Bundesliga / NBA extravaganza!

With Bundesliga teams still kicking around in friendlies of questionable consequence, Talking Fussball makes its return in full goofball mode. After chewing over Bayern’s appointment of a new Sporting Director and the potential dawn of a new big-spending era for Hannover 96, Matt and Abel get down to business. And by ‘business’ they mean solving the ancient riddle of: Which teams from the National Basketball Association should be twinned with which Bundesliga teams?

Some are easy (Hamburger SV = NY Knicks), some tricky (are Bayern the Warriors, for their current dominance, or the Spurs, for their resilience?) If you’re an NBA fan looking to get into a Bundesliga club, or a German football fan sniffing around the Association for a team, look no further. And if you’re a fan of cross-sport comparisons or general tomfoolery, you’re in luck as well.
