The Global Basketball Alliance Returns!!
(Atlanta, Georgia) (June 26, 2007)- Moose Lewis, Managing Member of the Global Basketball Alliance, LLC, proudly announces the return of the groundbreaking league, the GBA and its moneyball to resume play in February 2008. Tryouts for talent will begin in August 2007 beginning in Atlanta, Georgia and continuing in nine (9) additional cities across the United States. Pre-registration begins immediately
States Mr. Lewis, After buying out all partners, members, and team licensees, we feel that the time is right to begin play in both a winter season as well as a spring season to capitalize on the popularity of minor league sports and especially basketball. Continuation of a league year round gives it the opportunity to be viewed as a business and to also keep the league in the news the entire year. Furthermore, I have turned over the day to day operations of the professional boxing sanctioning body to my Director of Championships so I can devote all my time to the GBA and its team licensees. Make no mistake that we will be a true developmental league for the top minor leagues as well as foreign leagues. Tapes of all games will be given to all players and each player will be able to leave the league at any time for a better opportunity. The true benefit of players playing in the GBA is having current footage of their talent in a structured environment-for two (2) seasons within one (1) year-and adequate breaks between the seasons.
In addition, all games will be available on the internet through http://www.MizlouSports.com for viewing around the world-and dont forget, the GBA will be using its own branded basketball by Baden and the red and white moneyball will be a staple as fans love the excitement it brings in the last two (2) minutes.
Persons wishing to be involved with the GBA on a corporate level or license a team are urged to contact us immediately.
For more information on the GBA, please contact the home office.
I tried to keep up with the various proposed team names in the original GBA and some that popped up from time to time on the GBA site. Some were names were familiar and others were interesting. Who can forget the Tri-State Zombies?
