    Well, kind of. Another solution would be fo FIBA to talk with ULEB and NBA in order to bring the EL champs and NBA champs. Still, the NBA may not be prone to accept, as its organization is very different from the federal one used by FIBA.

    How about FIBA maintain the current format of the World Clubs Championship... then have a separate tourney between the EL champs and NBA champs or top four teams of each league... just a thought though...

    Actually at the moment it seems the NBA is closer to being in this tourney than Euroleague. Tentatively penciled in for 2011. FIBA's issues with ULEB is beyond me though.

    I wonder what Puerto Rico is going to do with the America Club League because right now playing the semi finals who ever became champ and runner up are going to be seriously hurt for the America Club League. Reason, many players get contract to play overseas. Last year the runner up Gigantes de Carolina (they are playing right now in the semi finals) were not able to play last year in America Clubs Tournament because half of the team players went to played overseas.

    the Americas Club League is a joke.

    the american team was an All-star team from a semi-pro league, and the dominican team was just a team assembled for that competition, they didn't even play in any dominican league.

    Those are the problems you face when trying to put together an international league between leagues with extremely incompatible schedules and calendars.

    A discussion about the FIFA equivalent made me want to bump this up. Is there any more news about this tournament?

    Also since it's lame to resurrect a topic for only one question, what's everyone's general feel about it? At first I was disappointed that the NBA and Euroleague weren't going to participate, but now I see it as an opportunity to potentially see the pecking order of leagues outside the big two.

    Also how would you improve the idea aside from the obvious NBA and Euroleague inclusion?

    Current roster of teams
    Top 2 Americas teams
    Top 2 Eurochallenge teams
    CBA Champion (right now I want to bet on them )
    Asian Club Cup winner
    Africa Club Cup winner
    Oceania champion (I'm assuming NBL champ)
    Pistons: 2018-2019 In the middle of nowhere

    I'd say:

    2 from Americas League
    2 from EuroChallenge
    1 from African Club Championship
    1 from either Asian Club Championships, or West Asia League
    1 from Oceania
    1 from East Asia (there would have to be a playoff between teams from Korea, China, Philippines and Japan)

    (IRAN)1 from either Asian Club Championships, or West Asia League
    ()1 from Oceania
    (SMART GILAS)1 from East Asia (there would have to be a playoff between teams from Korea, China, Philippines and Japan)

    Does Smart Gilas really count as a club team though? Aren't they the Philippines national team?
