Is the FIBA based on a real-world league ? --Marc Pasquin 07:39, 14 January 2006 (PST)

Yes, but with different members, mostly. Zahir 08:28, 14 January 2006 (PST)
This proposal is due to expire soon. Any comments or objections? Zahir 20:55, 3 March 2006 (PST)


Are there any reasons for the choice of founding countries ? I'm asking because even *here* basketball is a rarely seen sport being practiced in Quebec (even baseball is more popular and thats saying a lot) and I can't see it being different *there*. While at least I cold understand that being next to the NAL you could have had a few local enthusiasts, other countries (the european one like oltenia in particular) seem like odd choice for founders. --Marc Pasquin 07:55, 4 March 2006 (PST)

I more-or-less based it on the genuine founders then tossed in a few more. It was an ecclectic group, noted (evidently) more for the enthusiasm of the particular fans rather than their actual numbers vis-a-vis their native populations. Zahir 08:00, 4 March 2006 (PST)
Just noticed this. Perhaps Danubian Confederation could be added to the founders list? Basketball *is* the second-most popular sport in the former CSDS after football (and in some places, more popular than football). That suggests that it's been around there for a long, long while.
