Really good game, tense finish and well contested throughout. Great to see the level of passion and energy in some of the players (like MBA).
Also fantastic to see a top quality game getting onto the BBC/red button. They’ve been very unlucky with some of the games shown in the past, but this was a real advert for the league, on one of the better opportunities to showpiece it.
Very close game. Looked great on tv. Great crowd and some super basketball. Nice to see some faces from the past. Vince putting in 30 years. Junior williams and Nhamo Shire nearly the same and Amaning i recall as a 15 year old at Brixton. Also saw Andrea and Laurent so quite a day for London basketball. Great to watch and overtime always makes it extra special. Well done all.
Very entertaining. So much better than the Cup Final blowout.
Great for Royals to have garnered a Trophy. But everything smacks of another Mersey situation. The numbers just don't seem to add up. I don't see any shirt/courtside sponsors and I don't see a hell of a lot of spectators either. Someone must have very deep pockets...
It's nice that this year's comps will be split, but are Royals sustainable...

chickenbroncitis: a good result to beat the sharks. Hopefully Lions getting rid of that coach will give us a good play off push and put us in the mix with the Eagles and Riders where we should be

ballerman: And there's our problem. You really only care about your own club. The Leicester cheer leader only cares about the competition his team plays in.

Solly: "I thought it was a great day out, and it appeared like those around me (basketball fans new and old) did too. And for the haters, it’s back to proper basketball now… and everything that comes with it… smaller crowds, no television coverage etc. etc."
