looking good, while the uniforms do look good, I think we would want to show support more than looks.
I agree with you but I just want to buy a jersey of the team I support!and I can't.I am sure you have a zalgiris top with sabonis or Maciulis on.All I want is a barca vest with (well I can't think of any current players I admire!)maybe Basile.or no name just the vest.But Barca don't sell them
I think you could just buy FC Barcelona football gear, the basketball and the football teams are identical in colors and basically everything, so if you went to watch a game with say a Barcelona jacket, the logo would be on it, so people couldn't even tell the difference if it's basketball or football gear. I don't know about vests though, did you try eBay?
I agree that they are GETTING there, but not there yet, they have a long way to go to be like Champions League or the NBA.
There's a couple of Australians, who are projected to go in the draft this year if they declare.
Nathan Jawai is currently getting alot of NBA hype at the moment here in Australia. He's been projected as a late 1st round, early 2nd round pick if he declares for the draft. He reminds me alot of Tractor Traylor, but with more athletisism. I wouldn't take him with a 1st rounder. He can dominate in Australia, because he's huge, and the league has a lack of decent bigmen, but he doesn't have any real moves other than overpowering the opposing player, which he probably won't be able to do at the NBA level. At the moment on DraftExpress, he's projected at #30, going to the Boston Celtics. He's listed as 6,10, he's probably closer to 6,8 or 6,9.
Joe Ingles has also had some NBA scouts watching him. He was the NBL rookie of the year last year. He's currently playing for the South Melbourne Dragons, who suck ass, so he's had plenty of oppurtunities to show he can play. He's another case of a guy who'll need work, if he's to stick in the NBA. He can shoot the ball, but he's not all that quick and he can get burned by faster players on the perimeter.
Brad Newly is also another guy who could be a decent player in the NBA. He was drafted by the Rockets last year, but they're kinda heavy in the backcourt, so I don't know if they have any plans on bringing him over anytime soon. He's currently playing in Europe.
Julius Hodge did play in the NBA, and he's currently playing in the NBL. He's absolutly lighting up the place at the moment, if he had of played the whole season, he could be a serious candidate for the NBL MVP. It's still unknown if he'll play in Australia next year, but it looks like he'll have another go at the NBA again, or if that fails, back to Europe, where there's more money.
Nathan Jawai yes, the others no.
