I think Pounder is bang-on in his assertion that Snohomish County is now trying to undermine the IBL. I think the real question is whether Nathan Mumm has the resources to actually do it. Also, for what it's worth, the NABL is purporting themselves (at least on their website) to be a professional le...

From NABL Press Release: “For the fans of Basketball in Snohomish County, this new league was a must,” explained Explosion owner Nathan Mumm. “We had Devon Greene last year on the team who led the league in scoring and we needed to improve the competition level of talent we played.” Now that's a go...

Four Road Games?!

What I find even more interesting than this "IBL United" concept is the home/road schedules for Edmonton and Los Angeles. Edmonton has just four road games outside of Alberta, and Los Angeles has three road games in Las Vegas and one road game in Washington right before the IBL playoff tournament. A...

If I recall, the Highflyers played a few games in 2008, filling in for Eugene after they decided not to play shortly before the season started, and also for the Chinese team when they didn't arrive stateside in time. Since they don't have a web presence outside of a bare-bones MySpace page, I don't ...

Also, from what I understand, Aoshen has been trying every off-season to get back into the Chinese Basketball Association. The only thing that stopped them from re-joining this season was that they couldn't find a venue in time back in their home country. They've been one of the longest-running team...
