Personally can’t see it or the benefit. Magic have a great venue so don’t need Belle Vue and seem to have taken the decision to use the men’s team as development for their youngsters. its not as though there are hundreds of magic fans who would then watch an amalgamated Manchester team in the bbl and make them a powerhouse in that league. From the outside the 2 clubs seem to compliment each other nicely magic as the dominant junior club and giants in the bbl. From a junior perspective the 2 clubs are in opposite sides of the city thus supplying coaching for young kids who might not travel at a young age across the city. Giants have produced some excellent kids who tend to join magic once proven. A bummer for the giants coaches but it does produce an elite Manchester team. Not sure what benefit there would be from an amalgamation I think Sam disagrees it would interesting to get his perspective
I do hope this doesn't lead to a third Manchester club because that's just about the last thing the city needs. I think one unified club would be great for the city but while Joe is the man at Magic there seems to be no interest in pro basketball, while Giants are completely out of their depth. I see no solution.
