comment on the article

Talks have begun about the possibility of Britain hosting the European Championship finals in 2015.

Part of the thinking is that it would help to create a legacy following the London Olympics in 2012. Matches could take place in a variety of locations, including London, Manchester, Liverpool and Glasgow.

What do you think?

This would represent another iconic step for British Basketball. Excited at the thought of it.

With the emergence of British stars in the NBA, this could be our chance to break out and take some big scalps.

i attended the 2009 Euroas in Poland and it was awesome. In terms of strength of depth Eurobasket is stronger than even the World and Olympics. No teams making up the numbers. The travelling fans base is big and the atmosphere brilliant. The general sports fan in GB would definitely "get" the European champs

Does anyone have any views on which venues should be chosen - which stadiums would be best suited to creating a great atmosphere?

London's O2 arena would be perfect, I feel that the public would come out and support team GB.

Other venues chosen could be the Manchester MEN, Birmingham NEC?
