Quo vadis, LEB Gold?

The crisis and mismanagement have ravaged the Spanish second competition.
Depreciation has suffered in recent years the LEB Gold (and thus all Spanish Federaton-dependant lower categories) obeys to the same crisis that will eventually folded the Italian second division. We can note that the old Lega Basket A-2 category between 1975 and 2001 was considered the best second division in FIBA history. Its successor, the LegaDue, although maintained his professional character, gradually began to swarm low-quality foreigners (and Europeans), and the economic crisis has forced teams to such ruin that now the new LNP Gold and Silver officially are considered as "amateurs". This means that although in practice they are semiprofessional leagues, teams are empowered to not sign contracts or pay as they please.
Economic merit on sporting merit, capital concentration, the denial of rights to players who do not have managers, who in turn developed a tendency to abuse their customers as clubs do not pay (there are some that up to 50 % of salary chunk) and the nearly null attendance contribution (today more than half of the clubs have 95 % of its budget based on sponsors) realize a poisonous cocktail, which can be deadly in the short term. God help us and save.
