Euroleague CEO Visits NBA Finals
Euroleague Basketball CEO Jordi Bertomeu travelled to the United States on Friday to take part in meetings with NBA officials during that league's playoff final series. Mr. Bertomeu will be a guest at Game 5 of the finals in Miami, Florida on Sunday and is scheduled to meet with NBA officials throughout the weekend. Euroleague Basketball and the NBA have joined in an unprecedented two-year partnership to hold preseason games throughout Europe starting in October. NBA Europe Live presented by EA SPORTS(tm) will feature the last three Euroleague champions - CSKA Moscow, Maccabi Tel Aviv and Winterthur FC Barcelona - and Lottomatica Roma playing exhibition games against the four NBA teams. Mr. Bertomeu and NBA commissioner David J. Stern announced the initiative at the same time last year, before Game 3 of the NBA finals.
