The Final Four 2023 in Kaunas, Dubai Basketball and all the changes in the Basket League

Published

on

The EuroLeague is considering expansion into the United Arab Emirates and is hoping for a major sponsorship. What about the Final 4 2023 in Kaunas, but also the change of the Basket League to improve? All of this was discussed by Pantelis Diamantopoulos and Spyros Kavalieratos on Show Must Go On.

The Bertomeu era is over and EuroLeague shareholders are preparing for moves that will change the status of the competition. One of these is expansion into the United Arab Emirates, where Dubai Basketball is aiming for a guaranteed contract for the next few years.

Therefore, representatives of the 11 EuroLeague shareholder groups (including Olympiacos and Panathinaikos) will be in Dubai next week to hear and consider the proposal. There is a team that wants to throw money, in Dubai they have thrown sponsorship money on the table and everything is being put on the carpet.

As for the Final 4 of 2023, Kaunas is currently the favorite to submit a candidacy. He’d wanted it for years but Bertomeu didn’t share the same opinion. That also applies to Berlin, but there are also difficulties.

Around 1 million more flow into the box office for the Basket League than state television, and Monday is also set as the match day for Olympiacos and Panathinaikos. What exactly will happen to the foreigners and what are the times of the games.

Hear what Pantelis Diamantopoulos and Spyros Cavalieratos had to say about all the hot topics in basketball news on Show Must Go On.

Giannis autographed his shoes and gave them to his son, Nick Calathes

A beautiful moment for Giannis Antetokounmpo, who signed his shoes and gave them to his son Nick Calathes after the Bucks vs. Magic game, with the Fenerbahce guard thanking him via Instagram.

The Bucks beat the Magic 109-102 in Orlando, with Giannis Antetokounmpo stopping at 34 points. But it was something he did after the fight that had its own meaning.

When the game was over, the Bucks star met up with his son Nick Calathes (who lives in the greater Florida area) and gave him his shoes and even took a picture with Thanasis Antetokounmpo. The Bucks even caught the scene on camera – unaware of the ins and outs of the moment – and Nick Calathes later thanked the Antetokounmpo brothers by uploading a photo of his son with them and writing:I love you! Thank you for making my son the happiest kid!”

One of the outstanding figures in European basketball, Nikola Vujicic becomes the 11th EuroLeague legend. The Croatian center will be honored before the game Maccabi – Valencia (December 8th, 9:05 p.m.) on the 12th day of the competition.

He’s on the world’s radar, now he’s officially becoming a EuroLeague legend. The reason for Nikola Vučić, who has won two cups (2004 and 2005) with Maccabi Tel Aviv and been named a member of the top five of Europe’s leading club competition five times.

The experienced center of Villeurbanne, Maccabi, Olympiakos and Efes, who made 192 appearances in 11 seasons, averaging 12.7 points (56% 2 points, 34.5% 3 points, 69.5% shots), 5.4 rebounds and 2.7 assists is one of the most distinctive personalities in the history of the EuroLeague and will be honored accordingly on December 8th before the start of the national team’s game on matchday 12 against Valencia (08/12, 21:05).

This makes Vujicic the eleventh EuroLeague legend after Theodoris Papaloukas, Juan Carlos Navarro, Ramunas Siskauskas, Sarunas Jasikevicius, Dimitris Diamantidis, Mirsad Turksan, Felipe Reyes, Vasilis Spanoulis, Dusan Ivkovic and Simon Mizrahi.

It is worth noting that although more than 10 years have passed since the Croatian center last played in the EuroLeague, he is still one of the two players in the history of the competition with 2,000+ points, 1,000+ rebounds and 500+ assists. The other person who has achieved something similar is Nick Calathes. The two also share another standout feat as they are the only ones to record a triple-double.
