Probably a professional league to start.. Without that no players will be developed and the NT will rely on any male who is over 6'5 in the country despite if he knows what basketball is or not.
That would require tremendous effort and a lot money. I think calling up rejects of another country would be way more efficient.

That's what we're doing now in football

Exactly my point. We have to find our basketball version of "Switzerland" :)

Tomorrow finally they’ll sign the one league agreement between Albania and Kosovo . The league will consist of 8 teams, 4 from each country and it will be named “ Liga Unike” . Hopefully we’ll see more supporters of this sport in Albania aswell because Kosovo is light years ahead in basket.

This is super interesting and should be good for basketball as there's simply a lack of "professional" teams in both countries (more so Albania). I also hope we use this as a case study for possible integrations of our football league such as a national cup between Albania and Kosova which should drive up revenue and interest in a competition no one cares about.

No info has come out yet about how thing will be done but i guess the rest of the teams in both countries will play the local Superleague. This will raise the level and maybe the winner in few years might get to EUROLEAGUE playoffs .
