[written by german blogger Gruebler] The German Beko BBL recently stated that they want to become the second best basketball competition in Europe, right after the Spanish ACB. Nobody would question that the ACB is number one when it comes to the level of competition, success in European competitions and economic strength. But which league is the second best league in Europe at the moment?
Currently, there there is a discussion on the interbasket boards whether the NLB Adriatic League is number two in Europe. As our German league claims this honours for the future, I commented on this topic and decided to post a longer edited version here.
