The unification of the NBL, NBDL and bj-league to create the B. League represented a big step forward for men’s pro basketball in Japan.

Another important step took place over the weekend with a pair of big events: the Kawasaki Brave Thunders represented the first-year circuit in the East Asia Club Championship, beating South Korea’s Anyang KGC on Saturday night at Yoyogi National Gymnasium; Sunday’s All-Star Game, witnessed by 9,567 spectators at the same venue and a national TV audience, was a crowd-pleasing, high-scoring affair, with B. Black trumping B. White 117-95.
