Liga ACB Live
Arguably the best domestic league in Europe, the Liga ACB features the best 17 teams from Spain who are battling for the title every year. The top teams are typically considered to be Regal FC Barcelona, Real Madrid, DKV Joventud Badalona, Tau Vitoria and Unicaja Malaga. In fact, all five of the aforementioned teams also play in the Euroleague making the ACB league the only domestic European league with more than three Euroleague teams. Covered live here on www.watchlivenba.com, subscribers can watch all games throughout the regular season and playoffs.
The ACB liga is organized in a single division featuring 17 teams playing each other twice during the regular season. Afterwards, the best eight teams qualify for the playoffs which employ a best-of-five series system derived from the NBA. Similarly, annual awards for the Most Valuable Player (MVP) and best scorer are held like in the NBA.
In the history of the ACB league Regal FC Barcelona and Real Madrid have proven to be the most dominant forces. More specifically, FC Barcelona won the title 11 times while Real Madrid was able to come out on top 8 times in 13 finals appearances. However, more recently Tau Vitoria managed to establish themselves among the league leaders making it to the finals three times in the past four years.
Even though NBA players are more often lured to Greece and Russia due to higher salaries, the number of young talented players is unmatched in the ACB League. NBA scouts closely observe the league which led to a considerable amount of Spanish players being drafted in recent NBA drafts.
Thus, it is no surprise that Ricky Rubio will join the likes of all-star Pau Gasol and NBA slam-dunk contestant Rudy Fernandez this summer. Furthermore, well-established NBA players like Jose Calderon, Andres Nocioni, Marc Gasol, Anderson Varejão and Luis Scola also used to play in the Liga ACB.
