If Monte O'Quinn isn't any good, Minot will get him off the roster pretty quick. That hasn't been a problem up there in the past.

Monte O'Quinn certainly didn't last long with the USBL Gary Steelheads and he only lasted the pre-season with the IBL Gary Steelheads. He's a big wide body though...but he does collect a lot of fouls.

Default Kenny has all of the answers, all of the time (he thinks).

Personally, I think the Skyrockets should have been allowed to die on the vine. Wasn't anything learned from Minot's IBA experience?

Weather isn't a factor?? Even hardy North Dakotans rarely venture out when its deathly cold outside. As in -40* windchills.... like die from exposure if you get stuck or stranded. As others have stated, the crowds weren't bad considering the Wed. tip-off and the horrendous chilly conditions. Have you ever been to ND Mr. Kenny?? How do you know so much?? Minot had a nice crowd last night and it'll only get better. This ABA stuff is a different breed but it's fast and furious. Ticket-buyers have been entertained in Minot thus far and the owners and volunteers seem to be making a nice effort to keep pro ball in town. What was there to learn from the so-called ''IBA experience''? Nothing bad surely....... only that Minot likes and supports pro ball and that it's a viable basketball community regardless of the league.

Kenny, I really miss your little lover's spats with Daleo....... why don't you go find him and stay away from the PC for awhile.

Have I ever been to North Dakota?!? No. I haven't been to South Dakota either. Doesn't stop me from understanding that some of the coldest mean temperatures in the continental United States can be found there. Brutal weather should have been anticipated long before bringing a franchise to town.

Viable basketball community regardless of the league?!? Maybe, but I have my doubts. The IBA and Apex experiences were red flags.
