emeka ekeEmeka Eke. With an incredible wealth of experience garnered over an extensive period of two years in basketball media that has provided a foundational leverage in international basketball, and recently scouting at various levels, being well versed in global basketball with emphasis on the NBA & NCAA complements my knowledge of the game which I’ve been involved in for the past fifteen years; first as a player and later as a coach.

In 2010, I founded Motion sports, a forum for basketball analysis which has been first love after basketball.
In 2002, I founded Veteran Sports Management, which helps promote basketball in local high schools and identifies talents in Nigeria.

A voracious reader of sorts, I love to read extensively.

Uygar Karaca is a sportswriter and commentator who is enthusiastic about European basketball. Combining the game with some history and analysis; nothing is more delicious for an ex small forward who is interested in coaching.

He got MA and BA Economics degrees from the Bosphorus Universtiy and that explains the tendency to see the socio economical aspects of the game. However, the reason that why he is watching some 20 or 30 years old games again and again, looking for old newspapers that talks about basketball is still unknown by him.

The only thing he knows is the Americans invented it and the Yugoslavians perfected it.
