Formerly VancouverNBA.caWe've moved! VancouverHoops.com is the new home for VancouverNBA.ca! We hope you like it and please add a comment to a story or join up in the forums. Let's get together as fans of the NBA and let everyone know that our city wants the NBA back!
Who We Are:VancouverHoops.com is not associated, affiliated, sponsored or related in any way to the National Basketball Association. We are an unofficial fansite dedicated to brining back the NBA to Vancouver. We deserve it and we are going to rally the basketball fans of Vancouver!
Our Passion:Sure I'm passionate enough about the NBA in Vancouver to launch this site. I was one of the people who attempted to rally when it appeared there was still a chance to keep the Vancouver Grizzlies in Vancouver. I can honestly say that I convinced a group of my friends to buy some game packs. Sure it was half empty, but great times we had sitting in the upper bowl. So you can say I did my part and I'm still doing my part still today. Let's help make this happen. It's all about NBA fans speaking out together about our desire to have NBA back in Vancouver BC.
