The line-up for the British Basketball Play-Off Finals are now set as a potentially record breaking crowd next Sunday at The O2 in London prepares to see the last silverware of the season handed out.
The BBL Play-Off Final will see BBL Champions and Trophy winners Leicester Riders make a return to the capital after featuring in last year’s edition when they were edged out by DBL Sharks Sheffield.
Having comfortably cruised past London Lions in both legs of the Semi-Finals, the Ed Percival Molten BBL Coach of the Year Rob Paternostro will take his side up against familiar rivals in the shape of the 2017 BBL Cup winners and league runners-up Esh Group Eagles Newcastle.
The Eagles had to fight off Worcester Wolves in an epic Semi-Finals series to make it to The 02, where they won the Play-Off title just two years ago and head coach Fab Flournoy MBE will be looking to add to the longest honours list in BBL history.
With MVP candidates such as Taylor King and Rahmon Fletcher on show for each team, it promises to be exhilarating as the top two teams in the country go head-to-head. Londoners Drew Sullivan (Riders) and Orlan Jackman (Eagles) will also put it all on the line for their respective teams, with the legendary Sullivan chasing his record-breaking 21st title and Jackman playing the role of hungry young contender, in pursuit of his first playoff crown.
Meanwhile history will be made in the WBBL Play-Off Final as Nottingham Wildcats or Sevenoaks Suns look to take the coveted prize for the first time. WBBL Champions Wildcats will be the favourites behind the outstanding Ashley Harris and influential Siobhan Prior.
Rapper Tinchy Stryder is also ready to land at The 02 in London to give a special performance at the 2017 Basketball Play-Off Finals. Winner of a MOBO Awards Best Video, he has sold over 1 million records including the huge official chart #1 single ‘Number 1’. He also took part in ITV’s ‘I’m A Celebrity’ in 2014.
