Doubt so IRF, itll all be about who gives him more freedom
Both I imagine
Doubt money will be much of a factor at all. He will probably earn a million quid off the back of Love Island and will need flexibility to pursue other projects away from basketball. Whichever team offers him that will be where he signs.
I think you're underestimating your club. The Box makes him look a lot more like a pro than Palace. And if he wants to be a star , his basketball earnings will only be a small proportion of what he brings in.
First time I’ve read this thread because last night some Aston Villa fans in a bar in Spain mentioned Ovie to me. I was commiserating with them after Spurs had “thrashed” them and they asked if I played football and I said basketball. Now usually that conversation goes something like this. Me “I play basketball” Non basketball person “oh. I played that at school once” Me “oh really?” (Feigning interest” Them “it’s not that popular in the UK is it?” Me “sadly not” They will usually accompany the conversation with some imaginary “shots” when they say the word basketball.....you know the type of shot I mean......the kind that everyone who doesn’t play basketball tries when they find themselves with a ball in front of a hoop. If I’m really lucky they may recall watching the Harlem Globetrotters!!
However back to the bar in Spain Them “Basketball? Ovie from Love Island plays basketball! He’s really lovely, really genuine. Nicest guy on the show” Me (proud non watcher of Any celebrity wannabe TV show) “That’s nice” Them “what team does he play for? We were hoping we might be able to catch him at a game versus our local team” Me “errr. Did you play basketball at school then?”
So well done Ovie. Most of these shows are desperate for celebrities now so all BBL clubs should get their best looking, most likeable players front and centre. Even QofS for gods sake! Have you seen that recently? They will literally take anyone who has played sport (probably be a steady stream of net ballers though on their for the next year or so as it’s a really up and coming sport you know........).
As for where Ovie should go...clearly Eagles. He can link up with the Geordie Shore brigade for a love island cross over episode!

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."

severnside: That re occurring theme for last year is wearing a bit thin now. I don't need to defend Mick Donovan and the other decision makers at the Wolves but it was OJ who left mid summer leaving those at the top in the lurch.
