Basketball in Albania is very poor and not popular, however in Kosova it's really good, or it used to be.
Ex NBA players started to join the teams together with other quality players from USA, Canada Croatia, Bosnia, Slovenia, Macedonia and also the best albanian players from balkan.
It did actually go as far that the refferes were foreigners,,,
B-ball was so popular that half of the audience couldn't get in, even though they broadcasted it free on TV.
This 2 last seasons has started to be poorer, specially this year.
The investments doesn't invest when they know it's useless cuz Kosova is not a FIBA member,
