  • 2006/07 Baltic basketball league (BBL) Official Thread

    Baltic league starts today with games in Klaipeda where the local Neptunas will play with Kalev/Cramo from Tallin and in Vilniaus where local Sakalai will try to beat Siauliai.So we will have two group A games today.

    These are BBL groups

    Group A
    1. Barons
    2. Kalev/Cramo
    3. Lacplesa Alus
    4. Neptunas
    5. Sakalai
    6. Siauliai
    7. Zalgiris

    Group B
    1. ASK Riga
    2. Atletas
    3. Lietuvos Rytas
    4. Nevezis
    5. Panevezys
    6. Rock
    7. Ventspils

    3 strongest teams from each group will form BBL I division, others will make BBL II division. 2 best teams from the I division then earn the spot in final four which will take place in Riga. 2 best teams from II division will play play-off games against two worst teams from I division and if they win they will play against 3rd and 4th team of the I division to earn the place in final four.

        Usually the page is www.bbl.net, but for the time being it does not work. Don't ask me why

            I think it will be stronger for sure. I mean there's no doubt that Zalgiris and LR are very strong teams and this year Siauliai is also strong as they were last year and building new arena. Ventspils this year looks more interesting team because they are well prepared that wasn't the case last year when they totally ruined the team's selection before the season. Barons and ASK both increased their budgets and will play in modern Arena Riga where the final four will take place. Both estonian clubs have increased their budgets too and managed to get big crowd in Arena in their recent meeting before the season.
            Valmiera/ Lāčplēša Alus team will play in new Arena too and fans say that the team is the strongest Valmiera ever had (though without Vairogs it'll be difficult for them this year). And also other lithuanian clubs are stronger this year too (there's doubt about Atletas. Their Arena and organisation wasn't really ready for BBL some time ago). But I think that this year league will be much more interesting because the weaker teams are out and I DIVISION games later in the season seems to be very good and tougher even for Zalgiris.

              ok, some Estonian tricks, I see!

              From what I know, in BBL we have some country-specific competences. The Estonians are responsible for the IT issues, Latvians - for financial arrangements and Lithuanians - for the organization. Getting the best from each country

                I think the online from games will be made by lithuanians. It looks similar to the one in LKL page and by clicking it that opens lithuanian web page ''Media Benz Telekomunikacijos'' or sth like that.

                  I know that Lithuanian company is now in the process of making the new format for Fibaeurope.com. Not sure about BBL, but maybe you are right. When I read the recent bbl.net description of Zalgiris in English I realized it was a word-by-word translation from a Lithuanian text

                    Haven't they already learnt that it is not recommended to leave Lithuanians responsible for website design? http://www.mtv.lt/index.php

                        First two games:
                        in my opinion very predictable results

                        Neptunas - Kalev 98:97
                        Sakalai - Siauliai 73:87

                        Tomorrow we'll have Valmiera vs Barons in new Valmiera Olimpic centre, Zalgiris vs Kalev, Panevezys - Ventspils, ASK Riga in arena Riga vs Atletas and TU Rock against Nevezis.

                            The fact is that online statistics and webpage worked very bad for the first day.
                            I hope they'll improve their quality.
                            Today is the first television game- latvian LNT television will broadcast Valmiera/LA game against Barons/LMT from Valmiera Olimpic Centre at 16.00.

                              Also Zalgiris - Kalev will be TV game (ETV will show it).

                              Kalev coaches are blaming refs for yesterdays loss (including phantom foul in last seconds). Kuusmaa even says that the league doesn't have a point if refs will decide the games like they do in lithuania.
