Just a bit of a musing really, how many players have earned a call up to international duty whilst playing in the BBL? I think Matius Sailund of the Flyers played for Denmark, and there may have been a capped player for New Zealand who was briefly at Raiders. Can people think of any more, outside of the GB squad of course? I assume this can only be good for the league, these players will garner at least some attention and make the BBL a wider known thing... I guess!? Thoughts folks?
In 2007/8, Rocks had Bilal Clarance, who I think was a then current Danish international, possibly their captain.
Rocks in 2009/10 had Steve Parillon, who also played previously for at least one other BBL club, who I think was a current and future player for his Caribbean country - Trinidad and Tobago?
Answering GRFD, I very much doubt Martins Malnieks was an International. If he could only get limited time on court in the BBL, he wouldn't be in his national side. Lots of decent players in those Baltic states.
Whilst in MK, Lions had Andrew Alleyne & Victor Payne who both played for Barbados too. I'm sure we also had another player from Barbados but he didn't last very long, he lost his contact lenses on court during a game but never told the coaching staff until the game had ended, his shooting percentage was worse than normal that night(I wish I could remember his name)! Jason Obazuaye(sp!) played for Nigeria although I'm not sure at the time he played in the BBL. Navid Niktash who played for Lions last season is playing for Iran this summer.
2NFR: Hogg could do a lot worse, Sharks on a bit of a roll right now ... could be the top team next season (depends if Attiba stays or not)

brummiedunk: Easy for Raiders: 1) Corletto, Sturt, Dixon, Costelloe (my god, he is a good pg and will be HUGE! I didn't even miss josh 2) Elsewhere? Washington from Riders - class! 3) Who wouldn't? Corletto is a god (You hate us but we don't care!)
