Final schedule will be out this coming week.
I wish Kevin luck. It is hard to put together teams that are not really close together in travel.
Triple-header of games; Detroit vs Boston, Raleigh vs DC, and NYC vs Philadelphia (in prime-time).
Catch it live on the EA Sports online channel. If you miss the live action catch it again on Monday, January 11th on Apple TV and Netflix.
More details to follow...
The league will actually begin playing games in November, which I know coincides with the D-League, but there will be opportunities for teams to bring in additional players later in the year after the Euro leagues and D-League finish their seasons.
The NEBA is not interested in the 38-year-old can-barely-make-it-up-the-court former NBA player as a quick PR boost. We would take a serious look at a player who was in the NBA for a year or two, dropped down or out (injury, etc.), and is seriously looking to remake his career.
We want younger players who didn't make the D-League / NBA and are looking for a place to get exposed to move up, either to those leagues or Internationally. And with players that are already playing Internationally, the NEBA is a great place to get domestic exposure.
We (OK, I) have made a lot of changes to the NEBA Website at http://www.officialneba.com since I took over. Although there are some platform limitations, a tremendous amount of additional information has been added.
By the way, all of our teams have their own individual websites, jointly run by the league and the team owners. They use the same basic template as the main league site. Yes, we will have a link to the team sites up shortly.
What I would like is for you people here at OSC, many of you with extensive minor league sports experience, to take a look at the site and tell me what you think about it (good OR bad) and where and how we could improve it.
