New here, so I'm not sure what capacity there is for changes in team names or logos over the years. But those are all outright missing.

At the moment we only add current league teams that are playing, I think we already have all of them listed here:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_ ... (Australia)#Current_clubs

https://www.thesportsdb.com/league/4434

Then again, if you stick around and help with the artwork and data I would be happy to add any historical teams if you find them useful. Usually we just put them in the "_No League" category.

Currently the Australian Basketball section needs player artwork and details as well as events added before we start adding the lower leagues.

EDIT: If you are interested in what a completed team looks like check out the Brooklyn Nets as a nice example :mrgreen:

They aren't lower-league teams, they're former NBL teams. Some do still exist in lower leagues, yes, but my interest in them relates to their time in the NBL.

I have logos for 99% of them; I'm going through and resizing things to the correct format to finish up the current teams at the moment.

There's also an online archive of results for 1979-2014, if that can be scraped for results info. Different team names over the years might throw it off a bit but it'd be a start.

I have a 2013-dated list of every NBL player, the clubs played for, and the years played. Adding players would be a heck of a lot easier if the historic teams were already in place, it'd be a matter of going through that alphabetically and ticking everything off at once, rather than trying to go back and update info once older teams are introduced.

Brilliant, sounds like you could help out here :)

I've added all the teams, as well as some now defunct UK and US teams. If you can help out with any details and artwork that would be great :geek:

All discontinued Basketball teams worldwide can be put in this league:

At a glance, still missing Gold Coast Rollers.

I know nothing about scraping or any of that but the data is here, if anyone more knowledgeable wants to have a go: http://websites.sportstg.com/assoc_page ... -189-0-0-0

Cool fixed

I've done scraping for some other sports but its very time consuming and makes my brain hurt :).

If anyone can convert those websites into a simple excel spreadsheet with exact team names and scores in seperate columns then it can be imported pretty easily.

Turns out the're's a "no league" category that already contained the Townsville Crocodiles? https://www.thesportsdb.com/team/135401

Needs to be merged with the defunct version.
