David Kahn, the president of Paris Basketball, expressed his excitement, relief, and surreal feeling prior to the inauguration of the Adidas Arena on Sunday. He described it as a long-awaited moment, having been involved in the project of Paris Basketball since its inception in 2018. The new arena is expected to elevate the club to a whole new level, as Paris previously played at the outdated Halle Carpentier. Kahn, at 62 years old, has been leading the Paris Basketball project since its formation, after having previously worked with the Pacers and the T-Wolves in the NBA.
The inauguration marks a significant milestone for the club, and Kahn is enthusiastic about the opportunities it will bring for the team.
