Hey Basketball freaks…
my name is Manuel und I’ve been around the german basketball scene for several years now. I’m a writer for Eurobasket.com and was co-hosting the only weekly german basketball radio show.
There are many decent blogs and fan forums that cover german basketball very well. Without a doubt schoenen-dunk.de is the number one fan forum in germany offering very good insight of what is going on in german basketball. Lately an excellent blog has been released: schoenen-dunk user Gruebler, whose posts are always a pleassure, started his own blog gruebelei.de, that soon became a mandatory reading for everyone who is interested in german basketball.
Unfortunatly all of those pages are in german!
So if you can’t read and understand german there are now and then very good articles on several pages (e.g. in-the-game.org), and the german section of Eurobasket can keep you updated, but there clearly is a lack for english pages that cover german basketball detailed.
Now and then I talk to import players and I often wonder how uninformed they are about what’s going on in the leagues. E.g. the new rule in germany’s second division that says that two domestic player need to be on the court at any time was something most of the guys I talked to never heard about.
So I decided to start a blog that tries to fill this gap, giving some insight views on german basketball for all who are interested, but can’t read german.
I’m not sure wheather I can keep this page updated daily just like Gruebler does, but my aim is to update this page at regular intervals. For daily news and transactions I still recommend you to check out Eurobasket.com. But at least once a week I will give a review about what touches the fans and what is going on in the german basketball scene.
So, I hope you will like and appreaciate my work.
