last year around this time, I asked if the PBL was going to be a part of FIBA. Everyone said yes because the PBL was playing in the Tournament of Americas. I said that this was two seperate things-but oh well. I checked with FIBA offices, the PBL is not a member to this date. The CBA is a member, but the PBL is not. People are saying the PBL is a member or going to be a member, any udates on this? One year has past-no membership.

ya, it's definitely two separate things. who said it was the same?

my impression was that the pbl was testing the waters with fiba in that tournament.

my impression also is that the true value of fiba membership was being measured and that no final decision has been made yet. i'm not sure that there is a compelling case to join, although they will likely maintain a good relationship with fiba, perhaps continuing to send an all star team (maybe this year a real one) to one of the tourneys.
