    It isn't written in the article, but from what I understand from other sources NBA teams have yet to declare their participation. That will happen eventually, but the question is when?

    Anyway, finally a world club championship. I've been waiting for an event like this for a while. It's a great opportunity to see teams from places like Asia, South America, Africa, Oceania and even Europe for those of you who don't follow the Euroleague at all.

    Nanjing is a beautiful place, not that Chengdu isn't....Chengdu is older.

    I like the idea of the NBA champ facing off against the World Champ :P

    That's lame, I say if we don't send an NBA team, maybe we could send a college or NBDL team just to represent the U.S. To prevent any college violations, the money can go to the universities if they win.
