    They can become German's powerhouse in common seasons but I don't think that they can become as good as Barca, Olympiacos, Panathinaikos and other ball teams which are mentioned here. The biggest reason of that - there aren't very much German local players whho could succesfully play in Euroleague level. For example, Spain has many good local players so teams like Real, Barca.

    Why is that? There're no foreigners limits in EL you know and quite open system in Germany (7 or 8 foreigners allowed with no difference are they from EU or US), so you can build a decent team with that

    There are a lot of young german talented players that could supplement top level foreigners. Robin Benzing, Tibor Pleiss, Tim Ohlbrecht, Luca Staiger, Elias Harris to name a few.

    Tell me, what are limits of foreign players in Bundesliga? Imo, any team needs good local players if they want to reach something...of course, they could make smth like Macabbi made. However, I don't believe that they could reach that level like Barca and teams like that.

    Best German players are already owned by other Germany powerhouses
    By the way, Tim Ohlbrecht and Lucca Staiger seemed very interesting in friendly games of German NT.

    As Benzing said (that is my source) this year the rule is 5+7 and from 2012 on it will be 6+6 in the German BBL.

    When you have money you can buy players.

    I consider Benzing, Pleiss and Harris, better than Ohlbrecht and Staiger. Besides I only mentioned a few, there are more talented players. Thank you St.Dirk

    Germany has talented generation right now but they won't become highest level players if they can't get a chance in their teams. However, in my opinion Germany just doesn't have that good local players if they want to become Euroleague's powerhouse - to play in Final 4 and things like that.

    sounds like an amzing project (ecpecially as a bayren fan).
    at the past few years israel had few teams that have "big name" from football trying and create big team in basketball. it was not a long time ago so we can't look at this in prespectives.
    how do you estimate the general level of "pro a" league?

    Uli Hoeneß talks about plans for the future.

    Next year, they plan to have a 6-8 Mio Euro budget which wouldn't be a problem for them from the financial standpoint. He also mentions "Audi" is interested in becoming a main sponsor and that a lot of other sponsors are interested.

    Nice project and a nice read.

    Players aren't an issue. As Qiang said, St.Dirk obviously managed to bring some kids into basketball, Rome wasn't build in a day, but with few seasons of patience given responsibility under the right coach they can become cornerstones for a top team - that still takes time though.

    I got through all the reading, reminding myself just how bad I've become with my german

    Bayern Munich manages to win the match vs second ranked Würzburg and is now leading the standings by four wins. So they're most likely qualified for german first league next season.
    The game was played in front of 12.200 spectators in the Olympiahalle in Munich, which sets a new attendance record for the second german league.

    That is very cool. It seems the first phase of their plane worked.

    Breaking into the EL might prove a bit more difficult but Jordi has a hard on for the German market so they might actually make it very soon.

    I hope they do make it actually, because Germany deserves to have a strong basketball team and they have great fans.

    Bayern could try to lure Nowitzki if there's a lockout.

    Is there a download of the game TV broadcast somewhere?

    @arnold Not to my knowledge.

    @all: Bayern München now officially prematurely qualified for playing in the German Beko BBL next season. The issue about Bauermann's double job as club coach and national team coach remains unresolved so far.

    Bagarić could strengthen the Bavarians next season.

    Bayern signs Ben Hansbrough, formerly of Notre Dame. Hansbrough entered the 2011 NBA Draft but went undrafted.

    Hansbrough is a real player. Most NCAA fans don't know that he was the Big East Player of the Year last year.
    I think his game fits real nicely into FIBA rules, he's smart with the ball, great shooter and very very tough.

    Bayern has the highest budget in German Bundesliga! Higher than this one from Borse Baskets Bamberg(Champion, Euroleague-Starter)
