NBA Commissioner Adam Silver has described the current conflict between EuroLeague Basketball and FIBA as a political system that is ‘beyond complicated’.
Speaking at the annual press conference in London before the traditional regular game at the 02 Arena which this year pits the Boston Celtics and the Philadelphia 76ers.
Silver on EuroLeague/FIBA dispute: I have concerns. We are in touch with both camps but its something we don't like to see. We (NBA) seem to live in a different world where we have different rules but national game is important. It seems the situation is beyond complicated.
