We are really proud to announce that BallinEurope joined the network of one of the best blogs out there about basketball: the truehoop network by Henry Abbott.
I started reading truehoop back in 2006, when it was not affiliated with ESPN at all. Over the years I got to meet Henry through email and even at a few live events in the US that we both attended.
Every basketball blogger knows about truehoop and Henry Abbott, so we are really part to be a small part of this great thing now.
Right now, the ESPN truehoop network features 24 blogs, all about the NBA and their teams. We are even more excited to be able to join a network that of course focuses on the NBA – with us being the only blog about Europe. It just motivates us and tells us we have been doing the right thing, especially when truehoop readers comment on us joining the network like this:
GREAT move including the “Ball in Europe” blog into the network. With the undeniable influence the Euroleagues have had on the game today, what better way to get the readers of TrueHoop at least some idea of what’s going on with the NBA from that perspective. We all too often have such an insulated mindset with our world in general; TrueHoop is one of the ways many of us keep that from being too much the case with our sports (albeit just from other cities). This will keep us from being too ignorant of what’s going on from a world view of hoops.
