View Full Version : East looks great

The East part of the PBL took a nice jump with the additions of the 2 best ABA teams. If one of the big problems with minor league basketball is travel, these are great moves for all parties involved. If the CBA merger is not going to happen now, it would be ideal for the Albany Patroons to join the PBL for the ease of travel and the possible thruway rivalries with Rochester and Buffalo. Maybe I am off base since I have no idea of the Patroons situation with the CBA ( Are the Patroons owned by the CBA since the office is there? ) I am just excited by todays news because I am a big fan of minor league basketball and I will be going to a lot more Razorsharks games in the future.

You know, of course, that Albany is not the only team in the CBA?! Logically, you have to include Pgh and East Ky., who would also be good rivals for the New York teams. Maybe even Minot. However the big question is the distance with Yakima, should they return.
