Announced by Ernie Duncan on Twitter about an hour ago, looks like a team of former AE players will be playing in TBT this summer. Will be named America Beast.
I don't want to sideline this thread, but because we went here: What's he been up to? Did he latch on anywhere this season? Other plans?I know Malik Ellison is on that team.
All I really noticed was that he started a basketball training business. Where he did one on one training with I think kids through high school.I don't want to sideline this thread, but because we went here: What's he been up to? Did he latch on anywhere this season? Other plans?
Anyway, I actually watched TBT last year, what with the dearth of sports and some recognizable names. Pretty pumped to see the AE guys take up a squad. Get paid, AE!
Yeah, you often see a lot of guys come over who play in Europe enter the tourney. In fact, one of the traditionally stronger teams is assembled almost entirely of Americans playing overseas. Joe Johnson (that Joe Johnson) played last year.Are pros eligible to play in the tournament?
Yes, they have been for a while. Many former NBA and high level European players are in it. GCG beat me to it, but Joe Johnson, and a lot of other familiar names. It wouldn't shock me is someone like Isiah Thomas (of Celtics fame) plays in it this year.Anyone know the names yet? Are pros eligible to play in the tournament?
