'German Quota' A Success In Basketball Bundesliga, Game Time Increased To 31.19%

The game time of German players in the Basketball Bundesliga (BBL) "has increase from 17.13% in '06 to 31.19% this season" due to a newly introduced "German quota," according to Michael Reinsch of the FRANKFURTER ALLGEMEINE ZEITUNG. Since the start of '12-13 season, the 12-man roster of a BBL club "has to include a minimum of six German players." Back in '06, this number "was only two." A total of 108 roster openings in the league are reserved for German players. League President Thomas Braumann said, "Real German heros are still missing." But German national team coach Frank Menz "promised that it will happen." No talented player "has to go to a U.S. college anymore to play in the Bundesliga." The reason is that "talent is scouted earlier, and clubs have to have two full-time youth coaches"  (FAZ, 3/29).
