Ok this gave me a pretty good chuckle. So if the Storm aren't around next year does Mark get his pick back? On a serious note though with 7 teams there and 14 picks total almost half of those in attendance got drafted. only one of the draftees had any size (6-7 to 7-0 ft). is it a 6'6 and under league?

Also did these guys go to college? Why not list their schools.

Tupelo Rock & Rollers - Brandon Hudson- 6'10 C

That aside, are any of these players remotely good? I looked up the Flight's guy and I couldnt find ANYTHING on him. What level is WBA ball on?

Yea at first glance I read him at 6'1. Anyways a few years ago I'd say outside of NBA summer league the WBA was tops. Now I'm not so sure. Since I'm planning to check out a camp coming up I'm just trying to get it all figured out.

I was just on the florida flight website again. I watched marks video of himself. And his video with his jesus ministries. I don't know where to start. I will say this, at least mark is not out there like those militias trying to kill cops. However, I think his bio to the kids sounds more like Jeff Hornecek, who by the way, his high school coach here in Illinois told him he was not good enough to play in college.

I do have a few questions. Mark says he was paid to play, What team paid Mark to play basketball?

And I thought the WBA league rules prohibit owners from playing. Is this not true?

And were those inner city kids in Florida given free tickets to see the Flight play? and does and 8 year old really care about international basketball? And those kids are used to watching The Orlando magic play on TV. Will the flight really hold their interest?


And how come Mark was not in the draft? Will the WBA draft be on TV tape delay like the PBL was?


And one last thing, is there any video of Mark playing anywhere for us to see?

Huh? Besides a couple of cynical/sarcastic questions, what does any of this have to do with the WBA draft? If you are so enamored with Mark King start your own thread.

With this draft full of misfits and bums, the point is that people do not pay their hard earned money to watch bad basketball players playing bad basketball in some rinky dink high school gym or rec center. People want to see seven footers and players that they watched in the NCAA tournament, not guys who played in the Peach Belt conference and who stared at Clayton State. Nobody wants to see this. On a hot summer night in Florida where you could fishing, or walking along the beach, or going to an air conditioned movie theater, or one hundered other things you could be doing, why would you circle the calander and go watch the Flight led by 5'11 Jacob Carver? Big rivalry- here comes the Decatur Courtkings led by Robert Bankhead 5'11 PG Harris-Stowe St. I can't wait......not

Again people if you want to talk about Mark King start your own thread like Wellington suggested. Leave this guy alone! He is doing what he wants to do and that is following his dreams. Its time to move on and talk about the WBA draft.

That post summed up the WBA draft and the WBA as a whole.
