my name is Manuel und I’ve been around the german basketball scene for more than twenty-five years now. For some years I was a writer for Eurobasket.com (2007-2011), and was co-hosting the only weekly german basketball radio show back in 2009/2010.
There are many decent blogs and fan forums that cover german basketball very well. Without a doubt schoenen-dunk.de is the number one fan forum in Germany offering very good insight of what is going on in german basketball. There are a couple of nice Blogs like gruebelei.de. And for sure Basketball.de is a helpful source.
But unfortunatly all of those pages are in german!
So if you can’t read and understand german there are now and then some good articles on several pages, and the german section of Eurobasket can keep you updated, but there clearly is a lack for english pages that cover german Basketball a little more detailled.
When I talk to import players I often wonder how uninformed they are about what’s going on in the domestic german leagues. E.g. the foreigner rule in germany’s second division that says that two domestic player need to be on the court at any time was something most of the guys I talked to never heard about.
So I decided to start a blog that tries to fill this gap and provide some insight views on german basketball for all who are interested, but can’t read german.
So, I hope you will like and appreciate our site!
