The A1 Basket Blog is back!

Dear readers and basketball fans, 

We hope that some of you did notice that we didn't post an article in the past year and to be honest this was a good decision after all. The last basketball season never finished in Europe and Greece, and the season that just began is not a typical one. We will try to keep up with the news, avoiding any rumours and gossiping. We are most active on Twitter where we cover most of Greek basketball in English. If you have a friend, friend, or relative playing in Greece you can ping us for extra coverage and news.

Keep playing ball and stay safe.

The A1 Basket Team.
