There a few weeks ago, I had titled “Gregg Popovich thank you” for all that the coach of the Spurs brought basketball to the American and French both because it is probably a big part of the success of Tony Parker and Team France.
Today is Tony Parker, whom I thank for his redemption Asvel . I state at the outset that I am not a supporter of Asvel although teen,
I vibrated for European exploits Norris Bell and Willie Redden face Kaunas Arvydas Sabonis, and for those of Delaney Rudd and Alain Digbeu to last Final Four played by a French club. But buying Asvel, Tony Parker is not only a disservice to the club at heart, but at the French basketball. He also explains very well.
“I Want To Enjoy The Ultra Positive Wave That Carries the French Basketball Since Our Title To The Euro And Control All Records.”
“Managing files”, it means to be club president and majority shareholder at the local level, but also be a powerful player in the sport, not just as a player. As president of a major club, Tony Parker has a say, and probably influence the future of the Pro A. Moreover, we note that one of his first projects will be to find common ground to build a large room. Parker knows, there is no big club without much room. I might add: “No great country basketball without much room. ”
Build A Large Room
The arrival of Tony Parker could therefore boost the Arenas project was to equip France with large rooms (10,000 seats) for both host the best teams in handball and basketball, but also to allow France to organize major international competitions (European Championships and / or World; Final Four, NBA regular season games).
The takeover of TP also comes as the project PSG Basketball is accurate , and that’s all the French basketball who could benefit from this fight “big arm” between Tony Parker and Asvel Basket Qatari PSG . Not to mention that other NBAers, as Nicolas Batum in Caen, are willing to invest in the French basketball. Without also forget that Yann Bonato could take the reins of CSP Limoges or Boris Diaw already has a business Pau.
Create Asvel Brand
While six months ago, we felt disgusted by the lack of support from local authorities , Parker decided to hit hard, by offering his club. I just hope that our bodies will match its ambitions, and they accompany him in this project capable of recovering all the French basketball at clubs such as PSG just done in football. His ambition is the same.
“I want Asvel become] one of the biggest clubs in Europe. ASVEL the brand is known around the world, “he says in the Team . “I want, in two or three years to find an agreement with the Euroleague, to bring the Spurs to ASVEL for a friendly match to publicize the brand image of a Barcelona or a Real Madrid. “
