We have an announcement to make: We have started a page on Patreon. Rather than repeat what’s there, here is why we’re asking for a small monthly donation that we can use to do bigger, better and more exciting things over the coming season:

Since Slam and Freaknick started this site way back at the turn of the decade we have covered every Final Four in person since 2010, the Spanish Copa del Rey, Nike Hoop Summits, Adidas Nations and domestic games up and down Europe. We have produced game reports, features, analysis, videos and podcasts from those locations. We’re pretty sure that the best content we can make for you, the reader, listener and European hoops fanatic, is when we’ve been on the ground, in the cityputting the experience and flavour of being in the gym at the centre of our work.

As we say above, since Austin and George came into the fold full time before the start of last season, we have produced 45 free podcasts, which will continue to be free and available every week, published on iTunes, Soundcloud and through our RSS feed.

But travel, accommodation and better equipment cost money. We can make a better podcast, more in-depth and informed articles and a more kickass Euroleague Adventures with a little support from you, our listeners and readers. The more people that sign up, the more we can do.

Thanks for all your support. No sleep ’til Belgrade!

Rob, Austin and George.
