BBP: Surrey United: "One of our strengths is United's past"

Surrey United - previously Surrey Heat - have gone through multiple changes this summer, including a change of owner, name, coach and various players.

The 2012/13 season was largely a success with the team finishing in fourth place and getting to the play-off semi-finals.

Now a new man is in charge; Jack Majewski, who was part of London United's BBL exploits which are confined to recent history.

He is keen to dispel any fears that Surrey's stay in the BBL may be shortened by the takeover and thinks the future can be bright.

He said: "I don't believe in a program which isn't run on integrity and financial transparency and at London United we were misled that the borough would pump money into basketball and we are paid for our mistakes."

"The main difference between then and now will be stability, we will use local young players and we can use Surrey Sports Park and Surrey University as a base, so players can come in for three years."

"We want to be competitive on the court, to embrace and galvanise the existing fan base, we want to expose young players to the BBL, if you're good enough, you're old enough."

"Thanks to our expansion of our academy we can bring new and exciting player from all over Europe - we've also had interest from players in America."

Majewski believes that the takeover was necessary for the future of the club and to make sure it stayed in business.

He continued: "We spoke to the previous owner and they said if we didn't takeover the club it would cease to exist, it needed the takeover."

"I have one regret in the departure of Creon as coach and that is how it was done, I called Creon to apologise and I would like to publicly apologise for the way he was dismissed."

"We appreciate what he was doing, but we are not able to fund full-time coaches, I don't believe it is a good financially model to fund a full squad of full-time players and staff."

"We changed the name from Surrey Heat to Surrey United as it shows a connection with London United and underlines the fact we need unity in English basketball - we need to be a strong, united club."

"One thing that is beyond me is the fact teams from smaller countries with less talent can play in Europe but no British teams do."

Chelsea and Man United stars clash in 2k18 showdown

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois proved he was a safe pair of hands once again, as he beat Timothy Fosu-Mensah (Crystal Palace, on loan from Manchester United), in the second semi-final of the NBA 2K18 Celebrity Gaming Tournament!
The Chelsea keeper, playing as the Boston Celtics, beat Fosu-Mensah's San Antonio Spurs 39-23.
It means he faces Arsenal defender Rob Holding in the final.
Courtois discussed his passion for the NBA after the game: “I don’t really have a team. I know a few players at the Lakers and at the Knicks, so I like to follow the players I really know well. I’m very excited to see Joel Embiid and the Philadelphia 76ers in London for the NBA London Game 2018 for example, I think it will be a great game and hopefully they will win as well.”
Fosu-Mensah then concluded by sharing his excitement for the NBA London Game 2018, “I’ve always wanted to see an NBA game and the London Game is going to be my first one ever, so I’m really excited to go. It’s going to be a grea…

Chelsea 'keeper Courtois downs Rob Holding on 2k18

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois was too hot to handle as he won the NBA 2K18 Celebrity Gaming Tournament Final.
Courtois had beaten Crystal Palace stars Mamadou Sakho and Timothy Fosu-Mensah on the way to the final where he faced off with Arsenal defender Rob Holding.
Holding himself had seen off Arsenal teammate Nacho Monreal and England rugby star Owen Farrell to reach the final.
The Chelsea goalkeeper elected to play as the Golden State Warriors, with the Arsenal defender selecting the Cleveland Cavaliers, in a rematch of the last three years of NBA Finals. As in the previous rounds, NBA legend Gary Payton oversaw the contest. 
After an incredibly hard-fought match, it was Courtois who was crowned the Champion of the NBA 2K18 Celebrity Gaming Tournament, as his Golden State Warriors team sealed a 39-22 victory over Rob Holding’s Cavaliers, with the Belgian awarded a special NBA2K18 Championship ring to commemorate his victory.  
Following his win, Courtois compared the atmosph…

Kendal Johnson is an American who wants to play in England in a busy week where he is likely to find out where he will be playing and when.

Johnson is the cousin of NBA star Marcus Camby and is looking to be a player/coach in the British Basketball League or English Basketball League.

He admits he doesn't know too much about the current state of British basketball but has heard good things.

He said: 'I've always wanted to go to England but I don't know a lot about the basketball league, I have a friend at the Worcester Wolves and he has told me there is lot's of positives.'

'I've played basketball since I was little obviously having Marcus Camby as a cousin I was always in that sort of environment.'

Johnson revealed he had been in talks with various BBL and EBL clubs and is hoping a move can be agreed in the coming days.

He also thinks that it is important to get young people involved in sport.

He added: 'One thing I would like to say to kids is…
