Chris Finch and Nick Nurse’s BBL match-ups included the league’s record regular-season visit of 11. 143 when deciding on the 1998-99 championship title.
Nurse was hired by Toronto in 2018 and has since won an NBA title and NBA Coach of the Year award.
We have a little favor to ask. In 2018 we wanted to make Hoopsfix sustainable by building our relationship directly with our readers. So far, Hoopsfix has created editorials, videos and podcasts to provide painful coverage of the UK game and its diverse culture and community.
We funded Hoopsfix through our basketball media creation freelance work. Unfortunately, this means not only that this falls short of our customers’ priorities, but that some of those customers are the same organizations that we need to report objectively about in order to place ourselves in a position of conflict.
We’d like to devote more time to our mission to help UK basketball reach its potential and produce even more content for the basketball community by making Hoopsfix a sustainable, 100% independent company, shared directly by our readers through Patreon is financed.
If everyone who likes our content wanted to support us, our future would be much more secure. For just $ 3 a month, you can support Hoopsfix in just a minute.
We are extremely honored and humbled to have a community of people who care about what we do and we look forward to being at the forefront of the UK game as it develops.
