Buffalo joins Premier Basketball League
BUFFALO, NY (February 1, 2008) - The PBL announced today that a Buffalo franchise will be added to the current ten team league.

The yet to be named franchise is owned by NexxNow, Inc. a Media and Marketing Company based out of Buffalo, New York. According to NexxNow Chairman Todd Wier, "The Buffalo market will continue to enjoy some of the best professional basketball talent in America."


The PBL, a league in its first year of operation has teams in ten cities spread across the country including Dallas, Chicago and Rochester, an instant rival for the Buffalo team. The league says they plan to expand slowly and is enthusiastic about the Buffalo addition. The NexxNow management team fielded the Buffalo Silverbacks since 2005. The product was always professionally delivered and the City of Buffalo well represented: We are proud to have them as a member of the PBL stated Tom Doyle, PBL President.


NexxNow is and Sports Marketing and Media Company headed up by Paul Riley, an attorney and former producer/broadcaster with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. Modie Cox, former University of Buffalo star, 2007 ABA "Man of the Year" and "Do Your Best Never Quit" community outreach President will join the executive team with Riley and Wier.


The team is currently negotiating its venue and will begin play in January, 09.

C'mon Tbayz, join with me!

Ha-le-lu-jah!

Now it's your part, Tbayz!

Definitely great news. This was a solid organization that did things the right way and I'm sure the Razorsharks are thrilled to have a thruway rival again. It'll be interesting to see if they go back to Buff State or look elsewhere.

...but nothing on the PBL website yet:confused:

I would have rather seen both team and league make the announcement
at the same time. I hope that nothing is wrong that's holding it up.

I found the press release here (http://www.pblproball.com/news/?p=104) on the PBL site, or were you looking for something else?

..why is he doing a deal with the CBA? Doesn't make a lot of sense to me.

Speaking of the PBL, if there are going to run a road team all year, why not just put the team in Buffalo if they are going there next year anyway?

I wouldn't, just because I think you want them to start off doing it the right way. If they were to just stick a team there, the crowds would be meager, and that can be difficult to overcome. I think it's important to build a season ticket base, create some buzz, and prove that they're a legitimate player in the sports landscape. Just sticking a team there mid-season doesn't send that message, and they're obviously already overcoming a lot with their initial owner's issues at ECC and the ABA's many issues that they saw.

...I'm used to the usual front page fanfare of the ABA. (Maybe thats not a good thing...)
