2006-07 PORTUGUESE LEAGUE PREVIEW
The Portuguese League has seen four different champions in as many years, so it is safe to say that it is one of the most unpredictable competitions in European basketball. Defending champion Ovarense Aerosoles signed Greg Stempin, Nuno Cortez, Shawn Jackson, M.C. Mazique and Miguel Miranda, all with Portuguese League experience, to join Nuno Manarte, Ben Reed or Nuno Perdigao. FC Porto Ferpinta signed Jon Smith, Julian Blanks, Francisco Machado and veteran bomber Nuno Marcal to join Paulo Cunha or Rodrigo Mascarenhas in the fight for the league title. Ginasio, which made it to the finals last season against all odds, comes back with a new roster featuring J.R. Harrison, Chris Schlatter, Ricky Woods or Jesse Smith, plus four other newcomers. Benfica looks for its first league title since 1994 with arguably the deepest roster in the whole competition. Francisco Rodrigues, Carlos Andrade, Miguel Minhava, Antonio Tavares, Leroy Watkins or Corey Benjamin turn Benfica into one of the top contenders. Beleneneses, with Jason Robinson, Diogo Carreira or Paulo Simao has slim title options, too. All teams will battle each other in a double round-robin system to get its place for the playoffs. Best-of-five quarterfinals, semifinals and finals will determine the Portuguese League champion.
