Raine Group and several former NBA stars are backing a Hong Kong startup that’s piecing together Asia’s first major basketball club competition with FIBA’s blessing. Asia League Holdings Ltd. has raised $13 million to date from investors including retired players Metta Sandiford-Artest, Baron Davis and Shane Battier, boosting its valuation to $100 million, the firm said Wednesday.
Ben Simmons … MVP candidate??? Metta Sandiford-Artest thinks so … telling TMZ Sports he truly believes the Philadelphia 76ers guard (at least for now, that is) … will be one of the best players in the NBA this season. The NBA champ had high praises for the disgruntled star when we spoke with him this week … and despite all the drama surrounding his trade demand, Metta says it will be a breakthrough season for the 25-year-old. “This kid is going to be an MVP candidate,” the former All-Star emphatically expressed. “Just because he’s a superstar doesn’t mean he needs to be a shooter.”
Storyline: Ben Simmons Trade?
The other No. 1 seed, All In, was able to get by Metta Sandiford-Artest’s No. 8 seed Pandas in the quarterfinals 78-53. But then All In was upset, 85-72, in the division semifinals by No. 5 seed Public Enemy, led by three-time Drew League MVP Franklin Session and Washington Wizards center Montrezl Harrell. Public Enemy blew out the 2019 champion M.H.P., led by former NBA player Nick Young, a day earlier in the quarterfinals 109-78. On Saturday, Public Enemy will face No. 7 seed Black Pearl Elite for the DeDe Smooth championship. It will be a rematch of a Week 3 game that Public Enemy won 89-85.
