Good English-language sources for International Basketball 

Post#1 » by Mr. E » Sat Sep 10, 2016 1:03 am

I've got a request for those of you who are in the know on these things.

Could you list some news sources (English Language) which do a good job accurately covering international basketball?

Also, could you point out some sites which should probably be avoided if you are looking for good coverage?

Thank you all!

some good ones are:

news:

http://www.interbasket.net/news/

forums

http://www.interbasket.net/forums/

news:

http://www.talkbasket.net/

forums

http://www.talkbasket.net/forums/

news:

http://www.sportando.com/en/

news and blogs:

http://ballineurope.com/

http://euroleagueadventures.com/

the best ones though by far are:

total coverage:

http://www.eurobasket.com/

news and blogs

http://www.eurohoops.net/

Then of course you have the actual official websites themselves, which are a great source:

Tier 1 EuroLeague:

http://www.euroleague.net/

Tier 2/3 EuroCup:

http://www.eurocupbasketball.com/

Tier 2/3 Champions League:

http://www.basketballcl.com/

FIBA:

news:

http://www.fiba.com/

stats:

FIBA Europe:

http://www.fibaeurope.com/

FIBA Americas League:

http://www.ligamericas.com/en/

Some national domestic leagues also have English based websites:

Adriatic League:

http://www.aba-liga.com/

VTB United League:

http://www.vtb-league.com/en/home/home.htm

Greek League:

http://widgets.baskethotel.com/site/esake/

Israeli League:

Turkish League:

http://www.tblstat.net/

Of course the Australian League is in English also:

http://www.nbl.com.au/


Basically, for European basketball, sites like sportando.com, eurohoops.net, eurobasket.com (the most comprehensive for all European and international basketball), euroleague.net, eurocupbasketball.com, fibaeurope.com, and basketballcl.com should more than cover anything you need to know.
