STORYLINE. FLASHBACK 2019

Last season, MLV Rowville Chargers won their 3rd Title in a row! That's a 3PEAT!
They built their dynasty behind their core players Eric Miraflores, Liam Platt, Tom Bottrell, Daniel Kinkela and the 2019 Defensive Player of the Year Terrance Swayne. Tom Bottrell drained the dagger 3-point shot to defeat the Melbourne Warriors. Tom Bottrell won his 3rd Finals MVP Award here in MBL! 

Watch how the 2019 MBL Grand Finals went down between Melbourne Warriors and MLV Chargers!


 

 

ABOUT MBL 2K20

If you are new to MBL or just heard of MBL, what is it?
 MBL is an open league. It means everybody can play here - Pros, Semi-pros, collegiate and recreational level players. Unlike other leagues, we don't have drafts or try-outs in MBL. We let ballers join in and show their FIREPOWER without any limitations.

GAME ON! This phrase means a lot to us. It means no excuses, you got game...just play the game.

We are removing the red tape and the old broke system that tells an athlete "You are not good enough to play here".  We believe everybody deserves the opportunity to show what they’ve got in the game of basketball and that's why we formed this league. MBL started in 2018 but the founders of MBL have done multiple Victorian basketball events and overseas leagues prior to MBL. We know what we've done,  we know we're capable and we know where we are going. Our mission has always been to showcase the Australian athletes and that is what this is all about. We are now on our 4th Season, AND THIS IS MBL 2K20!
