What's up with the Elkhart Express not sending any players to the 2008 IBL all*star game?!? Okay, the game doesn't count in the standings and the Express are currently playing a busy schedule, but there is a bigger picture. The bigger picture is exposure for the IBL, exposure for the players, and exposure for the Elkhart Express. Gary, Indiana is in the Chicago media market afterall. Geez! It's not like the Express are in danger of losing a place in the standings with a current record of 15-1.

The Express are completely focused on the task at hand and that's why no stars from the team will take part in the IBL All-Star Game slated for Thursday night in Gary. Beathea has decided to send his four players from China to represent his franchise and take part in the game in which participation is strictly voluntary. The league will honor its All-Star selections after the season. Each coach can nominate four players to be considered for All-Star honors.

Sending four Chinese players to represent the Express in the all*star game is not going to cut it. Those players may be all*stars in China (who knows?), but those players do not represent the best the Express have to offer. Not by a long shot.

Oh well. Maybe this will backfire on the Express in some way.
