Oh, look

The Jam won. Some of the newer players like Butch, Jackson and Daniels seem to be contributing well.

Austin did that with their jerseys too last season. Never made any sense. Maybe they wanted to remind the fans they actually were in Austin.

Decent video, nice crowd. What's with the Kebs' shorts?

Question Question

Why wouldn't the ABA want to make the most up to date schedule available to the public?

It would seem to be a prudent thing to do.

Maybe the OP is sarcastic and I missed it.

Well

If you're going to take a season off, this is the time to do it. It might work out, but that's a fairly dumb contract clause if there is no buyout opportunity.

I'll try to get down to San Antonio in January to take in the Fuel/Chaparrals game provided the two teams last that long. At least the Fuel have a better venue location than previous teams.

No, it doesn't. The D-League's advantages for players is that it...

Osbourne was an interim head coach in Austin after Dennis Johnson died. Nice guy. Probably getting close to having another shot at a head coaching job.

I can confirm this about the Lawton paper. I think it might behoove the Cavalry to let KSWO know that they are in the PBL so they can update their sports page accordingly.

kinda weird

You know, when a1 throws former PBL owners under the bus by saying things like they have no money, he is actually damning the PBL itself and its vetting and selection process.
